Stop what you are doing and go get the ingredients to make this yummy “Cracked Out” Tater Tot Casserole! This was SO good! I wanted to eat the entire pan myself! I didn’t, but I totally wanted to!

In case you are new here, “Cracked Out” is what I call the flavor combination of cheddar, bacon and ranch. It all started with the original “Crack Dip” way back in 2008. I made it for a football game, and we couldn’t stop eating it. We started calling it “Crack”.  This Tater Tot Casserole is no different. It is so addictive. It is also super easy to make. This casserole can be made ahead of time and frozen for later too! Make it!

  1. I used this as the base of my casserole tonight and it was delicious! I used mushroom soup since I don't like cream of chicken. As Mary suggested, I added some chopped up chicken thighs as well and just upped the temp. Add some extra spices and it was super tasty!

  3. This was amazing! I added a couple of chicken breasts, cubed, to the recipe. They weren't fully cooked at the end of 45 min at 350, so I upped the temp to 375 for 20 more min. Next time I'll just cook it at 375 the whole time.

    Thanks for the meal!

    1. You buy the Oscar Mayer bag of bacon pieces that already cooked. It should be next to the salad dressing at your grocery store.

  4. Stephanie, your site has become my "go to" for yummy recipes…thank you! Teenage son especially loves all your "Crack" recipes…I added some cooked chicken to this for a quick meal & he raved. Keep up the great work!

  5. I live in UK, can you tell me what Ranch dressing mix is? What can I use as a substitute? This looks and sounds a delicious dish and want to try it.

  6. Could not find "2 lb." tater tots. Everywhere its 28 oz. So I used 2- 28 oz. bags of baby taters tots. An extra can of cream of chicken soup, a white onion, chopped. And a 12.5 oz. can of cooked chicken meat. Just fit in my pan. Gave it an extra 15 minutes to bake. Fantastic! Definitely a keeper.

    1. I was wondering about the chicken. I have chix breast and don't know how much to put in. I thought this was supposed to be a chicken recipe. No chix listed in recipe?

    1. This is literally my go to recipe for any family gathering. It's also my husbands favorite thing I make. In fact, it's the holidays and my aunt contacted my mother to ask me for this recipe two days ago so she can make it for her family gather. This recipe is great!
