It's so easy to create a fresh meal for your family in a flash and as we head into the school season it's even more important to have those meals. With brands like Heinz, Schwan's, Kellogg's, and Hillshire making meals is easy when you use frozen foods.

Frozen foods are often just as good as non and they're such an easy way to create something your family will love on those busy weeknights during back to school. Frozen. How Fresh Stays Fresh is a great resource for information! 

Need a quick meal? I love the idea of making Old El Paso Frozen Entrees or maybe some Mrs. Paul's Crunchy Fish Sticks from Pinnacle. Another fun idea for a quick meal is FRESCHETTA® frozen pizzas, always a great meal made quickly. For breakfast and snack time one of our favorites is Greek Frozen Yogurt.

  • 1 bag Ore-Ida Tater Tots
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups of cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 3 chopped pieces of celery
  • 1/2 lb bacon

Tater tots are so much fun and I think they're such a fun twist on dinner. Simply add your ingredients to your frozen tater tots. Then mix well. I also made cure to cook the bacon ahead of time.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake your casserole for 30 minutes.

I'd like to encourage you to learn more about the benefits of frozen foods and fresh vs frozen .

    What a easy & simple dish to throw together. The kids will eat the broccoli since there is cheese involved. Anyone can make this really since it’s so quick.

    Tater Tots are seriously a favorite of mine!!! And they are so fun. We usually just eat them along side of burgers instead of french fries

    Oh my goodness that looks so yummy! My whole family would love it! I have a bad habit of shopping in the frozen pizza department! I can’t wait to try this! Thanks for posting!

    We call it Tator Tot Hotdish, and we have been eating this for years. I like the way you mix it up, we don’t usually do cheese (but we will now).

    My husband was just talking about a tator tot casserole and I had no idea what that was. This really does look good. I will definitely have to try it now!

    We’re a Voila and frozen dinners like that family. I like frozen vegetables because they’re fresh frozen, so I totally agree with you.

    I love the idea of adding broccoli! We sometimes have frozen chicken breasts for a quick weekday meal.

  12. Rosie says

    This looks scrumptious – I don’t tend to have frozen foods, but this is a great idea – I’m always looking for new ways for broccoli, I’m excited to try this!
