Tater Tot Casserole

This dish is kind of like a Shepard’s pie on easy mode.  This is my aunt’s recipe, though go to any pot luck or funeral back home and you’re going to find one there.  I have a good friend who makes it with cheese, which I tried and disliked.  I have a cousin whose wife makes this by adding in tomato paste with the meat, which isn’t too bad.  I prefer it simple and if you have to throw together a dinner on the fly or are making a meal in advance to bake later – this is by far the easiest you’ll find.

(Due to my camera being on the fritz, I’ll have to update with pictures later.)


2 pounds ground beef
