Welcome to the first Tasty Tuesday of the new year. Who has leftover ham from Christmas dinner in their frig? We still had some, and I wanted to use it up this past weekend. So while cruising through some cookbooks, I came upon this recipe for a Tater Tot Casserole. It called for chicken, but I decided to use up the ham, and boy, I am glad I did.
This week’s recipe comes from Wanda E. Brunstetter’s Amish Friends Farmhouse Favorites Cookbook that my secret sister gave me for Christmas. This cookbook has over 200 recipes for simple and hearty meals.
Here is the recipe if you’d like to fix a really yummy, hearty meal for dinner this week.
Tater Tot Casserole, Mary King, Leola, PA, page 92, “Wanda E. Brunstetter’s Amish Friends Farmhouse Favorites Cookbook”
1 quart string beans, drained
1 can cream or mushroom or celery soup
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, drained
2 cups chicken broth
1 package frozen tater tots
Layer ingredients in casserole dish in order given. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, uncovered.
So as I mentioned above, I used leftover ham instead of chicken for this. And instead of the chicken broth since I wasn’t using chicken, I used an extra can of cream of mushroom soup. It turned out really good with the ham, and I’ll definitely fix this again.
It was easy to put together, and I used a quart of string beans that my Amish friend had canned for us this summer. So this Amish recipe had a touch of Amish in it.
Hope you have a great first week of January. Stay healthy, happy, and safe!
