As a staple casserole ingredient, it is hard to imagine life without the tater tot. They have a wonderful crunch and have the ability to make any casserole taste even more delicious. That's why it is hard to imagine that tater tots were originally invented to prevent the waste of potatoes.

Tired of the wasted potato slivers that were the result of making French fries, the founders of Ore-Ida created a product to make the most of these potato slivers. In 1953, the Tater Tot was invented by mashing up the potato slivers, adding a bit of seasoning and flour, and frying the potato mixture. Tater Tots were first available in stores in 1956. Little did the Ore-Ida founders know that tater tots would become one of their most popular products!

It is difficult to imagine what life would be like without the wonderful tater tot. Luckily we don't have to!

Tater tots and cheese in a casserole would be nirvana for my hubby. I think tater tots are his favorite snack food. If we made this for dinner I think he would just bliss out.

This casserole looks phenomenal, but I might try the recipe without the corn.

This looks delicious and easy to make! Casseroles are great for those comfort food cravings and you can bring this to any potluck.

I'm always looking for new casserole recipes for dinner, and this one is definitely one I want to try out!

I've really wanted to try a tater tot casserole... maybe this will be my first!

Who cares what it looks like- it sounds delicious! Also gives me an idea of what to do with the lone can of cream of mushroom soup that I have in my pantry.

Such a great and filling meal! I'll be making this again and again.

I think this IS very pretty! I love how the tater tots are arranged on top.

It was delicious but I used cream of celery instead of cream of mushroom

I Love this meal. My grand mother use to make a similar recipe when we were growing up and was always a huge hit!
