this is officially my new favorite recipe! i did make a few changes to improve it slightly in my book. i used extra crispy tater tots (instead of regular tots), used fat free knudsens brand sour cream and 98% fat free cream of chicken soup. i used sharp cheddar and doubled the recommended amount (i love cheese!). i also bought the larger can of french fried onions and mixed 1/2 in with the soup, sc, and cheese mixture. once the mixture is spread over the tots, i sprinkled with garlic powder and finished it off with the last of the ff onions. super easy and heats up great for leftovers! yummmm....

I made the recipe "as is" which is why I only give it 3 stars. It was just okay... a little bland, and while I don't like mushrooms, I love greenbean casserole at the holidays so I thought I would like this too. It just didn't do it for me. I think I will try this again but make it "mexican" style by substituting the mushroom soup with cheese soup and adding jalapenos, black beans and corn. And probably use only half a can of onions... a whole can was just too much.****UPDATE**** OMIGOSH, tatertot casserole is sooooo good with the substitutions I made. I didn't add black beans, but I did use cheddar cheese soup mixed with corn, jalapenos, half the amount of sour cream and cheese, and some taco seasoning. It was soo delish. Also, I sprinkled crushed tortilla chips instead of frenches onions and sprinkled more cheese on top. This is a great alternative to those who don't really like mushrooms!!

This will replace my tater-tot casserole recipe after adding a few things to the original recipe. Since it's not a main dish in this household if there's no meat, I added a pound of hambuger browned with some onions. I mixed in a can of green beans, cut the sour cream in half, and added some garlic powder, salt, and pepper. I also used 2 cups of sharp cheddar instead of just one. I was a little skeptical of putting the tater-tots on the bottom, but they crisped up nicely. My friend and her mom who were over for dinner couldn't stop eating it! Yum!

Very easy, and surprisingly good. When I put a layer of frozen tater tots on the bottom of the pan, and this gloopy mess that was supposed to turn into "sauce" on the top, I had my doubts. I wasn't sure it would really turn into a casserole. But it came out great. Tasty, very filling, and it makes a LOT. Would be a great dish for feeding a large group. I followed the recipe, but added an extra cup of cheese to the sauce mixture. I used non-fat sour cream. I also added some chopped red bell pepper, some cooked and chopped up sausage, (veggie sausage that is - 1 pkg MorningStar Farms brand veggie sausage patties,)and one bag frozen broccoli florets. I was very good, and the FF onions, (which I almost omitted, since they don't seem much like a real food item to me) actually add some great texture and flavor.

This casserole if a family favorite! I add a can of peas, a small onion, and 1 pound of cooked hamburger and use a little more sour cream and a little milk so it's not so thick. FABOULOUS! I make it a couple times a month by request

NOTE: My rating is based on the modifications I made as follows: 1) I didn't have the fried onions so I used about a cup of raw onion diced and added it to the sour cream/soup/cheese mixture. 2) I ended up almost doubling the cheese and put some of it on top of the casserole before baking it. 3) I let it bake an extra 20 minutes This recipe was better tasting to me than the traditional cheesey potatoes we make using southern style hash browns. I was surprised at this and at how the tater tots break apart into smaller pieces so that the cheese/soup/sour cream mixture blends in throughout the casserole.

VERY teenage friendly! I used cream of chicken soup instead and it was awesome!! My husband & I liked it but it was my 3 teens that gobbled this down. The ONLY problem I had was not "oiling" my casserole dish down as suggested and I used Pam spray instead. Next time I'll use cooking oil.

Super easy & surprisingly very good! The tator tots/rounds crisp up nicely & the sauce is very creamy. I would definitely double the amount of cheese though!
