Cheesy Garlic Tater Tot Casserole Recipe Is a Family Pleaser by Donna John

Cheesy Garlic Tater Tot Casserole Recipe Is a Family Pleaser

If you have someone in the family who loves tater tots, cheese and garlic, this is the casserole recipe for them. With frozen tater tots, cream, cheddar, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, canned cheddar cheese soup and seasonings, it is full of flavor and a hearty, satisfying dinner.

The original garlic tater tot casserole recipe called for 1 tablespoon of onion powder and garlic powder, which to me was just too much. This reworked casserole recipe is right on the money for my family, but you can use as much or as little seasoning as you like. 

Serve this easy tater tot casserole recipe with a fresh vegetable or salad for a vegetarian main dish or as a side dish with chicken, beef, pork or lamb. (And maybe a bowl of breath mints!)

I served this for Easter. Cheese overload! But that's not a bad thing. Loved that you could taste the garlic in it. My mom didn't mind the 1 tablespoon each of garlic and onion powder, but I really think that much was just too much, and overwhelmed the recipe.

Does anyone know how to make this Gluten Free? It's the canned soup that I need to replace.
