Tater Tot Casserole Recipe!
0

5 posts in this topic

Yeah yeah yeah....whole foods, fruits and veggies I know. HA HA! But this one is a quick meal right before we head out to a softball game. Plus my meat and potatoes husband loves it and my kids eat it up. I can't say that for all my meals. : )

Bag of frozen tater tots (double check to make sure gluten-free)

1 pound lean ground beef

1/2 chopped onion (I always buy frozen chopped onion because it's easier and no waste!)

1 can Progresso Creamy Mushroom soup

salt and pepper or seasoning salt

2 cups shredded cheese

crushed potato chips(recipe called for sour cream and onion but I only had Lay's Stax on hand)

Preheat oven to 400. Layer all the tater tots in the bottom of a large casserole dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper or seasoning salt. Cook meat and onion and drain. Add whole can of Progresso Cream of Mushroom soup. Add cheese a little bit at a time until all mixed in. Pour this over the tater tots. Crumble up the potato chips and put on top. Cook 30-45 minutes or until the chips are lightly browned. Check to make sure the tots are done and serve! Mine was done in 30 min but I used the tater rounds instead of the larger tots. It might take the reg. tots longer. Enjoy!

I have been making tater-tot casserole for many many years. Before I even got sick. Now I do a gluten free version but I use cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soup, but no cheese or chips. Kids loved it before and love the new gluten free version also.

What brand of cream of mushroom soup and cream of chicken do you use now? I never can find any that's gluten-free. Why does Campbell's have to put in wheat? Uggg.

I can not have dairy so I had to come up with another version. And we usually buy Spud Puppies because they are organic. I do mix an onion in with the ground beef and always some canned green beans because my daughter loves those. Sometimes I would put corn in there too. And often some cooked chopped celery. Instead of using a cream soup, I used either come ketchup or tomato sauce but that didn't go over so well. Then I tried beef gravy. Yum!

Mmmm, I love tater tot casserole!

We don't use canned soup any more, we make a quick cream sauce with chicken broth and rice flour.

We also use chicken instead of ground beef, lots of green onions, some canned green chiles and pepper jack cheese.

Our recipe takes cream cheese and some thyme, so it's a little different then this one, but you sure can't go wrong with tater tots (and I say this even though we are a "whole food" kind of family). B)

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
