  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch casserole dish.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine tater tots, soup, onion, sour cream, cheese, garlic powder, seasoning salt and softened butter; mix well. Transfer to casserole dish. In a medium bowl combine cereal and melted butter; spread over casserole. Sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese (use more or less according to your taste) and paprika.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until browned. (Note: It's a good idea to put a cookie sheet under the casserole dish, in case it bubbles over while cooking.)

This recipe is delicious, but a little warning: It is extremely GREASY. I recommend cutting down on the butter by about half. Also, I have made it both with and without the cornflakes on top, and my family likes it better without. Leaving out the flakes will eliminate even more of the unwanted butter. Another thing I like to do with this recipe is to grease the casserole dish, put the tater tots on the bottom and top it with the rest of the ingredients, reserving some of the cheddar chz for the very top.

I did not care for this recipe. I wasn't sure what I was thinking putting 1/2 cup Butter into one dish. Save the butter for the top only, 1/2 the amount of it. The top, I will say, is absolutely devine. Needs some meat as well: I think chopped uncured Cherrywood Bacon!

This casserole is so much tastier than the traditional tater tot casserole! I added a pound of cooked hamburger, but otherwise followed the recipe. Definitely a great "cold-day" dinner!

This was really good. However, I made a few changes. I didn't use any butter at all, I used Mozzerella cheese instead of cheddar because it's all I had, and Durkee onions on top because I didn't have any Cornflakes. It was still delicious and didn't miss the butter at all.

Great recipe. I'll definetely use for dinner guests -- makes a lot and is easy to do ahead. But, there was absolutely no need for 1/2 cup butter in the recipe AND on top of the recipe! In fact, it was way too rich with the butter. Next time I won't put any in and about 1/2 on top. But there will definetely be a next time!

This was absolutely delicious. I completely omitted the butter and used cream of mushroom soap instead of chicken b/c of my own personal preference. I've always loved tater tot cass., but my husband wasn't a huge fan. He loves this version though!!

This recipe was yummy! My kids really enjoyed it, and so did I and my husband. I made a few changes though. I didn't have cornflakes so I used regular saltine crackers and poured the melted butter over them. Also, I used frozen tator tots (for lack of time to thaw them), and I cooked it for about 1 hr. 15 minutes. I covered it with foil for the entire time except about 15-20 minutes. When I uncovered, I watched until the cracker were nicely browned them removed it from the oven. The sour cream makes it very rich, so you could probably adjust the amount to your liking. This would be very good if you added chopped ham, or for breakfast added crumbled sausage. Yummy!

I made this for dinner tonight because I had a few extra children for dinner. It was Wonderful!! I added a layer of hamburger on the bottom, and ate it as a dinner!!
