Tator Tot Casserole

.....or Tator Tot Hot Dish for all my Minnesota friends!

I was looking for new recipes on the Internet and came across this recipe.  I know it has been around a while but have never made it.  Honestly, it is way over our fat and calorie limits, but I thought it was time for a change from grilled fish, baked chicken and steamed veggies.  My boys inhaled it.  You could easily make this a bit healthier by using lean hamburger and low fat/fat free ingredients.

Tator Tot Casserole
1 32 oz. bag frozen Tator Tots
1 pound ground beef
1 can cream of chicken soup
16 oz sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
1/4 cup chopped onion
Garlic salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Brown hamburger and onions.  Add garlic salt and pepper to taste.  Drain meat.  In a large bowl, mix hamburger, cream of chicken soup, sour cream and 1 cup of cheddar cheese.  Add 1/2 bag of tator tots to mixture.  Place in a sprayed 9x13 plan.  Top with remaining bag of tator tots.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Top with remaining 1 cup of cheese and bake an additional 15 minutes.

This dish could be easily adjusted to cook in your crock pot and is a great pot luck dish.
