Tater Tot Casserole

I admit I was surprised at the success of the tater tot casserole. I did not expect it to turn out so tasty. Then again, part of the success of casseroles is making sure it's seasoned enough.

Brown 1.5 pounds ground meat
two slices of bacon, cut up
four cloves garlic
small onion, diced

drain fat and spread in bottom of greased casserole dish.

1 can cream of chicken
1 can cream of celery
8 oz. sour cream
half and half (I eyeballed this - I might have added 1 cup or so? enough to be creamy but not soupy)
garlic salt
pepper

pour half over meat.
Add layer of frozen corn and your choice of veggie.
Cover with layer of grated cheddar cheese.
Add layer of frozen tater tots.
Cover with second half of sauce.
Add one more layer of tots.

Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes under foil, then remove and bake another 30 minutes, add another layer of cheese on top and bake another 5 minutes or so until melted.

The tots on the top were crispy and delicious. Very flavorful. Again, I think I oversalted, but that's fixable. 3 spoons - I'd give it more but it is just a simple casserole.
