because we all know my love for the duggars, last night, in honor of their big announcement, i decided to give their famous tater tot casserole a try. (let me go ahead and tell you...i altered it. is that sacreligious??) and because i like to give credit where it is due, i will list their original recipe, and then give you the changes i made. let me just tell you, i can see why it is a kid favorite.
Duggar Tater Tot Casserole
2 lb ground turkey cooked, seasoned, drained
3 2lb bags tater tots
2 cans cream of mushroom
2 cans evaporated milk
2 cans cream of chicken
Brown meat & place in large cass. dish. Cover with tater tots. Mix soup & milk together.Pour over top. Bake at 350 for 1 Hour. (One of Daddy’s Favorites!) Makes 2- 9”X13” pans.
Tucker Tater Tot Casserole
1 lb ground beef (cause it's what i had...i'm not anti turkey in any way) and seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders
3/4-1 bag tater tots
1 can evaporated milk
1 can cream of chicken/mushroom
1 can cheddar cheese soup
4 oz sour cream
brown beef with seasonings and drain. line bottom of pan (i used my square pampered chef stone). top beef with tater tots (and i used the rounds, not the regular ones, cause again...it's what i had.) mix soups, milk and sour cream. pour on top of tater tots. bake at 350 for 1 hour.
while it's NOT gourmet (and nothing i make is), i'd eat it again. i almost wanted to add tomato sauce or something with the GB. not sure. anyway, give it a whirl. your kiddies will surely like it!!
