"Tater-tot casserole in ten minutes! Great for those of us who need dinner in a pinch. And whose children dislike balanced meals! Use any flavor of condensed soup you have on hand, as long as it is cream of something."

Hi all, I just watnted to note that some of my suggestions were deleted by allrecipes when they posted this. I make this using a round dish not a square one. This makes a difference in how evenly it cooks. I have used the stack cooker by tupperware and the largest round stainshield by rubbermaid. I'll post more of my tips as I find them.
First off, let me say
I'm a college student who misses cooking, but my dorm only has a microwave and we're not allowed heating elements, so my opportunities are limited. I just tried this recipe and I'm amazed at how good it is. I didn't have any trouble heating it; I used a smaller casserole dish and only used half a bag of tater tots, and it heated fairly thoroughly, though I think next time I'll defrost the tots for longer. Also, when I stirred the mixture into the tots, my broke up a lot of them with my spoon and I think that made it heat more thoroughly.
All in all, great recipe. I'll be making this a lot in the next few years !
My family and I really liked this! I also had difficulty w/ heating, but that didn't stop me from giving it 5 stars. It's a great quick meal and has many possibilities! Thanks for the great recipe!
I made this dish the other night and it was difficult to get it to heat all the way through (it may have been my microwave.) I just scooped some out onto a plate and heated it up. It was delicious! Definitely a keeper!
this dish is awesome thank you, thank you thank you...great for summer nights when you don't want to heat up the house.
This was easy and pretty tasty. I had some ingredients to use up so I did shredded hashbrowns and velveeta instead of tater tots and cheddar, and doubled the sour cream. I didn't have cr chx with herbs, so I added pepper, basil, oregano, garlic salt, and minced onion to plain cr chx soup. With the cheese and ham I probably could have done garlic powder--it got a little salty. Plan on taking more like 20 min to cook with stirring about every 5 min.
This recipe is definately cheesy! I nuked it in a round dish as mentioned by the author, it helped a bit, but there were still cool pockets. The tater tots started to break down when stirring it all together. I believe frozen hash browns would work just as well.
So far so good, but I began trying to fit a 9 x 13 in a microwave that doesn't suit it. Thanks.
