potato casserole 1-13-10 (5)

The original recipe for this dish is a family favorite. Mostly because its incredibly easy and secondly because we never find anyone who won’t eat it or doesn’t like it. Plus, the original recipe is very inexpensive. So for most of my young life, this staple dish was taken to church potlucks and big get-togethers. The problem with all this? The recipe is three ingredients; 1 bag of tator tots, 1 quart container of sour cream, and 1 can of mushroom soup. Well, i don’t know about you, if I look at that (knowing I can’t eat dairy), all I see is tator tots… not much of a casserole anymore! :D

My mother mentioned it the other day by way of a challenge. And as usual I couldn’t resist that. So here is my attempt at my family’s Potato Casserole. And I have to say (with the utmost respect for my mother of course…); mine is SO MUCH BETTER!     ( hehe)

Dairy Free Potato Casserole:


1 1/2 cups Mushroom Soup (Dairy free) – click link for recipe
1 cup Sour Cream (Dairy free) – click link for recipe
1 32 oz bag of tator tots


Preheat oven to 350 degree’s.

Heat the tator tots in the microwave for 12 minutes or until they are tender and ‘steamy’. (HA! Sorry, please excuse my ever lacking lingo…) Carefully dump it out into a mixing bowl and mix up the tator tots until they are completely mashed. Mix in the mushroom soup and sour cream. Spray a 9×13 pan and spread the mix into the pan. Smooth out the top with a spatula or big spoon.

Bake for approximately 40 minutes.

You can serve it immediately but it also tastes great re-heated!

  1. oh looks really good. Thank you for sharing. I have a lot of people ask me about CF sour cream and now I know where to send them!

    This sounds delicious. I know my family would love it. We’re not dairy free so I would use the regular versions of the ingredients and maybe add some cheese. Thanks for participating in “What can I eat that’s gluten free?”

    Looks simple and delicious, everything a casserole ought to be.

    This looks awesome! When I first went GF I thought I’d read that tater tots weren’t GF, but then after some research I happily realized that they were!! :)

    OH MY!! My kids love tater tots, call them container tots. This would be sucked down post haste. I’ll have to look up your soup recipe. No wthat we don’t do canned soup, I have been stumped for casseroles. Thanks so much for joining in Just Another Meatless Monday.

    Sorry it took so long to get here, I was sick yesterday and today. Just starting to feel better!

    See you next week I hope! Love to have you along for the ride.

    Have you ever put dairy free cheese in it or is the soup, sour cream and hash browns usually what you do? I’ve got a little one who is allergic to dairy and I’m trying to make a traditional cheesy potato recipe sans dairy :)

    • Hi Leslie – thanks for the question! I’ve never used any form of non-dairy cheese in this. However, back when I used to eat everything, my mom made this with mushroom soup, sour cream, and also shredded cheese for a richer taste. (And quiet possibly clogged arteries, but that’s another bag of worms ;)) I like it just fine without any sort of cheese, but I’m positive it would only add to the dish’s awesomeness. Definitely give it a try! :D ~Aubree
