A few months ago, I had an itch for tater tot casserole and had not a CLUE on how to make it. I scrounged around on recipe websites to get an idea, and this is what I came up with. This was my first ever experimental recipe, and boy was it GOOD! Even my picky hubby went back for seconds! Worth a try for a quick and easy dinner! And plus it's Gluten-free, double win! (Don't mistake that for healthy *ahem*)
It's in the oven right at this moment for us to pack up for dinner! I'm drooling already.
