What You’ll Need To Make This Casserole

TATER TOTS – We like to use the 365 Everyday Value Tater Puffs brand. At Trader Joe’s look for ‘Trader Potato Tots’, they’re also very good.

TURKEY MEATBALLS – Use frozen meatballs like these. Or quickly make your own with this amazing, gluten-free Turkey Meatball Recipe.

ALFREDO SAUCE – Use this easy classic, homemade Alfredo sauce recipe. Or if you’re pressed for time, use this storebought Alfredo Sauce.

CHEESE – For this dish, use a sharp Cheddar cheese like this one and combine it with whole milk Mozzarella cheese.
Adding Mozzarella to the casserole dishes adds an extra layer of flavor. And it’s also a cheese that melts beautifully resulting in a great looking casserole dish

Tips for making This Tater Tot Casserole Recipe

TIME-SAVING TIPS – Using storebought turkey meatballs and storebought Alfredo sauce will cut down on prep time.
But if you are making homemade turkey meatballs be sure to try this (gluten-free) turkey meatball recipe! And this delicious Alfredo Sauce recipe.

CHEESE – Shred the cheese yourself! You’ll save money and get better flavor! A package of store-bought shredded cheese usually contains fillers. For better flavor and texture, buy your cheese in a block and grate it yourself.

How To Store this Tater Tot Casserole Dish?

You can easily keep the casserole in the fridge for 3-4 days. I like this casserole dish because it comes with a lid which makes it a breeze to store in the fridge. To reheat the casserole simply pop it in the microwave for a couple of minutes.
