Hamburger Tater Tot Casserole

This is a great recipe.  I owe the Cutting Edge of Ordinary for this one.  As they say… this stuff looks like dog food but tastes delicious! I made a few alterations just based on personal taste.

3 cloves garlic, chopped

  • Add the hamburger and cook until browned.  Drain the mixture and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together soup, milk and sour cream till well combined.

  • Layer half of the crispy crowns on the bottom of the casserole dish.
  • Top with the hamburger mixture.

Bacon Cheeseburger Pinwheels

Wow… here is a recipe that is pretty much life changing 🙂 These things are perfect. Perfect for life, perfect for dinner, perfect for lunch, perfect for game-time, just perfect. I mean, BACON… CHEESEBURGER… PINWHEEL… the name says it all.

I c Even Newton shamelessly begs for them!!

After much experimentation my husband and I decided that Gray’s Jamaican Spicy Sauce was the perfect accompaniment to these things.  Purists may argue for plain old Katsup and Mustard, but since I think Katsup is gross, I would argue back 🙂  No honestly we tried all options, Katsup, Mustard, BBQ sauce, etc… Jamaican Spicy was just the best.

3 TBSP Tomato sauce
1 Egg
1/2 cup Seneca Crispy Onions, crushed (or use whatever local brand you can find

  • Slice the log into 16 or so pieces, approximately 1 inch each.  Don’t worry if the dough looks a little thin.  It will puff up when it bakes.  (see the picture below)
  • Place the pinwheels onto a baking sheet lined with non-stick foil or parchment paper
  • Bake 18-20 minutes until golden brown.
  • Eat Up!
