A Tater Tot Hot Dish

Some dishes are local staples.  I recall stopping in at a restaurant in Scotland, South Dakota, where the population is mostly of German descent, and they were cooking Haggis.  With a Scots surname, I didn’t get a choice in what I ordered – I was given “Haggis”.  Robert Burns wouldnae hae recognized it – by the time the South Dakota ladies had modified the recipe, it was downright tasty – worthy of a second helping.

Brookings, on the other hand, was a spot where tater tot casseroles showed up with amazing regularity – weddings, funerals, potlucks – the tater tots were a staple.  This recipe comes from the KBRK Cookbook – p 27, and was contributed by Margie Cole. 

2 lbs hamburger
Cream soup, any kind
tater tots

Brown hamburger and onion, drain.  Stir in soups, add a little milk and mix with hamburger.  Pour into a 9×13 pan and cover with tater tots.  Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
