While searching for more freezer recipes online, I ran across a cool website called The Freezer Chicks. They have lots of great freezer recipes out there!
I've had many variations of Tator Tot Casserole but never one quite like this so we are going to give it a try. It was very easy to put together and it is now tucked away in our deep freezer...another meal waiting to be eaten after our baby girl is born.
Tator Tot Casserole
1 lb. ground beef
small onion, chopped
1 can Cream Mushroom Soup
1/4 c. milk
1 c. sour cream
16 oz. pkg frozen mixed vegetables
3 c. shredded cheddar cheese (medium or sharp)
Brown ground beef and drain. Saute onion until translucent. Mix. In bowl mix soup, milk, sour cream. Stir until well blended. In 9'x13' freezer/oven pan layer ingredients evenly as follows:
1. Ground beef/onion mixture.
2. Frozen Vegetables (break up any clumps of vegetables)
3. Soup/milk/sour cream mixture.
4. Cheddar cheese.
5. Top with layer of tater tots.
Cover with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil and freeze. Freezes about 6 months.
To heat: Preheat oven to 350'. Bake UNCOVERED 35-45 minutes until tater tots are brown and casserole is bubbly.
