Ham & Tater Tot Casserole Recipe

Have leftover ham? This Ham & Tater Tot Casserole Recipe makes a great dinner for the whole family!

Ham & Tater Tot Casserole

Anytime we have ham, this Ham & Tater Tot Casserole Recipe comes in handy for the leftovers! The entire family loves this easy meal that takes only a few minutes to throw together.

I stopped making it for a little while because I really am not a huge fan of canned cream of something soup, but since I started making my own Cream of Chicken Soup Substitute this is even better!

How to Make Ham & Tater Tot Casserole

Ham, cheese, & Tater tots in bowl

In a bowl mix together your diced ham, onions (optional), soup, 1/2 of your tater tots, and half of the cheese.

Tater Tot Casserole Before Baking

Place the mix in a casserole dish and top with the additional tater tots and cheese.

Gluten Free Tater Tot Casserole freshly baked

Bake at 350 for about 1 hour. That is it! Super simple.

Gluten Free

Making this recipe gluten free is very easy. Just make sure your tater tots are gluten free, and use a can of gluten free cream of chicken soup. You can also make your own cream of chicken soup substitute gluten free (which is even better in my opinion.)

Easy Mix Ins

Want to jazz this recipe up? Toss in some veggies to the mix. We love to add onions, peppers, a bag of frozen mixed veggies. Really the soup and the cheese do a great job of flavoring this entire dish…veggies too!

This does make a big casserole! Since one 13×9 casserole dish can serve 8, I have been known to half it. You can also split it into 2 smaller casserole dishes and freeze one for another night.

Serve this with a simple side salad or steamed veggies for a complete meal.
