  • 2 lb ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 bag of tater tots
  • 2 cups shredded triple cheddar cheese
  • 1 handful shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1/4 cup mayo

  1. Preheat Your Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). This ensures your casserole cooks evenly.
  2. Brown the Beef: In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until it’s no longer pink. Season with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder for that perfect savory flavor.
  3. Add Onions: Stir in the chopped onions and cook until they are translucent. If you’re feeling adventurous, add a can of original Rotel for a spicy kick!
  4. Layering Time: In a greased baking dish, layer half of the tater tots. Then, spread the cooked beef and onion mixture over the tots.
  5. Cheese It Up: Sprinkle two cups of shredded triple cheddar cheese over the beef. This adds a gooey, cheesy deliciousness to your casserole.
  6. Top It Off: Arrange the remaining tater tots on top of the cheese layer.
  7. Bake: Place the dish in the oven and bake for about 45 minutes, or until the tater tots are golden brown and crispy.
  8. Final Touches: Mix mayo and thousand island dressing together. Drizzle this sauce over the baked casserole. Add a handful of shredded iceberg lettuce on top for a fresh, crunchy finish.
  9. Serve and Enjoy: Let the casserole cool for a few minutes, then serve it up! Watch as your family or guests enjoy each savory, cheesy, and crunchy bite.
