One kind of casserole that I can’t go wrong making at my house is Cowboy Casserole. Bring on the tater tots and don’t forget the cheese! My cowboy casserole recipe is something that all of my family just LOVES and usually there is no leftovers.
The recipe I had found originally called for Cream of Mushroom soup. I am the only one in my family who will eat mushrooms so I used Cream Of Broccoli instead which is just as good. Below is the recipe for this yummy Cowboy Casserole that my whole family LOVES…

In a skillet add onion and vegetable oil. Cook for a couple minutes until the onions are soft and tender.
Add ground beef to skillet and garlic salt. Cook over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain excess fat and set aside.
In a bowl add the cream of broccoli, milk and sour cream, corn and half of the shredded cheese. Add mixture to beef mixture and stir to blend mixtures.
