Tater Tot Casserole

Do you need a  cheap dinner that’s a big hit with the kids? How about something that very easy to throw together? Give this Tater Tot Casserole a try. We love it around here and it makes a regular appearance on our menu.

I serve it with a big side salad or some steamed broccoli. Of course you can add any veggies your family likes to the basic casserole recipe.

Here’s a quick tip to make putting this together even faster. After you get back from the grocery store, go ahead and brown your ground beef and have it waiting in the fridge when you’re ready to assemble the casserole.
