(KFVS) - This week's Heartland Cook shares a family recipe that is near and dear to his heart.
Leevon DeCourley of Cape Girardeau says his Grandma Betty is well-known for her Tater Tot Casserole and all of her grandkids look forward to enjoying a big piece every holiday at Grandma Betty's house.
Last Christmas, Grandma Betty hand-wrote and framed the recipes for each of her grandchildren. It's a gift Leevon cherishes and attempts to cook in tribute to his beloved Grandma Betty.
