This popped up this a.m. and remiinded me of how long it's been since I'd fixed this quick & delicious casserole. Versatile...turkey, beef, pork, lamb meats, tomato or cream based soups work, add a layer of grean beans, carrots or corn and you have a complete meal. Vary the spices & it's a new casserole each time you make it. Thanks barryzimm for bringing back one of our faves.
This was good, if a little bland. If I make it again I'll do so with tomato soup as the other reviewer suggested, or ketchup or something. I also thought it was too shallow, so I'd double the filling or use a smaller dish.
Pretty tasty stuff. I did my own thing with it though. While browning the beef I seasoned it with onion powder, garlic powder, freshly ground black pepper, and a smidge of salt. I chopped up one small onion, and after draining the beef I mixed the beef, cream of mushroom soup, and chopped onions together and let them simmer a bit. Then poured the mixture into a 10x10 casserole dish. I added sharp cheddar. Then put the tots on, then added triple cheddar shredded cheese on top of the tots. My family loved it including my 2 year old who typically doesn't eat beef!
I love this recipie. My family has used it for years. It is something thay you can even make the day before and put in your fridge. I do add a few things though, after i brown my hamburger I add fresh or canned mushrooms as well as some frozen vegetables. You can add what ever you want. I usually add corn and peas. I also put some cheese under the tatertots and a little on top of the tater tots. This allows them to get crispy.
My three toddlers are extremely picky eaters. They were begging me to make it again the next night! What a great classic. Fast and easy, too!
This is a quick and simple meal that the whole family likes. I used 2 cans cream or mushroom soup and added a can of corn. (a friend had that version of this recipe)
Very good 'on a budget' meal. added some sauteed onion, and used Lawry's seasoning salt and black pepper. Mixed some of the cheese in with the ground beef, put the rest on top and then added tater tots.Was done in 35 minutes, tater tots were crisp. Would definitely make again.
This is always a hit at potlucks or carry ins!
