Tater Tot Casserole

This meal is the epitome of quick fix. My mom used to make this growing up. It is perfect when you are in a time crunch. My husband begs for this meal. I wouldn't say that it is good enough to beg for, but it is yummy... unless your Alissa who doesn't like cream soups, then it is nasty.
Tater Tot Casserole

From: Mom aka Ruth Solter

1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 med. onion
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
garlic powder, to taste
1 package frozen tator tots, thawed...or not
1 can cream of mushroom soup
sour cream to taste
salt and pepper to taste

Brown ground beef with onion and fresh garlic. Drain fat. Add cream of mushroom soup and enough sour cream to make enough sauce for the tater tots. (I usually use a few good sized spoonfuls.) Add garlic powder if the mixture doesn't taste garlicy enough for you. (It never does for us)

Dump your tater tots into a casserole dish. Pour cream soup sauce over the top and mix well. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes or until everything is hot.
