Turkey & Tater Tot Casserole
Turkey & Tater Tot Casserole

I had planned to make a quiche for tonight, but found out at the store that hubby is not a fan of quiche. Already had the broccoli so had to quickly figure something else out. Hubby suggested a tater tot casserole and rattled off a list of ingredients (i.e., ground beef, cream of mushroom, tater tots, broccoli). I ran w/ the idea, but swapped out the ground beef for ground turkey.

This was yummy, yummy! 😆

Will keep this in the rotation for hubby when the kid isn’t here (he doesn’t like them tots). 😋

I’ve also made this one with green beans instead of broccoli – just sub 1 (15 oz) can low 50% sodium green beans, drained.

You can sub mashed cauliflower or potatoes (about 2 cups) for the tater tots, too.

Turkey & Tater Tot Casserole Recipe

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 4 cups frozen tater tots (enough to cover the top of the casserole)
  • 2 cups of broccoli florets, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 (10.75 oz) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) spray
  1. Preheat oven to 375â—¦ F.
  2. Lightly spray an 8″ x 8″ glass baking dish with EVOO then set aside.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat on stovetop (or in inner pot of Instant Pot on Saut̩ РNormal function).
  4. Add 1 Tbsp avocado oil and heat.
  5. Add diced 1/2 onion and sauté for about 3 mins until softening.
  6. Add 2 cups broccoli florets and continue to saut̩ for about 3 Р4 mins, until onion is translucent then transfer mixture to a plate and keep warm (I put in closed microwave).
  7. Add 1 lb turkey to the same skillet (or in inner pot of Instant Pot), and cook over medium-high heat (or on Saut̩ РNormal function in Instant Pot) Рmaking sure to break up as you go Рuntil fully cooked.
  8. Add 1 tsp minced garlic and sauté, stirring frequently, for an additional 30 secs.
  9. Stir in 1/4 tsp black pepper.
  10. Transfer turkey mixture to baking dish and spread evenly across bottom of dish.
  11. Top with 1 – 10.75 oz can cream of mushroom soup, spreading as evenly as possible without *stirring* in.
  12. Top with broccoli mixture, as evenly spaced as possible.
  13. Sprinkle evenly with 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese.
  14. Finally, top with 4 cups frozen tater tots. I like to press my tots in just a bit so that they’ll be good and stuck to the cheese when finished…
  15. Bake for 35 – 45 mins, until tots are golden brown and cheese is melted. The baking time mostly depends on the amount of tots you use / More tots = more time. Also, when making with green beans, it takes less baking time than with broccoli.
