Do you ever just get the “I don’t want to and you can’t make me, nanny, nanny boo-boo’s”? Today, that was my attitude. The last thing I wanted to do was come home and cook dinner. (Dang, why did I give the maid the night off?!) I had promised my husband for quite sometime that I would make him a tater tot casserole. Tonight was the night! Originally, I was going to make it as a side dish, but because of my laziness, I decided I wanted to make it into a complete meal.
The original recipe does not include meat. On Cooks.com,there were several recipes that incorporated browned ground beef and some added green beans or broccoli. I remembered I had some ham in the freezer and thought that would be a good idea. I chose not to add veggies because I planned on serving a side salad.
It is a good, hearty meal, and I think this would be super on a cold fall or winter night, especially before heading out to the football game on a Friday night. It was effortless. Exactly what I was looking for. Kids would totally dig this too!
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your week!
