Tator Tot Casserole w/Bacon

Jill Richmond


Slight variations on a very Basic recipe made this one a HUGE hit with my family!! I was instructed to throw the OLD recipe out ... this was the Keeper. Used MINI Tator tots for more "Tot coverage"

I did not add salt ... enough "salty" flavor comes from the bacon.
