Tater Tot Casserole {with pork}

We’ve all heard of the infamous Tater Tot Casserole… But we just tried it for the first time last night! We added our own twist to it- ground pork instead of ground beef! And mmmmmm it was SO GOOD! 
Here’s our recipe- we hope you enjoy!


Ingredients:

– 1 Pound Ground Pork
– 1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
– 2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese (you can play around with this- if you like more cheese, add more; like less, add less)
– Onion Powder & Cayenne Powder to taste (I used a couple of dashes)
– 1/2 Cup Milk 
– 1 Bag Tater Tots (Note: I let my tots thaw out for about an hour before I was ready to cook) 

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Grease a 13X9 pan.
  2. Cook the pork until well done in a skillet.
  3. In a bowl, combine the entire can of Cream of Mushroom soup, the milk and 1 cup of cheese. Add the onion and cayenne powder to taste.
  4. Combine with the pork until mixture is well combined.
  5. Layer the bottom of you pan with tater tots. Pour the meat and soup mixture you made in step 3 over those. Add another layer of tots on the top. Top with the remainder cheese.
  6. Bake at 350F for 35 minutes or until you see bubbling and the tots are golden brown. For the last 3 minutes, I broiled them on low to add a nice crisp- just make sure you watch this because it can easily burn the whole thing if you let it go too long! 
  7. Serve and enjoy! (We added some ketchup on the side for added yumminess)
