  2. Melt butter in a small saucepan and then pour in the nutritional yeast mixture
  3. Cook over low-medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Add more milk if the consistancy becomes too thick. Serve immediately.

  4. Drain the beef, if needed, and place in a separate bowl
  5. Using the same skillet, fry your toppings for a few minutes until tender.
  6. When the tator tots are finished, remove them from the baking sheet and place them in a deep dish pan.

  8. Drizzle with cheese
  9. Put back in the oven at 350° for 10-15 minutes until warmed through.
