One thing we like to do is make semi-homemade meals. It’s so easy to create a fresh meal for your family in a flash and as we head into the school season it’s even more important to have those meals. Its easy and time saving to make meals using frozen foods.

Frozen foods are often just as good as non and they’re such an easy way to create something your family will love on those busy weeknights during back to school. Frozen. How Fresh Stays Fresh is a great resource for information!

Cheesy Bacon Tater Tot Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag Ore-Ida Tater Tots
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups of cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 3 chopped pieces of celery
  • 1/2 lb bacon

Tater tots are so much fun and I think they’re such a fun twist on dinner. Simply add your ingredients to your frozen tater tots. Then mix well. I also made cure to cook the bacon ahead of time.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake your casserole for 30 minutes.

I’d like to encourage you to learn more about the benefits of frozen foods and fresh vs frozen.

 

What are some of your favorite frozen meal ideas for busy weeknights?

    This looks scrumptious – I don’t tend to have frozen foods, but this is a great idea – I’m always looking for new ways for broccoli, I’m excited to try this!

    I love the idea of adding broccoli! We sometimes have frozen chicken breasts for a quick weekday meal.

    We call it Tator Tot Hotdish, and we have been eating this for years. I like the way you mix it up, we don’t usually do cheese (but we will now).



  19. Camesha on August 19, 2014 at 8:42 pm

    Very creative recipe. I think that would be fun for the kids to try.

  37. Mary O'Malley on August 19, 2014 at 12:18 am

    I think I might have to make this, but I think I’ll use it with cauliflower and broccoli.



  38. Shannon Gosney on August 18, 2014 at 8:48 pm

    That looks really yummy! I never thought about doing a casserole with tater tots, cheese and broccoli. Thanks for sharing. 🙂



  39. Christina G. on August 18, 2014 at 8:20 pm

    My family loves tator tots, so this recipe will be a big hit. Thanks for sharing!



  40. Jennifer on August 18, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    Tater Tots are seriously a favorite of mine!!! And they are so fun. We usually just eat them along side of burgers instead of french fries



  41. shelly peterson on August 18, 2014 at 2:46 pm

    this looks really good and the kids would love it for sure. I like that it has veggies in it.



  42. Julie Wood on August 18, 2014 at 7:25 am

    This is an easy recipe to make and I like it. I will have to make this for my family. They would love it.



  43. Nicole on August 13, 2014 at 3:52 pm

    What a easy & simple dish to throw together. The kids will eat the broccoli since there is cheese involved. Anyone can make this really since it’s so quick.



  44. mrsshukra on August 11, 2014 at 6:18 pm

    Have not tried making tater tots before, thanks for this recipe!
