  • 1 lb ground beef (lean)
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp dill pickle relish
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour

Cheeseburger Tater Tot Casserole

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Cook beef and onion in a large skillet over medium heat, occasionally stirring until beef is brown. Drain the excess fat.
  • Stir in mustard, ketchup, and relish. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour mixture into a prepared casserole dish in an even layer.
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  • Slowly add in the flour and whisk until smooth. Continue to whisk and cook until golden brown.
  • Arrange the frozen tater tots in an even layer over the roux (you will have extras).
  • Slowly add in the milk, whisking it to be fully incorporated with the roux. Keep whisking until the sauce is bubbly and thick (about 5 minutes). Add salt and pepper.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in 1-1/2 cups of the cheddar cheese until it is fully melted and smooth.
  • Pour the roux evenly over the meat mixture.
  • Bake in the oven for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the rest of the cheese onto the tots. Bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  • Garnish with parsley before serving if you'd like!
