Cowboy Casserole – the name makes you feel like you’re sitting by the chuck wagon doesn’t it?
I had to adapt the original recipe a bit because when I started cooking I realized that I didn’t have all of the ingredients. That’s the great thing about creating in the kitchen – you can make it work with the items you have on-hand. The end result was that it turned out great!
Not only was this recipe tasty, it was also very simple to make. I had some chopped onions in the freezer so I threw them in (still frozen) after the meat was cooked and they cooked down beautifully!
I’ve had tater tot casseroles before but never one with a layer of tator tots on the top and the bottom! Trent thought this recipe might also be good with green beans so we added some in when we had leftovers. He was right – yummo!
1 pound Ground Meat (I used turkey)
1 medium Onion, chopped
1 can (15.25oz) Whole Kernel Corn, drained
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 cup Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup Milk
1 bag frozen Tater Tots
- Brown your meat.
- Add your onions and cook down a bit.
- In a separate bowl combine the soup, cheese and milk. Add this mixture and the corn to the cooked meat mixture and mix well.
- Place half of the tator tots in the bottom of a 2.5 quart casserole dish. Top with the meat mixture and then another layer of tater tots.
- Bake in a 350 oven for 30-45 minutes.
