Tater Tot Hotdish

Mike was on his way home from work a couple days ago and called me on his way to have me preheat the oven to 450 degrees. I got excited thinking he was going to whip up something spectacular, he didn't. However, he did whip up an awesome tater tot hot dish - especially considering he had never actually seen a written recipe.

2 can cream of mushroom
1/2 white onion, diced
1 lb. ground turkey
3/4 corn
3/4 cup peas
tator tots - to taste (his words people, not mine!)
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. chili powder

Mike did it a little differently than I would have. Bake the tater tots until they are golden brown per the package instructions. While those are baking brown the ground turkey, drain the grease, and then add the onion and cook until translucent. Add in the remaining ingredients and heat through.

Dish up the mixture in the skillet, stir in a few tater tots and top with a few more. He didn't want to bake the tater tots on top, because they always seem to end up soggy.

I swear it was good mom and Marty would love it (hint hint)!!
