Tater Tot Casserole Recipe!

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)

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.

      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.

      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it. Thank You,
