I never heard of tater tot casserole in my life before I moved to the Midwest from Florida! I love that this dish is pretty much impossible to mess up.

I could see this being a staple meal in our house. It is delicious and filling!

This was really good! I think everyone in my family would enjoy it, kids and adults.

Mmmm, I love sloppy joes and wouldn't have thought to try this combination, but like the comment below me, it works so well! Perfect comfort food.

This isn't a combination I'd ever think to try, but it's hard to mess up any dish with tater tots in them, so I was on board. This was a great comfort food recipe that'd be especially tempting in the winter.
