My Tater Tot Casserole "Skillet Style"
1.5 -2 lbs of tater tots
2 lbs of ground elk meat
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 cup of chopped onions or shallots

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
On a medium-high heat brown onions or shallots in a 12" cast iron pan then add your ground meat, worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and a pinch of salt and pepper. Allow this to brown before adjusting your salt and pepper to taste and remove from the heat
Add mushroom soup and green beans and stir in well.
Top with the cheese of your choice, I used cheddar and mozzarella in this example.
top the whole thing with as much tater tots as you can safely place and bake for 45 to 60 minutes.
Allow it to cool for 10 to 15 minutes (add a little parsley optional)then serve and Enjoy!
