Happy Birthday America!
(240 years and counting)
Today we celebrate Independence Day! A special day for all Americans. Also today is the birthday of one of my many cousins. If T were still around today, she would be 36. Instead she is smiling down on us from Heaven.
For lunch today I wanted to make an All American meal (ie, Tacos---just kidding, maybe). I made some sloppy joes (kinda) instead. This recipe was perfect! "Best filling ever!"
Sloppy Tot Casserole
adapted from: http://realhousemoms.com/sloppy-joe-casserole/
1 pound ground beef
1 large onion, diced
1 (8oz) can no salt tomato sauce
1 (14oz) Pork and Beans
2 T mustard
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 t season-all
fresh ground pepper (about 1/2 t)
2 pounds tater tots
2 cups shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400. Grease a 9x13pan well. In a large skillet, brown beef with onion with a little bacon grease. (Drain fat if necessary). Add remaining ingredients except for tater tots and cheese. Simmer 10 minutes. Pour into prepared pan. Top with cheese. Then layer tater tots on top. Bake about 30-45minutes (depending how crispy you want your tots).
