Potato Casseroles are my favorite side dishes. They are easy to make, taste delicious and are wonderful freezer dishes! This French Onion Tater Tot Casserole is not different. Instead of using shredded hash browns, I used a bag of tater tots. I love tater tots and they are super delicious in this French Onion Tater Tot Casserole. 

The French Onion part of this casserole comes from your favorite refrigerated sour cream-based French Onion dip. I prefer Kraft French Onion dip, but any refrigerated French Onion dip will work great. I loved the flavors in this casserole. I could have made a meal out of it! We like to serve it with chicken, steaks, pork tenderloin, and burgers. It really goes with everything. Make this ASAP!

  1. I have it in the oven right now havent had it in years and hope it is as good as it was the first time we having hamburger steak with it with the onions and mushrooms and brown gravy

    1. I have never made this without the soup. So unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  2. Thank you for a great recipe. My whole family enjoyed it. The only change I made was using a can of Cream of Onion soup instead of chicken. Thank you again.

  4. Thanks Stephanie, I always like information for me because I live by myself and most recipe make to much for a single person and if I pass it onto someone else for information that person. Happy you responded so quickly. Most, times when I leave a comment I do not get a reply.

  5. About how long can it be in the freezer? Would you take it out of the refrigerator when thawed and let it sit about 30 mins? To come to room temperature and cook it according to the directions.

    1. It would be great if you can let it get to room temperature before baking. If not, just add a few minutes to the baking time.
      I think it will keep a couple of months frozen. I keep pans of it in our freezer for a couple of months and it is always fine.

  6. I just made mine with some shredded chicken I cooked in the crockpot and put in the freezer. 45 minutes to go. I'm waiting!!!! Hurry up and cook!!!.

  7. Thank you for this recipe Stephanie! It was delicious. I had a whole rotisserie chicken in my fridge so I incorporated it into the casserole and it was great for a dinner entree with a veggie side.
