After the last of the tater tots is placed on top, cover the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 3 hours. Remove the slow cooker lid and add plenty of cheese on top. Cook for another 30 minutes until the cheese is ooey, gooey and melted and you’re ready to serve. That’s all there is to it. Just a few simple steps before this comfort-food casserole makes its way to your table.
