Recipe Box, Tator Tot Bake with Crispy Onions

I had some frozen Tator Tots leftover from making Brown Sugar Bacon Bundles and decided they might be just the perfect side dish for BBQ pork


This is just a humble little throw together casserole and it isn’t likely to win any beauty contests


But!  It’s fast, easy and tasty!

It’s actually green bean casserole with Tater tots instead of green beans 🙂

Juicy Details

Look for Fresh Gourmet Crispy Onions near the croutons and salad dressing in the grocery store

Another favorite Potato Casserole, with NO processed ingredients,  is Sinful Scalloped potatoes here.  It is made from simple, fresh ingredients,  potatoes, cheese, cream and is quickly put together.  Very impressive for guests and a little goes a long way~

    Pulled pork is a favorite here…the tater tot casserole sounds yummy…to be truthful, I didn’t know they were still on the market. Those scalloped potatoes look delicious…I never have good luck making them, the sauce part always separates. I am going to try your honey’s recipe.

    • I think you’ll find this recipe for scalloped potatoes super easy Marigene! I much prefer real ingredients and the “real” scalloped potatoes really aren’t much harder to make than the convenience food Tater Tot casserole, hope you enjoy~

  3. Looks good, Jenna and so does the bbq pork. Been awhile since I did bbq. Need to do that next week.
