Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole
I made a regular tater tot casserole yesterday and realized I never posted about the Sloppy Joe version I made last month.
This was a new thing for me. I came across a recipe on the web, gave it a try and it turned out to be pretty good.
As is usually the case, I wound up modifying the recipe, mostly because it was one of those recipes that made everything from scratch and I really didn't have the time to do that.
If you want to try my version of this, here's what you'll need:
1 pound of ground beef
1 can of Sloppy Joe mix (I used Manwich because it was on sale)
1 bag of tater tots
1 green pepper
Shredded Colby Jack Cheese
You start out by browning the hamburger and mixing in the Sloppy Joe mix. You then put the Sloppy Joe meat in the bottom of a baking dish.
Top with chopped bell pepper and chopped onion
Add a layer of shredded cheese
Add the still-frozen tater tots in a layer
Add another layer of shredded cheese
I topped mine off with bell pepper rings but this is optional (I mostly did it to add color).
Bake at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes or until fully cooked. I'd recommend letting it cool for a few minutes before trying to eat it.
