My family loves this Loaded Tater Tot Casserole! This is an easy recipe to make for your family too. Your kids will love it too!
Loaded Tater Tot Casserole
Is it casserole season yet? We’re heading into September and the temperatures are still warm here in Phoenix, but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying a yummy casserole every now and then. Many of y’all are familiar with tater tot casserole – ya know the one with ground beef … but this Loaded Tater Tot Casserole is full of bacon, chicken, cheese and scrumptious from-scratch chicken gravy!
I got this idea from my bloggy friend, Sheena over at Hot Eats and Cool Reads. I immediately knew my family would LOVE this. The only thing I did different to the recipe was to add the gravy – because who doesn’t love gravy?! 😉 If you’re pressed for time, you could substitute jarred gravy if you would like – or you can even omit it completely like Sheena did.

This looks great! I had to laugh tho… because you said Phoenix is still hot heading into September. Phoenix is hot heading into November!! Just kidding. My son lives there and at Christmas time, when you guys are cold, we think it's perfect! I'm making this casserole this weekend.

Tater Tot Casserole is a fav of my guys, but I love this spin of it being loaded. My latest installment of A Little About Diana is up and I've accepted your for the Leibster Award. My criteria for picking my 11 bloggers were people who have read/asked me questions for my monthly feature about me. Since you have asked me questions I awarded you in return, but it's actually just a big thanks since you've already got the award.
looks delicious….just mouthwatering!
This looks nice and hearty and I bet hubby and the kids would both like it!
This looks fantastic. We love tots, so I'm sure this would be a hit at our house! Thanks for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday.
