Indulge in a mouth-watering fusion of your favorite fast-food burger and a comforting classic casserole. This Big Mac-inspired Tater Tot Delight brings the iconic flavors of the famed burger into a dish perfect for dinner parties or cozy family meals.


1 lb ground beef

1 small onion, finely chopped

Salt and pepper, to taste

2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

1 bag of tater tots (32 oz)

1 cup lettuce, shredded

1/2 cup pickles, finely chopped

2 tablespoons sesame seeds (optional for garnish)

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons ketchup

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

1 teaspoon white vinegar

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon paprika


Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef and onion until the meat is browned and the onions are translucent. Season with salt and pepper.

While the beef cooks, in a separate bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, vinegar, sugar, and paprika to create the special sauce. Set aside.

Once the beef and onion mixture is ready, drain any excess fat and spread it evenly at the bottom of a casserole dish.

Layer half of the shredded cheddar cheese over the beef.

Next, arrange the tater tots on top of the cheese in a single layer.

Drizzle your special sauce over the tater tots.

Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese on top.

Place the casserole in the oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the tater tots turn golden brown and crispy.

Once baked, remove from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes.

Before serving, garnish with shredded lettuce, chopped pickles, and if you like, sprinkle some sesame seeds to mimic the classic Big Mac bun.

Serve warm and enjoy the delightful fusion of flavors!
