Tater Tot Casserole

A great meal made by combining easily packed and stored items to create a tater tot casserole is a simple meal option.

Frozen tater tots can be hard to store without an RV or portable freezer unit so can be substituted with dehydrated potatoes, canned sliced potatoes or pre-shredded hash potatoes that can be kept in a cooler. If keen you can also make your own tater tots.

Although this is a great meal for children it can be pushed up a notch with extra additions like a sprinkling of cheese on top, a dash of your favorite rub, a kick of heat in the beef element, or more exotic vegetables.

Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs (680g) ground beef

1 small onion, diced

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 can cream of chicken soup

1/4 cup water

2 cans vegetables

1 small bag frozen tater tots

salt and pepper, to taste

Equipment

1 large skillet

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat the camp oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Tip: A camp oven includes gas ovens, closed BBQ, smokers, and similar.

  2. Heat the large skillet then add the ground beef to brown, drain any excess fat.

  3. Add the onion and cook until transparent.

  4. Add the cans of cream of mushroom soup and cream of chicken soup, then rinse the cans with a small amount of water and tip in also. This will be about 1/4 cup of water.

  5. Drain the vegetables of choice, the photo example is a can of sweet corn, and can of peas and carrots. Add these to the casserole and stir in gently being aware that can vegetables tend to be soft and can easily become mushy.

  6. Spread the tatter tots across the top of the casserole and then place it in the preheated camp oven to cook for 45 minutes.

    Tip: For a reduced cooking time you can start to cook the frozen tatter tots in another pan then add to the base when it is ready.
