I looked through my recipe box and decided that my All American Cheeseburger Ring would be delicious to turn into a casserole. It was a total hit and was extremely easy and delicious.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. I personally think it's perfect for a quick weeknight meal.
Here's what you need:
for a 7 x 11 dish ( Serves 4-6)
1 Lb. ground chuck or beef ( I use an 85/15 for more flavor)
3 Tbs. yellow onion, minced
6 crescent rolls
1 cup Colby Jack cheese, divided, pre-shredded is fine
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tsp. mustard
1/2 - 2/3 of a 2 Lb. bag of tater tots, frozen is fine
For a 9 x 13 baking dish
(serves 8-10 ) follow the instructions for the 7 x 11 using the amounts for the 9 x 13
2 Lbs. ground chuck or beef (I use an 85/15 for the most flavor)
1/4-1/3 cup yellow onion, minced
1 tube crescent rolls
1-1/2 cup Colby Jack cheese, divided, pre-shredded is fine
1/2 cup ketchup
1 Tbs. mustard
2 Lbs. bag of tater tots, frozen is fine
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray and arrange the crescent rolls to completely cover the bottom (sideways for 7 x 11, long ways for 9 x 13) pressing the seams to seal, set aside.
In a large skillet brown the ground beef with the onions until the meat is no longer pink.
Next add the ketchup, mustard and 3/4 of the cheese (leaving the rest for the topping) and stir to completely combine.
Evenly pour the meat mixture over the crescent rolls and top evenly with the tater tots.
Bake for 30 minutes. Then sprinkle remaining cheese over the top of the tater tots and continue baking for an additional 7 - 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Here is the wonderful Cheeseburger Tater Tot Casserole straight out of the oven.
This was a super easy, super tasty dinner that will now be added to my weeknight round-up.
7 x 11 serves 4-6 or more depending on how big you cut the pieces
