I love cooking anything in the crockpot, why I had never thought of making a Tater Tot Casserole in the crockpot is beyond me. I saw a recipe for crockpot Tater Tot Casserole on Youtube and had to try it, after all, I love tater tots and I also love my crockpot so it was an obvious match made in Heaven for me. The recipe couldn8217;t be easier, I just pre-cooked the hamburger meat in a skillet with some bacon, diced onion, and minced garlic. Then I added a packet of Taco Seasoning, and a half a cup of water I then removed the meat mixture from the heat and set aside.
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 small onion diced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 32 oz. bag tater tots
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 10.5 oz. cream of mushroom soup
- 2 14.5 oz. cans green beans, drained (or 1 small bag frozen)
- 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
In a large skillet set over medium-high heat add the ground beef and onion. Cook until the beef is brown. Drain fat. Add the cream of mushroom soup and milk to the pan with the beef. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir. Add half of the tater tots to the slow cooker, spread them out to an even layer. Add the green beans next. Then the rest of the tater tots. Pour over the beef mixture. Sprinkle over the cheese. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time. Serve and enjoy!
