Tuesday Tasty Pork Recipe

Once again I go another week with no other post besides my Tuesday Tasty Pork Recipe!  But I am happy to report that, that, should change because we finished harvest!!!!  Well, I should correct that, we finished combining.  Which means that LP and I won't be in the field anymore.  Tomorrow I'm planning on posting some photos from the end of harvest.

Now onto this week's Tuesday Tasty Pork Recipe in honor of National Pork Month.  I decided that this week's recipe should be all about comfort, so I'm sharing my recipe for Tater Tot Casserole.  It is nothing fancy but it is how I like to make the classic dish.  I love anything I can do in a 9x13 pan and that only takes six ingredients!  I also have to admit, growing up I never had Tater Tot Casserole very much growing up but whenever I did I loved it.  This recipe is something I completely threw together with ingredients that I thought should be in the casserole.  My family likes it, so I feel like it works.  I hope you enjoy!

Tater Tot Casserole

1 - 32oz package tater tots (with onion if available)
1# ground pork
1 cup frozen corn
1 - 16oz container sour cream
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Ingredient Line-up
Place tater tots in greased 9x13 pan.

I don't find the need to line up the tater tots - I just throw them in!
Brown ground pork.

I cook the pork in the microwave and then reuse the dish to mix other ingredients.
Top tater tots with pork.

Top casserole with corn (or whatever frozen vegetable you like).

Meanwhile, mix sour cream and soup together.

Add cheese to mixture.

Mix well.

Spread on top of casserole.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes until brown and bubbly.
