I love cooking anything in the crockpot, why I had never thought of making a Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Casserole in the crockpot is beyond me. I saw a recipe for crockpot Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Casserole on Youtube and had to try it, after all, I love bacon cheeseburgers with tater tots and I also love my crockpot so it was an obvious match made in Heaven for me. The recipe couldn’t be easier, I just pre-cooked the hamburger meat in a skillet with some bacon, diced onion, and minced garlic. Then I added a half a cup of flour, a cup of milk, a teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce, and a dash of Tabasco. I then removed the meat mixture from the heat and stirred in one and one-half cups grated cheese and a pack of frozen veggies and sour cream.
Then I lined the crockpot with cooking spray and put the tater tots in the crockpot, then added 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 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.
