Bougie Girl In The Kitchen: Tater Tot Casserole

I spent last Saturday night playing board games with a big group of friends. I love our Game Nights because it is a chance for all of us to unwind and have fun. In addition, there are always seems to be some yummy food on hand.

This time was no exception.I feasted on a bunch of different culinary offerings including  multi-layered dip, red velvet dessert, and chocolate cookies just to name a few.  What can I say? My friends really know how to bring their "A" game to the food table.

Not wanting to be outdone, I brought a tater tot casserole. Just what's in a tater tot casserole? I am glad that you asked. Basically, I marinated tater tots in lime juice, extra virgin olive oil and black pepper.

 I baked them per the directions on the bag. While they were baking, I sauteed Baby Bella mushrooms, Spanish onions, with a spritz of lemon juice in a  pan  on the stovetop.

After the tater tots were finished, I placed them into a  resealable plastic container and mixed in the mushrooms and onions. I stirred a handful of mozzarella cheese into the plastic container.

The tater tots were definitely a hit at the party!  Guests commented  favorably on both the crispiness and flavor of the tater tots. I was lucky to get scoop of them before they were gobbled up.


  1. Those are some amazing tots! Can't wait for the next game night!

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words. I am planning on doing an Asian inspired version of the tots. I am going to marinate the tots in honey, lime, and ginger.
