So I fully admit I am not a tater tot casserole aficionado. My name is Jent and I did not grow up eating tater tot casserole. This is a whole new world to me that I am jumping head first into.

But the second I saw the recipe for Frisco Tater Tot Casserole over on These Old Cookbooks I knew I needed a Big Mac version!

I have loved Big Macs my entire life. While other little kids loved Happy Meals I was all “I need a Big Mac”!

Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun!

In this case though, tater tots instead of a bun! But I didn’t forget the sesame seeds!

Big Mac Tater Tot Casserole

My husband had a t-shirt that had “two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun” on it when he was a kid. And I don’t think I’ve ever been more jealous of anything in my life. I’ve searched Amazon and eBay for years to no avail.

Tips:

  • You can totally make the special sauce up ahead of time, it actually makes it more flavorful because all the ingredients get to know each other.
  • I put the tater tots on top of this hotdish so that they are crispy. In my other tater tot casserole I’ve put them on the bottom, they tend to turn out more like mashed potatoes that way.
  • You can now find fast-food style pickles in the grocery store – I don’t think they taste any different but it’s fun!
