2 lbs. ground beef
1 large onion, chopped and divided
1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
1 8-oz package of Velveeta processed cheese
1 Tbsp ground mustard
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
12 bacon strip, cooked and crumbled
1 package (32 oz.) frozen Tater Tots
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef and 1 cup onions, crumbling beef until it is no longer pink and onions are tender, 6 – 8 minutes. Drain. Stir in tomato sauce, Velveeta cheese, mustard and Worcestershire sauce until cheese is melted.
- Transfer to a greased 13X9-inch or 3.5-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and bacon. Top with Tater Tots. Bake, uncovered, 35-40 minutes or until bubbly.
- Serve with diced tomatoes, pickles and remaining onions in bowls. Some people like to offer shredded lettuce, too.
To make this an after church meal, prep the day ahead but do not add the Tater Tots. Cover and keep in refrigerator. Upon arriving home, turn on the oven then take casserole from refrigerator and add the Tater Tots. Place in oven and serve a light snack of maybe grapes or carrot sticks while waiting for lunch to be ready.
