If you haven't figured it out yet my boyfriend is a meat and potato kind of guy.
When we first started dating he mentioned that his Grandma Nema used to make him Tater Tot Casserole as a kid. I called Aunt Linda and she gave me the recipe. It's super simple and only has four ingredients!
Tater Tot Casserole
2 lbs Extra lean ground beef
1 (10 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 (2 lb) package of frozen tater tots
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Put ground beef in the bottom of 13 x 9 pan.
Spread cream of mushroom on top of ground beef (you can thin it out with a little bit of milk so it spreads easier)
Cover with grated cheese. Top with tater tots (At first I thought Bobby was being anal but he said that his Grandma perfectly aligned them in the pan when he was little :)
Cover with foil and bake until meat is thoroughly cooked. About 30-40 minutes.
Uncover and bake another 15 minutes.
Bobby always mentions that he wishes I could have met his grandparents. They sound like they were lots of fun! I hope to meet them in heaven one day.
