(Healthier) Tatertot Casserole 

So I am totally not above making Tatertot casserole, my only issue with it is, I think cream soups are disgusting and I try and avoid them in all of my recipes. This kind of resembled more of a shepherd’s  pie with tatertots on top, but it was really yummy, regardless! 

Ingredients: 

– 1 lb. ground beef 

– 1 onion, diced 

– 1 cup frozen vegetables (I used a mixed vegetables assortment) 

– 1 1/2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce 

– 1 tbsp. chili powder 

– 1/2-1 cup of water or beef broth (beef broth would give more flavor, I was just lazy) 

– 1-2 cups shredded cheese 

– 3/4 of a 32oz bag of tatertots 

– salt, pepper, and garlic powder, to taste  

Directions: 

Preheat your oven to 350F. 

Begin by browning your meat and onions. Once no longer pink, drain the fat and return to pan. 

Add to the mixture: Worcestershire, seasonings, chili powder, frozen veggies, and water/broth. Give everything a big stir and taste and adjust seasonings, as needed. Also adjust your liquid amount too. Just try not to add too much liquid, you don’t want a soup! Cook for a few minutes until vegetables are no longer frozen, and you have a good consistency. 

Pour into an 8x 11-inch baking dish. Sprinkle on shredded cheese, and then top with frozen tatertots. (You could sprinkle on a bit more cheese on top, if you really want to get wild 😉

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the tatertots are crispy on top. Remove from oven and let set a few minutes before serving. I served mine with a fresh fruit salad and it was a nice light addition to our meal. Enjoy!
