This dish is a fun, easy way to get your kids to eat their hot dogs and tater tots! It’s also a great dish to bring to potlucks or picnics.

This cheesy hot dog tater tot casserole is the perfect comfort food for a chilly winter night. It’s easy to make, and it’s sure to please the whole family. Plus, it’s a great way to use up any hot dogs that you might have leftover from your summer BBQs.

This recipe is the perfect comfort food for a rainy day. It’s easy to make and can be on the table in under an hour. Plus, it’s a great way to use up hot dogs that have been sitting in the fridge for a few days.

To make this casserole, start by cooking the tater tots according to their package directions. While they’re baking, cook the hot dogs in a skillet over medium heat until they’re browned and slightly crisp. Once the tots are done, mix them with the hot dogs and cheese in a large bowl.

Then, transfer the mixture to a greased casserole dish and bake it at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings, such as ketchup, mustard, or pickles. Enjoy!

Tips:  

This casserole is so easy to make and only requires a few ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. I like to use hot dogs because they’re already cooked and don’t require any additional prep, but you could also use cooked sausage or ground beef.

To make this casserole extra cheesy, I like to use a combination of shredded cheddar cheese and Velveeta. You could also use just one or the other, depending on what you have on hand.

I usually serve this casserole with a side of ketchup for dipping, but it would also be good with mustard or BBQ sauce.

Notes:

This recipe is a crowd pleaser! It’s easy to make and can be tailored to your liking. I like to add extra cheese and spices to my tater tot casserole, but you can keep it simple with just ketchup and mustard.

This dish is also great for leftovers – just reheat and enjoy!

Conclusion & Recipe:

This casserole is the perfect blend of savory and sweet, and it’s sure to please everyone at your table. The tater tots are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and the hot dogs are nice and juicy. The cheese sauce is rich and creamy, and it ties everything together perfectly. This dish is best served hot out of the oven, so be sure to enjoy it while it’s fresh.
