Tater Tot® Hot Dish is the official Minnesota state casserole, but you don’t have to be camping in the Land of 10,000 Lakes to enjoy this one. It’s campfire ready, and has the zesty boost of Dean’s French Onion Dip. Make this recipe!
  • 1 32 oz. package of Tater Tots®
  • 1 10 oz. can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 16 oz. carton Dean’s French Onion Dip
  • ½ cup roughly chopped onion
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • cooking oil or spray
  1. Heat a 12-inch covered Dutch oven by placing it on top of 10 gray charcoal briquettes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine Tater Tots®, soup, and Dean’s French Onion Dip.
  3. Once Dutch oven is hot, remove lid and spray inside with cooking oil spray.
  4. Add chopped onions and cook for two minutes, stirring until translucent, but not starting to brown.
  5. Pour mixture into Dutch oven, and sprinkle the top evenly with grated cheddar cheese.
  6. Replace lid, and evenly distribute 14 gray charcoal briquettes on top.
  7. Cook for about 45 minutes until tots are brown and crisp on top. Begin checking for doneness at about 30 minutes.
