If you are trying to eat less beef, try this Tater Tot Casserole made with ground turkey. No worries that it would be bland. I took care of that problem.
One of my family’s favorite casserole is my TATER TOT VEGETABLE CASSEROLE. This time, I decided to make my tater tot casserole a little healthier using ground turkey instead of beef.
The Biggest Loser put the ground turkey on the map. They encouraged me to use it instead of ground beef. I have used it to make ground Turkey Taco Lettuce Leaves and Turkey Chili, which both turned out incredibly delicious. One thing I learned from using ground turkey in these recipes is to increase the seasoning.
Ground Turkey needs lots of seasonings.
To me, ground turkey may be healthier, but it is bland. I love my food flavorful and well seasoned. Ground turkey needs more seasoning than ground beef, so I added extra garlic, pepper, and Worcestershire. It turned out incredibly tasty. Seriously, you will never guess I used ground turkey instead of beef in this tater tot casserole.
This Tator Tot Casserole is quick and easy to make.
I simply brown the ground turkey and add a can of cream of celery and cream of mushroom soup. Next, I insert the seasonings and place the mixture in a 9 x 13 casserole dish. I topped the ground turkey with lots of cheese and then a layer of tater tots. It is a quick and easy recipe your family will love. It is also a little more healthy using ground turkey instead of ground beef.
