Tater Tot Hot Dish

A Minnesota Classic

Inspired by Molly Yeh's classic tater tot hot dish recipe.


Brown meat (season it!) and remove it from the pan. Add aromatics (onion, celery, garlic, etc.) and seasoning to the pan; sauté until translucent. Add frozen veggies (green beans or peas) and cover the pan until they are warmed through. Add a can of cream of mushroom soup and return the browned meat to the pan. Mix. Transfer to a baking dish. Top with cheese and tater tots. Bake according to the tater tot directions. Garnish with parsley.


1 lb ground beef or other ground meat

1 large onion (yellow or white)

4-5 stalks celery

3 cloves garlic

Your favorite seasonings (I like thyme + sage + red pepper flakes, but herbs de Provence or Italian seasoning blends work well also)

3ish cups frozen veggies (green beans or peas are most common)

1 can cream of mushroom soup

Handful of shredded cheese

1 bag tater tots

A few sprigs of parsley


Large skillet with a lid (I use Staub's All-Day pan)

9x13 baking dish

Heat-safe spatula or wooden spoon
