Tater Tot Casserole

This is good "comfort food" on a cold, snowy or rainy day.

Ingredients:
  •  3/4 lb ground beef 
  •  1/2 lb sausage (hot)
  •  1 can whole kernel corn
    or 1/2 pkg frozen corn
  •  1 can pieces of mushrooms (optional)
  •  1 can of cream of mushroom or celery soup 
  •  1 package of shredded cheddar cheese 
  •  1/2 an onion (chopped) 
  •  1 bag or less of tater tots 

Prep:
Heat oven to 400F. While cooking ground beef till done mix together the corn, mushrooms, soup, 1/2 bag of cheese, and the onion. After ground beef is done mix all ingredients together.

Put in a well greased baking pan. Top with tater tots, and bake at 400∞ for about 30 mins.

Ten minutes before its done top with rest of cheese. Bake till tots and cheese is done. Serves about 4 people.

Variation:
For a mexican flair, use Campbell's Nacho Cheese soup (instead of the cream soup) and some frozen Santa Fe blend vegetables (black beans, corn, & broccoli instead of corn). Add 1/2 tsp chili powder to the beef, or season to your own taste.
