My mother in law made this on one of her visits to our house. This is not a "tater tot" casserole! It has SO much flavor and leftovers taste even better the next day! This is a meal that will fill your belly, but not empty your wallet! This is very versatile, where you can just add what you think will be good and helps clean out the pantry! you can double the recipe and put half in the freezer for another days meal.
