Redneck Tater Tot Casserole



  • 28 oz - Baked or Pork & Beans
  • 6-8 - Hot Dogs (all depends on how many hot dogs you like, 6 was enough for me.
  • 4 Cups - Tater Tots (or enough to cover 9 x 13 casserole dish)
  • 2 Cups - Shredded Cheddar Cheese (or more, can you ever have enough cheese?)

I've found when you make this casserole the traditional way the tater tots tend to turn to mush.  So I do my Redneck Casserole a little different than most people.  I pre-bake my tater tots and pre-heat the bean and hot dog mixture before baking.  This gives you nice crispy tater tots when it's all done versus mashed potato tots!

  • Pre-bake the tater tots in a pre-heated 450º for 10 - 12 minutes.  You don't want to fully cook them.
  • Cut your desired amount of hot dogs into bite size pieces and combine with the beans.
  • Heat to a light simmer on the stove top or in the microwave.
  • Add the heated beans to a 9 x 13 casserole dish.
  • Layer the beans with the pre-baked tater tots.
  • Bake in a pre-heated 450º oven for 8-10 more minutes or until it's bubbly and the tater tots are golden brown.
  • Top with cheddar cheese and place it back into the oven for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
