Cream Soup Free Tater Tot Casserole

I have to admit it.... I love tater tot casserole. This casserole was one of my first blogging recipes, but I felt I needed to update it from 2007. Usually, this recipe calls for a cream soup of some kind, but I decided that I could take care of that part on my own. I loved how this casserole turned out! Ron was thrilled to have tater tot casserole for dinner and I loved the familiar comfort of the casserole.

Thank you for your comments of the cookies! It was funny that I did two so close together...I am not a baker. However, it was a pleasant surprise how well they turned out! Yum.... :)

Ron is on the Old Glory Honor Flight today bringing Wisconsin veterans to see their Washington D.C. memorials. I am so proud of his commitment to this organization.
