Easy Dinner Tater Tot Casserole

Here's a quick, easy and most importantly, tasty dinner. Because of family food allergies to MSG, we do things a little different around here. So here is my Tater Tot Casserole using our own pork and chicken noodle soup ( much more affordable version) instead of ground beef and cream of ... soup.

1/2 lb. ground pork
1/4 c. flour
1 can chicken noodle soup without MSG
1/2 can whole milk (or half and half)

1 c. shredded white cheddar cheese
1T. parsley
1/2 t. chives
1/4 t. celery salt
1/8 t. paprika
 1/2 bag tater tots
2 fresh eggs, beaten
optional, french fried onions
Side: Green beans

Brown ground pork, and if excess fat, drain off. Move off heat and sprinkle with the flour and stir until all pork is covered. Pour in chicken noodle soup, milk, cheddar cheese and herbs and put back over heat. As it starts to simmer, you will see it thicken. Stir it occasionally so it doesn't stick and burn.

Using an 8" x 8" pan, fill the bottom with the tater tots - pretty much half a standard bag. The tots can be frozen or thawed - it's a small dish and cooks well.  Break the eggs into a cup or bowl and scramble well and then pour over the potatoes and mix. Now take your pan with the mix and pour it over the tot & egg mixture. If desired, you can add french fried onions. We love them in our family.

Bake at 325 for 45-50 minutes.
We served it this time with some green bean that we froze from this summer.

Here it is, ready to eat ... I couldn't get the picture soon enough. Everyone was ready to eat!

All the ingredients that are bold in the list are things that we grew here at Willows Edge Farm this last year.
