A Healthy Tater Tot Casserole

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Casseroles are the epitome of the southern comfort food.  But they are also full of fat.  When I got engaged, one of the things I was excited to register for was the Cotton Country Cooking cookbook from the Morgan County Junior League.  I felt like it was such a rite of passage to get it.  My mom always cooked out of it and I couldn't wait to start cooking out of it for my family.  It was published in 1972 and has great recipes!  My sister pointed out a recipe in it that she had made, and I knew that I could make it healthy so that Dustin and I could enjoy it too!

This is a recipe that takes little to no time to prep.  The only think you have to wait on is cook time--but it's worth it!

Tater Tot Casserole (the healthy version)

1 lb lean ground turkey, uncooked
1 small onion (yellow or white), diced
1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
1 can 98% fat free cream of celery soup
bag of frozen tater tots
1/2 can water

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. With a spatula, evenly spread your turkey over the bottom of a 9x13 pan
3. Spread your diced onion over the turkey
4. Spread your cream of chicken soup over the onions
5. Evenly spread the frozen tater tots next
6. Spread the cream of celery soup over the tater tots
7. Pour 1/2 can of water over the casserole
8. Bake for 90 minutes!

I took this after we had eaten.  It's good!

We've got yet another snow day, so I probably will spend all day baking out of being bored!  Hopefully the warm weather gets here soon!!
