Cowboy Casserole

For years I’ve made Tater Tot Casserole and always liked it.

Then on Facebook I found a recipe for Cowboy Casserole on Bake By Kim.
While the Cowboy Casserole is very similar to the Tater Tot Casserole it is WAY better!!

Notes:
I doubled the recipe and cooked it in a 13×9 pan.
I used tater tots cause I couldn’t find the crowns.
I used cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom
We have three adults, two teenagers and a toddler and by doubling this recipe it filled the pan with plenty of leftovers!

Cowboy Casserole

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds ground beef (I used 80/20)
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 can (15.25oz) whole kernel corn, drained
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons sour cream
1 bag (30 oz) frozen tater tots ( Or Ore-Ida Crispy Crowns)

Directions

Before I got ready to make this casserole, I let the Crispy Crowns sit on the counter to defrost for an hour or so. The original recipe used still frozen tater tots, but I felt they wouldn’t cook as well if they were still frozen solid.

In a large skillet cook the onion until tender and translucent. Add the chopped garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Add the beef and cook over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain the mixture and place into a large bowl and set aside.

In a small bowl combine the soup, milk and sour cream. Whisk until smooth. Add to hamburger mixture and stir to combine. Add corn and 1 cup of cheddar cheese. Gently mix to combine.

Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish. Layer half of the Crispy Crowns on the bottom, pour the hamburger mixture over the top and then layer with the other half of the Crispy Crowns. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake at 350 for 25 – 30 minutes, or until golden brown and crunchy.
