Tater Tot Hotdish

Erica Lea of Erica Lea Design Studios shares with us the mouth-watering Tater Tot Hotdish, her favorite comfort food recipe hailing from Minnesota.

I am originally from Minnesota and am used to everyone eating something called Tater Tot Hotdish. When I moved to Missouri, I realized most people don't know what it is. It's a total Minnesota winter, below freezing comfort food and it's really easy to make. Everyone that has ever eaten it loves it! When I ask my husband what he wants for dinner, he always says, "Tater Tot Hotdish!"
