Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole

What is it about the word, sloppy, in Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole that makes it sound so wonderful? And why is it that food where we have to lick our fingers and thumbs, and that spills on our shirts, always tastes best? It is a curious thing. Ice cream is another food that tastes best in the heat of summer, when it is melting and slopping all over our shirts. Mangoes are a fruit that does the same thing, and to a lesser degree, so is watermelon. So there are plenty of foods that taste super, and especially so, when they are dripping down our chins, shirts and fingers. This dish is one of them.

Of course, the way to keep yourself clean is either to not eat this stuff (a non option) or to always eat it with towels under your chin. That is how we do it at our house. I have a wide assortment of various towels that we pull out whenever we are going to feast on some thing delightfully sloppy (and you can tell we do it enough that we actually have towels on hand for that purpose!). So try this tater tot recipe that combines the light crunch and sweet butter flavor of tater tots with Sloppy Joes. How could this dish go wrong? Of course, if you really enjoy your Sloppy Joes on bread, you might prefer it without the tater tots. But this is a tater tot recipe, and just another way to get that fabulous dish, Sloppy Joes, on to the family meal plan.

This dish is quick, easy, and cheap. Make it whenever you feel the need for some real comfort food. Here you get two kinds of comfort food, Sloppy Joes and tater tots. And many of the ingredients are pre-packaged. You take a bit of time to brown the beef and onions and just add the rest. This dish will be very much appreciated by your family. And you, because it will come together quickly, and you can get on to other things in your day. Enjoy this meal soon and thank you to Buns In My Oven for this delicious looking recipe.
