How to Freeze a Tater Tot Casserole
If you know anything about casseroles, then you know how easy it is to freeze them. I always make a double batch of casseroles. It’s so much easier to pull out when I don’t feel like cooking. Plus, if I want to take a meal over to another mom, I have something ready already. Simply put the casserole in an aluminum pan. I like to double seal the pan so that I don’t have to worry about freezer burn. You can double seal it with saran wrap. Then cover it twice with foil and mark it so you know what it is. You can freeze this casserole before or after you bake it. If you freeze it before you bake it then just thaw it in the fridge the night before and bake as directed. If you bake it first, then just thaw it in the fridge the night before and cover and vent the casserole and bake it until heated through.
What Can I Serve With a Casserole?
The beauty of a casserole is that there is already so much there, you don’t normally have to make sides. However, you can serve tater tot casserole with tons of yummy stuff! If you like toast, pancakes, eggs – you can use all of those adds sides. Sometimes I even like serving bacon. However, most people just want to offer something to drink. Serve coffee, orange juice, milk, chocolate milk, and apple juice!
This casserole makes an excellent breakfast for dinner option too. The next time you aren’t sure of what to make for dinner, whip this yummy meal up! The whole family is going to love it.
