Ingredients:

  • 1 (32 oz.) bag tater tots
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 (8 oz.) packages cubed ham
  • 4 Tbsp. flour
  • 3 c. milk
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard powder
  • 1 tsp. Nature’s Seasoning
  • 2 small heads of broccoli, slightly steamed
  • 3 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

  1. Bake tater tots until extra crispy and golden brown according to package directions. The crunchier the better since we are pouring a semi-liquid on top which could cause soggy potatoes. Remove from oven and bump heat down to 375*.
  2. In a large pot over medium-high heat, melt butter and add in onions. Saute until the onions begin to brown and add in cubed ham. Allow to cook for about 5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle flour into pot and stir until combined. Let flour cook for a few minutes (watch carefully for scorching on bottom of pan) and then whisk in the milk and seasonings.
  4. Once the mixture has slightly thickened, add in 2 cups of the shredded cheese and allow to melt.
  5. Place broccoli on top of tater tots and pour cheese mixture over the broccoli. Top with remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese.
  6. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Yields 10 servings.

Eat, Bork, and Be Merry!
