Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 40 mins
Total: 1 hr


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • cup yellow onion, or sweet onion, diced
  • cup HEINZ ketchup
  • 2 tbsp HEINZ prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp HEINZ dill pickle relish
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • cup milk
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 cup KRAFT Triple Cheddar Natural Shredded Cheese, divided use
  • 32 oz ORE-IDA® TATER TOTS® Potatoes


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a casserole dish, or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef and onion stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain.
  3. Stir in ketchup, mustard and relish. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spoon mixture into prepared casserole dish and smooth into an even layer.
  4. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter completely. Slowly whisk in the flour until smooth. Continue to whisk while cooking the roux until it is golden brown.
  5. Slowly whisk in the milk, taking care to fully incorporate it with the roux. Keep whisking until the sauce is thick and bubbling; about 5 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper.
  6. Remove the pan from heat and whisk in 1½ cups of cheese until it is completely melted and the sauce is smooth.

  7. Evenly pour the sauce over the meat mixture.
  8. Arrange the frozen ORE-IDA® TATER TOTS® potatoes in an even layer over the cheese sauce.

  9. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining cheese onto the tots. Return to the oven for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  10. If desired, sprinkle with fresh Italian parsley just before serving.
