Everyone has grown up with Tator Tot Hotdish. This version was brought to me by a friend after the birth of one of my kids. It's the only way I make it anymore. The tator tots really do get crispy on the bottom. The swiss cheese adds a great creamy flavor to an ordinary dish. I also would not use frozen vegtables because it's not in the oven long enough to soften the vegtables.
