I have a confession to make. You may or may not want to continue to read my blog. I’m sorry in advance. Here’s goes.

I despise tater tot casserole. Like, as in strongly hate.

There I said it. Whew, that feels a lot better!I had never even heard of this dish until I married my husband. I found a recipe for this casserole in my recipe box given to me as a bridal shower gift by my Sister in Love. Maybe it was because I was pregnant with Gracie and at the time I suffered from really bad morning sickness. Maybe that’s the reason I never liked it. But whatever the reason, it’s not Josh’s poor family’s fault.

Now I like mushrooms, but cream of mushroom soup has such a strong mushroomy flavor that I have a hard time choking it down.

That was until I started watching 19 kids and Counting on Netflix while I fold laundry. In so many episodes they are constantly mentioning how much their family enjoys tater tot casserole. Well, I was intrigued, so I found the recipe and stuck it on the menu.

I HAVE BEEN REFORMED! I actually like tater tot casserole…no, I enjoyed…okay, I devoured two helpings the night I made it. Josh even admitted that it was the best one he had eaten too.

So now, it’s a family favorite. Pure comfort food at its finest with all the cream of soups and all!
