Tater Tot and Wild Rice Hot Dish Casserole

Ingredients

1 cup of prepared wild rice (see instructions below)
1 pound of ground turkey
1/2 pound of turkey sausage
1 can of chicken broth
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
2 chopped celery stalks
1/2 chopped white onion
1 bag large of tater tots
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)

Preparation

1
Wash the wild rice thoroughly to eliminate any chaff
2
In a pot, soften the rice (less than 2 parts water, 1 part rice), bringing rice to a boil for 5 minutes, then simmering on low-medium for 20 minutes (You don’t want the rice to have split yet or to be mushy in consistency, so watch it carefully)
3
Brown the meats, drain grease
4
Brown the celery and onion (I use a little of the grease from the sausage)
5
Combine the meats, celery and onion, rice, chicken broth, cream of mushroom and pour into a casserole dish (You’re going to want about an inch and half depth of casserole, so make sure it’s a big dish)
6
Bake covered at 350 for 1 ½ hours
7
Remove from oven, top with tater tots and bake for another 30 minutes, covered
8
Remove from oven and add mozzarella and bake uncovered for 10 minutes
