Friday's Fabulous Family Recipe

This recipe came to me from a friend (Thanks Jen!!) a long time ago, and I have modified it ever so slightly for our family.
My children find this quite yummy, especially our 16-month-old, who eats gobs of it!!

Tator Tot Casserole

1 lb. ground turkey
2 large cans (28 oz.) green beans
1 can (15 oz.) cream of mushroom soup
1 can (15 oz.) cream of chicken soup
1 bag (32 oz.) tator tots

Let your oven preheat to 425' while you brown your ground turkey, seasoning to taste. Dump your turkey, green beans, and soups into a 9 x 13" baking dish. Stir all together until well blended. Pile on frozen tator tots and spread to cover the rest of the casserole. Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes until tots are browned nicely and it's bubbly hot. Let cool before you serve, unless the wonderful smell overtakes you and you can't wait!!

I'm serving this tonight with fresh, sweet, juicy strawberries paired with
some fabulous chocolate whipped topping!!

Note: You can double the amount of turkey if your family is particularly carnivorous....mine is not.
And if you are really amazing and have a garden, you can of course substitute
your own garden fresh green beans or you can use frozen also.

Found the blog! Hi!!!!

I have never heard of green beans in a tater tot casserole, but that's a good way to slip in a veggie. I may have to try that.

Wonderful meal...ate it many times. We use ground beef instead of turkey, and 2 cans cream of mushroom instead of the cream of chicken.

Keep up the good work!

Oh, yes, and we have used fresh green beans from the garden when we have them...and we freeze the rest for just this purpose during the year.

Be sure to serve the strawberries and chocolate items to the side, though.
