Deer Tater Tot Casserole


  • 1 lb ground deer burger
  • 1 onion (optional)
  • 1 green bell pepper (optional)
  • 1 pack tater tots – 32 oz bag
  • 1 10.75 oz can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • dash of salt and pepper to taste (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Fry the deer burger, breaking it up as it cooks. If you are going to use an onion and green bell pepper, add them once the burger is browned and drained of all excess fats. Let it fry until the peppers and onions are tender. This usually takes no more than 15 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, add the cream of mushroom soup, milk, salt, and pepper, and mix it well. Pour it in with the deer burger, onions, and peppers and mix well.
  3. Pour the deer mixture in a 9″ x 13″ casserole dish and position the tater tots on top of the deer mixture layer. Sprinkle 1 cup of cheese on top and pop it in the oven.
  4. After 25 minutes, take the Deer Tater Tot Casserole out of the oven and sprinkle it with another cup of cheese and put it back in the oven for another 15 minutes.
