But I found this fabulous recipe that was an instant hit (and super easy to prepare)!  And, it has bacon to boot!

Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Casserole

1-1/2 pounds of ground beef
1/2 pound of bacon (cooked and crumbled)
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 package (32 ounce) of frozen tater tots
1 can (10.75 ounce) of condensed cheddar cheese soup
16 ounces of sour cream

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Lightly spray a 13″ x 9″ pan with cooking spray.
3. Cook the ground beef in a large skillet until it is no longer pink and drain the fat.
4. In a large bowl, combine the cooked beef, cooked bacon pieces, cheddar cheese, tater tots, cheese soup, and sour cream.  Mix until thoroughly combined.
5. Spread this mixture into the prepared 13×9 pan.
6. Bake for 45-50 minutes (until bubbly).

In honor of one of my all-time favorite skits from Saturday Night Live (The Olympia Restaurant), here is a recipe for a Cheeseburger Pasta dish that is simple and delicious.

Cheeseburger Pasta
1-1/2 cups uncooked whole wheat penne pasta
3/4 pound of lean (90%) ground beef
2 Tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes
2 Tablespoons dill pickle relish
2 Tablespoons of prepared mustard
2 Tablespoons of ketchup
1 teaspoon of steak seasoning
1/4 teaspoon of seasoned salt
3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped green onions (optional)

  1. Cook the pasta per the directions on the package.  At the same time, in a large skillet, cook the beef and the onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain.  Drain the pasta and add it to the meat mixture.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, relish, mustard, ketchup, steak seasoning, and seasoned salt.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for about five (5) minutes.
  3. Sprinkle with cheese.  Remove from the heat; cover and let stand until the cheese is melted.  Garnish with green onions (if desired).
