Moms BEST EVER Tatertot Hotdish
By Sarah Fillbrandt cookingcoward
This dish is a quintessential mid-western HOTDISH (I still don't know what a casserole is haha!) This is my mothers recipe - its pure comfort eating. Good, fill ya up, stick to your ribs, and make you happy kind of food. My family would always just go nuts when my mom made this and now my husband and friends do too! You HAVE to try it!
** Once browned (or not) place in bottom of 9x13 pan and spread out.
**My trick is to put small dollops all over surface and then spread those out slowly so you don't end up just "mixing" the soup and veggies together. This dish is all about the layers!
** I would NOT recommend substituting American with Cheddar - it gets pretty greasy. Do not substitute sliced with shredded as it does not melt evenly (and its a terrible base for the tots) TRUST ME :)
**Raw beef- 1 hour and check
**Browned beef - 45 minutes and check
You want to see the tots golden brown and the cheese bubbling.
**You really do not need much of a side with this... There are so many veggies in it. If anything maybe a salad. That' about it.
