      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Tater Hot Dishes

Recommended Posts

Looking for recipes for tater hot dishes. I like the simple, good for your soul dishes. I made one the other night:

Ground Turkey - Brown and season to taste

can of corn, can of cream of Celery, cream of Mushroom, mix ingredients and top it off with tater tots, then bake at 350 degrees for about 25-25 minutes. Topped it off with shredded cheddar right before serving.

That's pretty much all I do, but I use Cream of chicken instead of celery. Also use Green Beans instead of corn. You can pretty much mix or match your veggies and soup in these.

They are simple to make and very good as well.

Brown a pound of hamburger along with some diced onion.

Add a can of cream of celery and a can of milk. Mix well and simmer. Salt and pepper to taste.

In a casserole dish put down a layer of tots and pour a portion of the meat mix over the tots.

On top of that layer spoon in some french style green beans.

Repeat with a layer of tots, meat mix, beans, and so on until the dish is full.

Put into oven at 350 for about an hour.

I've added canned corn with the green beans and that is great as well.

I like mine cheesy.

Brown 1 lb ground beef with onions & garlic. Salt & pepper the beef.

Drain grease. Pour into casserole dish and add 1 can of cream of mushroom and 1/2 can of Cream of Cheese & 1/2 can of Cream of Chicken.

While beef is browning, cook 1 small bag of frozen mixed vegetables according to directions and add to the dish along with a can of mushrooms. Re-season with small amount of season salt and pepper (not too much salt cause the soup is loaded with it.)

Mix all together and top with a layer of velveeta cheese.

Top that with tator tots and cook in preheated oven 375 for about 35 minutes or till tots and crunchy and done. If you have an aluminum casserole dish, throw out on the grill if you can maintain your temperature at 350- 375.

Fresh grilled garlic bread is a must to have along side.

Brown 1 1/2 lbs to 2 lbs hamburger with about 1/2 of a medium onion. Drain grease.

In a bowl mix:

1 can cheddar cheese soup

1 1/2 cans cream of celery or cream of chicken soup. (I'm not a mushroom fan so I don't use cream of mushroom)

Add 1 to 1 1/2 cups of peas (however much you like)

Put hamburger into in 9 X 13 in baking pan. Pour soup mixture over hamburger & mix well. Top with tater tots. Bake at 425 for 25-30 min until tater tots are browned.

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!
