This is probably the unhealthiest thing I have ever made. And you know what? My family LOVED it. SIGH. I used McCormick Bac’n Pieces for the bacon bits (they are vegan!) and I used Beyond Beef crumbles in place of the ground beef. I kind of hate that my family loved it, since this dish is nothing but chemicals and additives, but, hey, what can you do?
Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Casserole
1-1/2 pounds ground beef (I used Beyond Beef crumbles)
1 (3-oz) package real bacon bits
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 (32-oz) package frozen tater tots
1 (10.75-oz) can condensed cheddar cheese soup
16-oz sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9×13-inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
Cook ground beef in a large skillet until no longer pink. Drain fat.
In a large bowl, combine cooked beef, bacon bits, cheddar cheese, tater tots, cheese soup and sour cream. Mix until throughly combined.
Spread mixture into prepared pan.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until bubbly.
