The Best Ever Tatertot Casserole Recipe!

When you think of tatertot casserole, you might think of the casserole made with hamburger and cream of mushroom. But this is different, this is more like hash brown casserole, minus the eggs. This is a dinner casserole, not a breakfast casserole and I decided to change things up because I thought my kids would like it better than the mushroom version…and they did!

Instead of cream of mushroom, this calls for cream of chicken and instead of hamburger, I use ham because I think it pairs better with cream of chicken than hamburger. This is incredibly easy to make and I would say counts as another comfort food in my mom book of recipes that my family loves.

Prep is really simple if you buy the ingredients like the ham pre-chopped. The only chopping you’ll do is with the green onions, or regular white onions if you like a really oniony taste like I do. I love onions, so I like using both!

And if you are worried about onions with your kiddos, they’ll hardly notice them. They’ll just be into all that cheese and of course tatertots!

  1. Delicious! There’s a vegetarian version of this that I love to fix, but it has been ages and ages since I have fixed it. I think I will fix some this weekend. 🙂


  2. As much as I love a good casserole, I sadly don’t get to make them very often any more. My husband and I are both trying to watch what we eat. However, that looks out of this world! I will definitely make it the next time we splurge! 🙂

    1. I can understand that. I’m trying to incorporate more fish into our diets. So twice a week we have salmon or tillapia, and I need to knix a lot of the sausage we cook up weekly, but yeah the tatertot dish is definitely a splurge kind of meal.
