  • 72 Frozen tater tots
  • 1 lb Ground beef (can use venison or turkey, if preferred)
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp Yellow mustard
  • 2 Tbsp Ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp Pickle relish
  • 1 cup Cheese (I used sharp white cheddar), shredded
  • Mini Pickles for garnish

Special Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip or Mayo
  • 4 Tbsp Pickle relish
  • 2 Tbsp Yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp White wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Onion powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray two 12-cup mini muffin tins (or 1 24-cup) with cooking spray. Place three tots in each cup, and bake for 10 minutes. 
  • While the tots are cooking, brown ground beef in a skillet over medium high heat. Once browned turn off heat, and drain off any grease. 
  • Add miracle whip or mayo, mustard, ketchup, and pickle relish to the ground beef and stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • When the tater tots are done, remove from oven and use the handle end of a large spoon to press the tater tots down and up the sides of the muffin tins cups, to create tater tot cups
  • Fill the tot cups with the ground beef mixture and top with shredded cheese.
  • Place the tater tots back in the oven and cook for another 15 minutes.
  • While the tater tot cups cool mix together all of the special sauce ingredients.
  • Remove the cheeseburger tots from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the muffin pan.
  • Drizzle the special sauce over the cheeseburger tots and top with mini pickle slices, and enjoy!
