Redneck Tater Tot Casserole

Yum

Ingredients

  • 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?)
Directions

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.
Enjoy!

  1. That looked delicous. I don't like beans but that looked good. It made my mouth water.
