I am sure that Heinz does. Why Heinz? Because Heinz owns Ore Ida, the 
makers of Toter Tots. Try doing a search at http://www.heinz.com to see 
what turns up.

I am new to this group and have been enjoying all the recipes I have
found, thanks to all.  This is a recipe my mother always made and my
family seems to enjoy.  It is quick and very simple.

1 lb. ground meat
1 can Veg-all
Tater Tots
1 can  cream of mushroom soup

Brown the meat, season to your taste, and place in casserole top with
Veg-all, then cover top with Tater Tots.  Mix soup with one can of water
and pour over the rest of the ingreidents.  Bake at 350 for 35 to 40
minutes. 

I have also added a layer of Velveeta Cheese between the vegetables and
the Tater Tots for a different taste.

I have a recipe for using tater tots ...quick and easy, and in my opinion,
quite tasty!
Brown 1 lb hamburger (more or less burger, depending on the number you need to
feed)
season to taste ( I use salt, pepper, garlic)
after meat is browned, drain, put into 9x13 baking pan, top with cheese 
(whatever you have on hand, american and cheddar work well)
on top of cheese, pour 1 can cream of mushroom soup, then top with 1 bag frozen
tater tots, and sprinkle salt&amp; pepper on top.
Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or untill tater tots are brown, and crispy
ENJOY!

Our favorite thing to do with Tater tots isn't really a recipe, more like a
comfort food, but here goes.

We have a small cabin with no electricity, with only a wooden cook stove to
cook on.  We put 1/2 stick butter in the pan (iron skillet), then drop in
the tater tots (small bag).  Salt and pepper generously.  As the cooking
continues, the tater tots fall apart, becoming basically hash browns.  We
keep adding butter if they try to stick to the pan.  Eventually, they become
crisp, delicious and extremely fattening!

However, our favorite!

So who's spinning the dynamo to provide computer power and do you send
your web posts by spider or what?

I just re-read my post and I wasn't very clear in my description;-)  This
cabin is a just a little get-away place which is out of reach of power,
without going to great expense to have it pulled in.  We enjoy going there
to "get away from it all", but, believe me, we definitely DO live in a
regular house the rest of the time, with real electricity and all!!  The
recipe is one of those that we came upon by accident while trying to cook
tater tots on top of the cook stove.  We just happened to really like it,
and have continued to cook them that way.  Incidentally, I haven't been able
to get quite as good results on my regular stovetop at home!!!

I thought you were very clear.  I knew you meant a small cabin for getting away
just like some people go camping but still have a computer back home.

Tater Tot Casserole

Brown 1 # of ground beef, drain fat

Stir in 1 can of Cream of Mushroom Soup (undiluted), pour into a greased 9"x13"
pan

Top with Tater Tots.

Bake uncovered in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 35-45 minutes or
until golden brown (or until desired crunchiness)

Note: you can also add some green beans (canned or precooked frozen ones) to
the ground beef mixture.

Sorry, but I don't know the exact amount of Tater Tots, usually it's a fairly
large bag. Just make sure the ground beef mixture is covered with the tots.

Good with cheese on top.  Also try substituting a can of "manwhich" instead
of soup.  Kind of a sloppy joe version.
