Tater Hot Dishes

8 posts in this topic

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.

    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
