    Categories: Beef, Vegetables, Potatoes, Cheese
    Yield: 6 servings

    2 lb Ground beef
    3/4 c Sliced sweet pickles;
    - chopped
    1 sm Onion; chopped
    1 cl Garlic; minced
    1 1/2 c Thousand Island salad
    - dressing; divided
    1 ts Salt
    1/2 ts Pepper
    32 oz Bag frozen Tater Tots
    2 1/2 c Shredded cheddar cheese;
    - divided

    Set the oven @ 350ºF/175ºC.

    Grease a 13" X 9" baking dish. I like to grease pans
    with softened butter, but you could also use olive oil
    or a neutral oil such as grape seed, sunflower or

    Place your Dutch oven over medium heat and add the
    ground beef, pickles, onion and garlic. Cook, stirring,
    until the onions have softened and the beef is no longer
    pink, 6-8 minutes. While you’re stirring, make sure to
    break up bigger hunks of ground beef into smaller

    Remove the beef mixture from the heat and stir in 1 cup
    of the salad dressing and the salt and pepper. Then, add
    the frozen Tater Tots and 2 cups of the shredded cheddar
    cheese. Mix everything together and pour the combo into
    the greased baking dish.

    Bake, uncovered, until the Tots are hot, around 35-40
    minutes. Top with the remaining cheese, and bake until
    the cheese is melted, an additional 5 minutes. Drizzle
    the top of the casserole with the extra 1/2 cup
    dressing, garnish with extra pickles if desired, and
