    So delicious! Had to use hash rounds as store was out of tater tots, improved it imo. As per others, added more garlic onion powder and cheese. Think I'll add more cream of broccoli soup next time for our preference. Recipe came out perfect and it took no time to put together. Husband ate half the pan in one sitting. Definetly on permanent rotation.

    Not sure what everyone is raving about. This was horrible. What an embarrassment. Made it according to the recipe. Filed the recipe and food in the trash.

    Don't mind the haters I would rather use measuring cups than a scale.

    (4 cups frozen Tater Tots) For God's sake use proper weights and measurements!! Kitchen scales are cheap.

    This is my new favorite casserole recipe. Made it exactly like the recipe states and it was tasty and reheated beautifully for leftovers. I love the tator tots in the bottom of the pan, you get more potato flavor and they don't get soggy
