Servings: 8 servings
- 32 ounces Tater Tots frozen
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 cups yellow onion chopped (I used 1 large onion)
- 2 cups ham diced (I used 1 ham steak)
- 4 tbsp flour
- 3 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried mustard powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 4 cups broccoli fresh, chopped
- 3 cups extra sharp Cheddar cheese shredded (about 12 ounces)
Bake tater tots on baking sheet according to package instructions.
While tater tots are cooking in the oven, saute onions in butter in 8 quart pot over high heat. As soon as the first onions start to turn golden, add the diced ham. Let the onion and ham cook in the butter for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the onion mixture and stir. Allow flour to cook for a couple of minutes, then add the milk, garlic powder, mustard powder, salt & pepper. Stir with a wooden spoon, removing any bits that may have stuck to the bottom of the pan.
Continue to cook and stir the milk gravy until it thickens, about 5 minutes. Add the broccoli and 2 cups of the cheese, reserving the remaining 1 cup. Transfer the tater tots to a 9x13 baking dish and pour the ham and broccoli mixture over the tots.
Sprinkle remaining cheddar cheese on top.
Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 20-25 minutes until melted and bubbly. Serve hot. YUM!
