This is a tastier version of Tater Tot® casserole with hearty ingredients for a full meal. Made with Owens® Original Breakfast Sausage, Ro*Tel® Diced Tomatoes, frozen broccoli cuts and Ore-Ida® Tater Tots®. I like it because it is easier than shepherd's pie. My friends and their pre-teen kids love it too. Spread more cheese over potatoes before baking if desired.

I used red potatoes instead of tater tots. I sautéed onions and garlic and potatoes in a skillet first to help cook the potatoes faster. I also sprinkled the potatoes with pepper and seasoned salt. Then I added it into the casserole dish with broccoli florets cheese cream of celery can and a can of Rotel tomatoes and chilis. Mixed it all together with shredded cheese covered and baked. FYI it still took an hour to bake. I topped it with Sour cream upon serving and oh my! It's pretty inexpensive to make too. Enjoy! Read More

We all loved it. My son and husband added hot sauce. I used a combination of mozzarella and Monterey Jack cheeses because that’s all I had. But it turned out great. It was quick to make. It was a nice hot, hearty meal for a cold night. Read More
