  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 bag frozen tater tots
  • 1 bag shredded cheese
  • Sour cream (adjust to taste)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • Bacon slices (amount to your liking)
  • 2 cans roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup
  • 1.5 cans condensed cheddar cheese soup
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt (S/P), Onion Powder (OP), Garlic Powder (GP), Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • Oil and butter for cooking

Optional Toppings:

  • Green onions, chopped
  • Salsa


1. Prepare Ingredients:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a casserole dish (approximately 9×11 inches).

2. Cook Onions:

  • In a skillet, sauté the chopped onion in a little oil and butter until slightly tender. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Cook Ground Beef:

  • Add ground beef to the skillet with the onions. Season with Worcestershire sauce, Montreal Steak Seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Cook until the meat is browned.

4. Cook Bacon:

  • In a separate skillet, cook the bacon until crispy. Once done, chop it into small pieces.

5. Prepare Creamy Mixture:

  • To the cooked beef and onions, add the roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup, condensed cheddar cheese soup, and sour cream. Adjust the amount of sour cream to achieve your desired creaminess. Let it heat up for about 5 minutes.

6. Add Bacon Grease:

  • Add some of the bacon grease to the mixture for extra flavor. Cook for a couple more minutes to allow the mixture to thicken slightly.

7. Assemble the Casserole:

  • Arrange most of the frozen tater tots at the bottom of the greased casserole dish. Add the beef and soup mixture on top. Sprinkle about half to three-quarters of the shredded cheese and some of the chopped bacon. Add the remaining tater tots on top.

8. Bake:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes.

9. Add Remaining Cheese and Bacon:

  • About 5-10 minutes before the casserole is done, sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese and chopped bacon on top. Continue baking until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

10. Garnish and Serve: – Once out of the oven, garnish with chopped green onions if desired. Serve hot.

11. Optional: – Serve with salsa on the side for those who like an extra kick.

12. Enjoy: – Enjoy this delicious and indulgent Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Casserole!
