Tator Tot Casserole

I LOVE this stuff.  If we made this every day I'd probably weigh 500 pounds.  I Kid. You. Not.  I'm so glad my sister Stacy only made this once for our Christmas Potluck Party of 2012.  It was so good, it was hard to eat anything else lol  




Tator Tot Casserole



Ingredients you'll need:
  • 2 Pounds ground beef
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 1 family sized can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 small bag of frozen tator tots
  • 1 24 ounce container sour cream
  • 1 8 ounce package shredded mild cheese




Directions:

  • Crumble hamburger into a large skillet, add onion.  Cook over medium heat until no longer pink.  Drain meat mixture.  Stir in cream of mushroom soup right out of the can. Transfer to a 13x9 baking dish.  Top with tator tots and sour cream.  Sprinkle with cheese.  
  • Bake at 350 Degrees F for 35-40 minutes, or till heated through or cheese is melted.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

After it hits my plate =)


Lime Salad

Every year around Thanksgiving and Christmas it is a tradition at our house to serve this.  And it is never a disappointment!  I love Lime Salad.  It started with my Grandmother, and when she passed away, my sister Stacy took up the tradition.  We always make a huge bowl of it, but it never feels like enough.  So comforting and good!

Homemade Cranberry Sauce

It's the New Year, and my resolution was to continue to lose weight and feel better!  I'll be posting the remainder of my holiday recipes over the next few weeks.  And although they weren't all 'healthy', they are recipes we enjoyed during Christmastime and want to share with you all.

Which brings me to the first recipe.  Cranberry sauce.  But not just any cranberry sauce.  Homemade Cranberry sauce.  And it is so good!




Homemeade Cranberry Sauce

  • 1 (12 ounce) bag fresh cranberries
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 oranges, zested, peeled and diced
  • 3/4 cup orange juice


Directions:

  • Take the 4 oranges, and zest the rind off of them, peel them, and remove the membrane from around the orange pieces.  Next, add sugar, cranberries, orange juice, and orange pieces into a medium saucepan; bringing to boil over medium-high heat.
  • Reduce heat to medium, cook 12 minutes or until the cranberries pop.  Remove from heat, stir in rind.  Cool completely.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.
