I guess I have been deprived most my life because I didn’t know that tater tot casserole existed until my husband and I went to dinner at a friends house. It was love at first bite. When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. Not only did the picture make me drool, but I love the fact that it is cooked in the slow cooker-you know me! In an attempt to make it a little bit healthier, I used turkey bacon and 1% milk. Green beans also served as a perfect side. Enjoy!
