Pizza Tot Casserole

Ok, yet another quick-n-easy! But kids of all ages LOVE this and it is indeed quick, freezes well also. We took a pan to my sick auntie.

It is a not-so-traditional spin on a hamburger-tator tot casserole.

Hope everyone is doing well with the heat, we are back to normal here. We did get some nice rain, about 1-1/2 inches.

This is a TOH recipe.

Pizza Tot Casserole
Serves 4-6

1 pound hamburger (can use sausage here)
1/2 of green bell pepper, chopped small
1/2 medium onion, chopped small
1 can tomato soup, not diluted
1 can mushrooms, drained
1 fat clove garlic, minced
Italian seasoning to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 bag frozen tator tots
Snipped pepperoni - optional

Grease a 9 x 11 pan. Preheat oven to 350F. Brown hamburger with garlic, pepper and onion in skillet. Drain well (I usually rinse with boiling water after draining). Stir in tomato soup and season to taste. Mix in mushrooms. Spread in pan. Top with cheese and finally with tator tots. Top that with the snipped pepperoni. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve with crusty breadsticks and a nice green salad.

You can mix and match this however you like, according to what you usually put on your pizza. Throw some canadian bacon in, or olives.

That looks tasty Raquel, I take it you are using concentrated tomato soup like campbells? I think the girls would like that one. We call the tater tots oven crunchies.
