Taste Bud Tuesday

TatorTotSurpriseIngredientsFrom time to time I’ll post a family favorite recipe.  Cooking is definitely not my forte, so I am thankful that my family is gracious to enjoy the simplest of meals.  I prefer to plan our weekly dinner menu in advance, to help with our daily schedule and routines.  Not to mention, a planned menu will assist me in keeping within our grocery budget.  Today’s dish: Tator Tot Surprise

I received this recipe over 9 years ago in a recipe exchange through a moms’ playgroup at our church.  I was eager to try this dish because it consisted of less than 5 ingredients and took less than 20 minutes to prepare.
