Since, I started this blog, I've noticed I to a lot of " ______ & gravy" recipes! Like my buckeye biscuits and gravy and Chicken Pot Pie Biscuits and gravy. Well, I do have a reason! I can't stand soggy/doughy food. I am not a fan of regular chicken pot pie, because the topping always seems doughy, chicken and dumplings make me gag... and don't even get me started on under-cooked pizza! So when it came to Tater Tot Casserole, (which I love) I knew there had to be a way to keep those tot's crisp all around! And... Whalla! Here's your answer! the tot's stay crisp and crunchy, while you are free to add as much or as little 'gravy' as you like! It's really the perfect scenario!
1 lb ground beef- seasoned to your liking and cooked
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 can short cut green beans
1 T worsh. sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
3/4 cup (give or take) milk
1 bag tater tots
Preheat your oven, and begin to cook your tater tots.
In a large sauce pan, add you mushroom soup, worsh. sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer. Add in your cooked ground beef and green beans. Slowly add milk until your reach the consistency you like. I used about 3/4 cup. Heat through and pour over hot tots. Top with cheese (optional)
