The best dinners are the easy, but yummy ones. It’s hard to please everyone so I’ve decided against that. However today I made the best casserole to date. Yes, tater tots + meat = happy family ❤
Because there are 4 of us, I like to make enough to fit in a 9×13 pan and have enough leftovers for Eric to take to work.
Ingredients are as follows: 2 lbs of ground beef, 1-2 cans Cream of Chicken, 1 can corn (or green beans) and of course tater tots (I used frozen Ora-Ida brand) **shredded cheese is optional**
I start by browning the meat and draining out the grease. Simple enough? Then I keep the stove top on a medium heat while adding Cream of Chicken and the corn. I ensure everything is mixed well and the pan comes to a brief boil. Once everything is heated up, transfer into a 9×13 pan. I use a glass Pyrex to make sure everything is evenly distributed. (Now is the time you can add cheese). Ahh an even layer of yummy is all set and ready to go. Lastly, add the frozen tater tots to the top, covering evenly and overlapping only a few. Too many tater tots will keep the bottom layer from cooking evenly.
Make sure your oven is set at 450 degrees and ready to go. After it has been preheated, place the casserole in the oven and set the timer for 25 minutes.
Ding. Ding. Ding. Your 25 minutes is up and out comes a beautiful looking casserole. How exciting! We are big ketchup lovers so once your tater tot casserole is cooled and ready to serve if you’d like add a side of ketchup and TA-DA your easy dinner is ready to go!
I love this dish especially because it’s something that everyone can enjoy. Friends coming over? Dinner is done. Potluck at the in laws? Take it to go!
I hope you give it a try and let me know of any changes or favorites to add in 😉
