One thing you will notice with my freezer to crockpot meals is that they are easy to make last minute if you have the right ingredients on hand. I am whipping this one up really quickly for a potluck dinner after church. You don’t have to freeze them first, but it sure helps when you have a few of these easy meals thrown together in the freezer for you to pull from when your life is in chaos mode, like mine! Now…on to the recipe…..
Tater Tot Casserole Recipe
32 oz bag tater tots
1 lb ground beef, browned
½ t. salt
¼ t. pepper
2 cans green beans
1 can cr. Mushroom soup
½ chopped onion
¼ c. milk
Cheese (optional for sprinkling over after cooked)
Freeze all but tater tots & cheese in freezer safe bag. Try to thaw the bag in the fridge, the night before cooking so it will spread out over tots easily.
To cook, line crockpot with tater tots, cover with bag of ingredients. Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3. Sprinkle each serving with cheese. My family likes to eat ketchup on this. Here it is, ready to go in the freezer.
