  1. Yummy. Made it by recipe the first time and was great. Second time I added some onion and because I like pickly, added some chopped up pickle on just my plate. Was awesome. Will make again and again.

  2. I personally loved this dish but my kids did not. They didn't care for the texture of the tater tots after they cooked. If I were to make it again, I would leave out the tots, spread the meat mixture in the pan, and then top it with the tots. This approach would crisp up the tots more I think. 🙂

  3. Have no cheese soup on hand. Since Shredded cheese is an ingredient would it work to replace cheese soup with cream of mushroom? I'm assuming other than changing flavor slightly it would work.

  4. Are the bacon bits real crunchy when you cook them? Can't have something too crunchy, needs to be a bit softer. Thanks!

    1. No – I used the precooked bacon pieces/bits and they aren't hard. You can also use an equal amount of cooked chopped bacon.

  5. No exaggeration – this is really good! I used Ore-Ida Mini Tater Tots and an entire package of precooked bacon (2.6 oz). For a little extra flavor I added a sauteed onion and some Lawry's Seasoned Salt. By mistake we purchased the Campbell's Healthy Request Cheddar Cheese soup (instead of the regular type) and it worked out fine. Loved it!!!

  6. What can I use for the cheese soup, since I don't have any on hand and I would love to make this for my husband tonight.

  7. I bet it would be great in a crock pot. It would be great anywhere. Great recipe. Mmmmmmm making it again a week later. 🙂

  8. I made this tonight but doubled it for my house and the neighbors. I added onions, garlic powder, and hamburger seasoning. Everyone in both houses loved it. Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

  9. We had this last week and it was a hit. I will definitely make this over my old tatter tot casserole recipe.
