My husband made this quick and easy week night dinner for us when it seemed like we had nothing to eat.  You know the nights, when you look in the fridge and there appears to be nothing. This is a variation of a midwest classic that we found yummy and comforting as our nights are getting longer and days are getting cooler.  With few ingredients, you can make this Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole too!
