Phat’s Cast Iron Tater Tot Hot Dish

Tater Tot Hot Dish Weve Tried It

Phat’s Cast Iron Tater Tot Hot Dish: I always see the same old tater tot hot dishes so I wanted to switch things up a bit. Why not do it all in one pan? So I turned to my cast iron skillet and came up with this really simple idea. More meat than veggies, more cheese! The way I like it.


  • 1.5 lb ground beef
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 12 oz frozen vegetables(mixed veggies with corn/peas/carrots)
  • 16 oz frozen tater tots(or whatever fits in cast iron)
  • 1 10.5 oz can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 10.5 oz can cream of mushroom garlic soup
  • Milk
  • Shredded cheddar cheese (about 2 cups)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Crunchy cheddar cheese French fried onions
  • Teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce


  • In a cast iron pan, brown the onion (chopped). Then add beef and brown. Salt and pepper accordingly. Drain the fat.

  • Combine the two cans of soup, the frozen veggies (don’t need to be thawed), add a couple splashes of milk (probably about 1/4 to 1/2 cup) and the Worcestershire sauce to the cast iron pan of beef/onion mix.
