The Result: Tater Tot Casserole

We loved the Tater Tot Casserole! It was really good. Not fancy, by any means...but substantial, yummy food. Claire had mentioned that she liked hers with ketchup, so I thought I would try it. I totally agree that it ROCKS with ketchup on it! Both the husband and boy really dug it,as well. We all had seconds, and my husband is taking the rest for lunch tomorrow. Sadly, there are no leftovers. I think I was in the mood for exactly this type of food it completely hit the spot!

The sour cream was a great addition, and I would not hesitate to put it in again. We served this dish with a side of green beans, and that was it. I liked that the protein and starch components were together, which made it really easy. Hooray for one dish meals! I went over to the dark side a little on this one. Especially considering my previous rants against all things condensed, cream, canned soup. I know, I hurts me to tell you that I loved this recipe! But, in my defense, I made it in my Le Creuset au gratin dish. That made me feel a little less hypocritical. Also, I will profess my love for the tot over and over again.

This was a great idea (albeit a little humbling). We will totally make this again. Thanks Claire!

If you like black olives I also add sliced black olives to mine. Sometimes I even add a can of mushrooms depending on my mood. This is one of my favorite dishes to make. My hubby eats it with ketchup too..but I like mine plain. Yummy!!
