Ham and Cheese Tater Tot Casserole

This post brought to you by Crystal Farms Cheese. The content and opinions expressed below are that of this mama loves.

One of my family’s favorite meals is tater tot casserole but sometimes we get tired of the same old thing week after week so I try to mix it up but keep their favorites in rotation. This week I gave our tater tot casserole a makeover by using the flavors from another family favorite-ham and cheese sandwiches to switch out the flavor a bit. It was a big hit and I wanted to share it with you, give it a try and see if your family enjoys it as much as mine did! ham-cheese-tater-tot-casserole-label
