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'm making this tonight and want to add chicken. I hope two cups of shredded chicken will work. I might add a little milk to make up for the additional chicken! Thoughts?

  2. How many people does this recipe serve? We bought all the stuff now I'm just going it feeds all 7 of us or should we double it?

  3. Hi! Sorry to bring this up months later.. I'm making this for a holiday party on Monday but wanted to make it in advance and freeze it.. I read online to thaw casseroles overnight, but since the tater tots are supposed to be frozen, I'm afraid thawing them ovenight will ruin it. I am known for ruining just about everything I have ever attempted to bake so I figured I'd ask incase anyone happens to be looking at this post anymore ???? sorry if this sounds dumb ???? thanks!

    1. I do thaw this before baking and it is fine. You can also cover it with foil and bake for 20 minutes and uncover and bake an additional 40 to 45 minutes.

  4. I made this recipe and added chicken and more bacon and cheese. Turned out great. I did use a bigger casserole dish though 11×14

  5. How long do you cook the "Cracked Out" Tater Tot Casserole in the crock pot and at which temperature? I would like to include chicken breast cut up (cooked or uncooked?)
