I found this easy-to-prepare dish to be a scrumptious choice for Chanukah party fare! The combination of ingredients offers flavorful and satisfying, cheesy mouthfuls of potato heaven! Warning: hard to resist a second portion!!
Cheesy Tater-Tots Casserole
- Cook & Prep: 3 h
- Serving: 12
Prepare the Sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large frying pan, saute onions until golden. Add celery and mushrooms and continue to saute until vegetables are softened.
Stir in flour and mix until combined. Add water, onion soup mix and salt, to taste, stirring until mixture thickens.
Sprinkle in half a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and continue to stir until cheese is melted. Remove from heat.
Assemble and Bake
Place frozen tater tots in a 9x13-inch baking pan. Pour vegetable sauce over tater tots and sprinkle remaining shredded cheese over all.
Bake uncovered, for 35-40 minutes, or until mixture bubbles. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
If tater-tots are unavailable, you can use fresh or frozen potato latkes for a delicious treat.
