Anyhow, after the contest, I had to go on a bit of a tater tot hiatus. The thought of eating more was rather sickening. But that all changed after my friend Alysha from She's on the Run introduced me to Tater Tot Casserole. After just one bite, I knew I had to have the recipe, which combines tater tots with a cream sauce, cheese and fried onions.
I've prepared this simple casserole a few times now, and it makes a great vegetarian main or side dish. Try serving it with a green or fruit salad.
Tater Tot Casserole
1 32 oz package tater tots
1 16 oz container light sour cream (I recommend Daisy brand)
1 cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese
1 can condensed cream of celery soup
1 6 oz can French fried onions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch-baking dish. Arrange tater tots in the prepared baking dish.
In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, cheese and soup. Pour this mixture over the tater tots. Sprinkle onions over the top of the casserole.
Bake for 45 to 60 minutes.Have you ever participated in an eating contest? If so, how did you fare?
