Cheddar Taters

I'm at it again! I tried a new recipe from my new cookbook again. Here it is:

Cheddar Taters
  • 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 package (32 oz.) frozen Tater Tots
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup crushed potato chips
In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Gently stir in the Tater Tots. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese and potato chips. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until bubbly. Yield:8-10 servings.

I made a couple small changes to the recipe when I made it. I used garlic salt and onion salt instead of garlic powder and onion powder. (I didn't have any.) I also only used 1 serving of potato chips and only 1 cup of cheddar cheese to cut back on calories a bit. I divided it into about 10 servings and it still ended up being nearly 400 calories a serving, but it is worth it! Rich and I both agreed that it was delicious and the kids both ate it and like it! :-) It tastes a lot like cheesy potatoes, but even more flavorful! The only thing I didn't like was I didn't plan anything else to go with it and it isn't much of a meal. It would be a great dish to take to a potluck, though!

I haven't been giving credit to my great new cookbook like I should be. The Onion Cheese Biscuits, the Pepperoni Pizza Muffins and this recipe all came from Taste of Home's 2004 Quick Cooking Annual Recipes cookbook. Thank you Taste of Home for the great recipes!

Is it really worth running 4 miles to burn it off again?
