Tater-Tot Casserole

5 ingredients plus seasonings!!
My idea of a quick and delicious weeknight meal.

Our first football game is this week which means we are heading full steam ahead into another marching band season.  Mixed feelings on that one though, because this is our last marching band season.  My baby is now a high school senior!

After school rehearsals, weekend ballgames, weekend marching competitions, all team up to add a few more layers of busy-ness to our schedule so anything quick and easy is very much in order right now.

Tater-tot casserole goes together before you can turn around twice and bakes almost as quickly.

Tater-Tot Casserole

1 lb. lean ground beef or turkey
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can cream of chicken soup
(or cream of mushroom but I am not a fan of mushrooms, in fact, I dislike them intensely)
frozen tater tots
shredded colby-jack cheese

Press ground meat in the bottom of an 8- or 9-inch casserole dish.  Season with salt and pepper then sprinkle with chopped onions.

Spread soup over onions and top with a layer of frozen tater tots, placed end to end and squeezing in as many as you can.

Cover with a generous sprinkling of shredded cheese and bake at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes until bubbly.

While the casserole is baking, mix up a nice, green salad and you have yourself a meal.
