frugal recipe // leftover tater tot casserole

There are only two of us in our household, not including the dogs, and one night Kyle made dinner. A dream, right? Well, he cooked the entire bag of tater tots. I love potatoes, but I can only eat so many tots. So we had a fairly large amount of them left over in a container in the fridge. They sat for a couple days and they weren't amazing heated back up. Thus, this dish was born. Here's how I made it!

Leftover Tater Tot Casserole
Tater tots
3 eggs, whisked together
Leftover cubed cheddar, cut into smaller pieces
2 tbsp butter, diced
Pepper, to taste
Garlic powder, to taste
Paprika, to taste
Sour Cream, for serving

Preheat oven to 350. In an oven safe dish, spread the tater tots along the bottom. Whisk together the eggs and pour over the tots. Stir to coat. Dice the butter and cubed cheddar and spread evenly across the potatoes. Put into the oven for 25 minutes or until cheese has melted. Serve with sour cream.

That's it! You could easily modify this to suit your needs. Add whatever leftover meat you have, more egg, different spices. It was tasty and we didn't toss out those tots!
