So, recently I was rooting around on my baking station (a converted desk in the kitchen with all my gadgets and supplies) looking for some vintage cookie cutters and came across a handwritten recipe for Tater Tot Casserole. I grabbed a fridge magnet and stuck the index card to the side to remind me that it would make a great Sunday Football dish someday soon. Well, yesterday was that day! The original had a tub of sour cream which I changed to french onion dip. We happened to have some Pepperjack cheese so a 1/2 cup of each was mixed in instead of a full cup of sharp cheddar.. I used fried onions instead of real. I even put it into a PowerPoint pic for you. And added the most important part in my eyes to make it a Po Man's dish besides the Tots: WIENERS!! Mostly because it's a great word to say. Wieners.
"Would you like to try my casserole?"
"Maybe some other time."
"Did I mention it has WIENER'S in it?"
"Well of course! Load me up!"
Next time I might try adding a 1/2 tub of the dip and 1/2 tub sour cream which would cut down the onion taste a little since there are cheddar fried onions in it also. There is so much flavor that a cage fight will happen in your mouth upon each bite.
