Cowboy Casserole

I have been wanting to try a tater tot casserole for awhile now. Yes, that’s right… I have never had one, let alone made one… so this is a double first. First time making it and the first time tasting it… and I am happy with both. It’s really good… kinda like an odd Shepard’s Pie… but odd in a good way.

It is 100% Hubbyman approved and I think it will forever be in my weeknight arsenal!

Family Friendly and Budget Worthy of a try.
