Tater Tot Casserole is always a good stand by for a quick weeknight meal.
Not to mention much nicer on the checkbook than takeout!  

I like to hide veggies in the mixture and & serve a salad to complete the meal for my family!

Now, I'm not saying mine is better than anyone else.
Though there is one special ingredient that I think totally makes this 
Tater Tot Casserole the best!
