Big Mac Tater Tot Casserole

Big Mac Tater Tot Casserole is an easy dinner recipe that starts out with a base of ground beef, onions and dill pickles, all tossed in a copycat Big Mac sauce, and then topped with cheddar cheese and tater tots.

PREP TIME: 20 minutes

COOK TIME: 45 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 5 minutes

YIELD: 6 servings


2 pounds Lean Ground Beef

1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter

1 cup Thousand Island Dressing

1/4 cup Mayonnaise

1 cup diced Yellow Onion

1 cup diced Dill Pickle

1 tablespoon Onion Powder

1 tablespoon Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon Salt

1 teaspoon Ground Pepper

2 cups Kraft Shredded Triple Cheddar Cheese Blend

24 ounces Frozen Tater Tots (I used sweet potato tater tots)

Non-Stick Cooking Spray


1 cup shredded Iceberg Lettuce

1/4 cup Thousand Island Dressing


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Dump ground beef and diced onion into a large saute pan over medium-high heat along with 1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter.

3. Crumble the ground beef well as it cooks.

4. Once the ground beef is fully cooked, remove the pan from the heat and drain the excess grease.

5. Add the Thousand Island dressing, mayonnaise, diced dill pickle, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to the pan with the beef.

6. Stir until all of the ingredients are fully combined.

7. Dump the ground beef mixture into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish and spread it out evenly.

8. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the beef.

9. Place the tater tots in a single layer on top of the cheese.

10. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake the casserole until the tater tots are golden brown, 40-45 minutes.

11. Remove the casserole from the oven and sprinkle the shredded lettuce on top.

12. Drizzle the Thousand Island dressing over the lettuce.

13. Serve and enjoy!
