Tater Tot Casserole {Recipe}

Tater Tot Casserole
Makes enough for small army. {Since the ingredients are practically impossible to halve, I like to reserve half (before baking) into a Tupperware that gets popped into the freezer for later. Don’t worry, even with half there is still plenty for leftovers.}

1 lb ground hamburger {we prefer ground turkey but it does have less flavor}
1 onion, chopped {leave these pretty large}
1 (16 oz.) package frozen tater tots
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup cheddar cheese {or more}

Make It 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Brown hamburger with onion, drain excess fatty fat
Combine hamburger and onion with remaining ingredients {use the biggest bowl you’ve got}
Pour into large casserole dish
Bake 20 minutes or until tater tots are golden

While delicious, this casserole requires mass amounts of ketchup and hot sauce (Tabasco, Tapatio) of choice.

I’ve made it with the cheese mixed in and cheese just on top. Trust me, mix the cheese in and then add some to the top if you please. It adds tons of flavor and a more creamy consistency when mixed in.

I'm linking up to these sweet Linky Parties.

I make this but I add a small tub of sour cream with the mixture. It's scrumptious! :)
