3 Easy Man Dishes

I’m not much of a cook, but there are three dishes I can make on whim for a football party or get together. My wife calls them my man dishes. Each of the dishes is similar so ingredients work well for making multiple variations.

Tater Tot Hotdish

This dish has been a stalwart in my cooking repertoire since it I first learned the recipe. We best start off with the supplies:

  • Tater tots
  • 1 lb of ground beef (leaner the better)
  • 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can of french style green beans
  • 1/2 cup of milk

Set the oven to 350F so it preheats while you get the dish ready. Cook the ground beef and break it up into small pieces. Make sure to cook the beef thoroughly but to not overdo it as the dish will finish up in the oven. Dump the beef into a large mixing bowl along with the cream of mushroom soup, milk, and the green beans. Stir up all the ingredients and dump the mixture into a casserole dish. Place the tater tots on top and set the dish in the oven for about 45 minutes. The tater tots will be golden brown when it is finished cooking.
