More About This Recipe
  • Easy, cheesy and full of meatballs and tater tots. And did I say easy? You know this dish. But did you know how entirely simple it is to toss together? The first recipe most newlyweds learn to make while living on student loans at a university in Utah is tater tot casserole. I don’t know why this tradition started. I don’t even know how the recipe got passed on. But, for whatever reason, marriage meant learning how to cook a casserole. And that casserole is this casserole. I’ve got a soft spot for this zany recipe. A really lazy version of shepherd's pie, the traditional version mixes meat with beans, coats them in a cream sauce, and tops them with cheese-covered tater tots. Sounds like shepherd's pie without the mashed potatoes, doesn’t it? Newlyweds, penny pinchers, and tater tot lovers everywhere can now rejoice. We’ve gone and taken the classic casserole, tossed it into a slow cooker, and made it easier than ever!
