Crockpot Tater Tot Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas

I love cooking anything and everything in the crockpot! Cassseroles are my favorite, as one pot meals save both time and dishes. This here is a dump and go meal that is hearty and tasty, and it includes ground beef, potato and vegetables. This is a balanced meal you can feel good about serving to the family – and yes, kids love it!


I tried something similar to this at a friends house and simply had to get the recipe, after all, I love bacon cheeseburgers and tater tots, too.  I also love my crockpot so it was an obvious match made just for me. This is my modified version that uses sour cream in addition to what I first tried, and I think it makes this casserole so delicious!

The recipe couldn’t be easier – here’s how I made it.

Don’t worry, there’s a recipe with measurements and instructions below.

First, I simmered the ground beef in a skillet with some bacon, chopped onion, and minced garlic. Then, I added 1/2 cup of flour, a cup of milk, a teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce, and a dash of Tabasco.

After that, I took the meat mixture off the heat and stirred in 1 1/2 cups grated cheese and a pack of frozen veggies and sour cream.

Add the frozen veggies to a bowl and top with the meat mixture and stir.

Then I lined the crockpot with nonstick cooking spray and put the tater tots in it. Next, adding my meat mixture with salt, pepper, and butter.  It was so easy, I just plopped them all together and set the crockpot on low for 4 to 5 hours.

I add the ground beef and veggie mixture to the top of this, just spoon it all out of the bowl.

Top this with cheese, and voila. Dinner will be served after you set your crockpot to cook on low or 3 1/2 hours.

I also added more tater tots and cheese to the top. The beauty of this Crockpot Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Recipe is that there is no wrong way to do it if you want to use slightly different ingredients that is fine if you want to use a steak seasoning such as Montreal Steak Seasoning or Tony’s, that is also fine. If you let your crockpot go for 6 or 7 hours they will still turn out delicious. For a quick and easy crockpot recipe for dinner, look no further than this yummy meal idea.
