A Real Man’s Meal

I love tater tots! Hash browns, whatever you want to call them. Something about that crispy brown outside and the warm soft inside. I usually think of hash browns for breakfast. I don’t know why. I guess they are breakfast’s version of the french fry. 

I came across a recipe called Cowboy Casserole. The first thing I noticed was the hash browns on top covered with cheese. The recipe looked good without me even having to read it. I knew it would be one that My Man would love!  

Since MM isn’t a cowboy, he hasn’t ever even been on a horse, I decided to rename it. It’s a meat and potatoes meal and what man doesn’t like a meat and potato kind of meal?

Putting It All Together

I did pour it in, I just liked how the camera focused on the milk and the soup is all blurry in the background. One of my better photos. Just wish I could remember how I did it. 

IMG_1432 All in there.

IMG_1437Mix it all together and pour over the browned meat and onions. 

IMG_1438Stir all together.

IMG_1440and the corn. 

IMG_1442Again, stir it all together.

IMG_1448Spread it all over the tater tots. 

IMG_1450Add another layer of tater tots on top of the meat mixture.

IMG_1452Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.

Until later,
