Easy Turtles

These little candies are so cute, and they take hardly any time at all to make. They're especially fun to make at Christmas time.

Waffle pretzels, round or square
1 bag Rolo candies
1 bag pecan halves

Line a baking sheet with wax paper and arrange as many pretzels on top as you have Rolo candies. Place an unwrapped Rolo in the very center of each pretzel and bake at 250° for 4 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a pecan half on top, pressing down firmly. Allow to cool.

Potato Ole Hotdish

Here's a new twist on an old favorite - Tator Tot Hotdish. We like eating at Taco John's, and their Potato Oles are always a big hit with us. When I got this recipe, I knew we'd all love it before we even tried it! See what you think!

1# hamburger
1/4 C. taco seasoning
2/3 C. water
11 oz. Nacho Cheese soup
15 oz. Mexicorn, drained
Tator tots

Brown hamburger and onion; drain. Stir in taco seasoning and water; simmer over low heat for 15-20 minutes. Stir in soup, then spread in 9x13 glass pan and sprinkle with corn. Arrange tator tots on top. Bake at 325° for an hour, or until bubbly and tator tots are golden brown.
