I always like to read reviews on a recipe before making it and I'm glad I did in this case because it has made this simple dish, taste phenomenal. Firstly, I cannot believe someone tried to make this without cooking the meat first--I was under the impression that was Cooking 101 common sense. Secondly I substituted Cream of Chicken for the Celery, I also added half of a chopped onion and garlic powder in lieu of garlic. After cooking the ground beef and onion, I mixed it with both of the soup mixtures and 1 cup of 2% milk. I then layered mild cheddar cheese on top of that and then on the very top I put the frozen tater tots. There is no need to thaw them. I baked it at 375 for 60 minutes. The tater tots were nice and crispy with cheese oozing around them--and it was absolutely delicious. I am making it tonight, for the second time in two weeks. I will definitely make it again---and again.

I will never make this recipe again without browning the hamburger first!! I baked this for almost 2 1/2 hours and the hamburger was still NOT done! Tasted Great, but not willing to wait 2 1/2 hrs to eat it!

I made this with a few changes. I didn't add the milk, I used one can of cream of chkn, and one can of cream of mushroom. I layered the ground beef on the bottom, then the soup mixture, then I added a mixture of frozen vegetables (thawed), followed by about 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, and finally, the tator tots on top. Baked for close to an hour. It's one of our favorites.

I modified this slightly and my husband and I agreed it was delicious. The kids even liked it. I added a small chopped onion to the beef, a can of french cut green beans to the soup and milk mixture, and french fried onions to the top. I baked it for 30 minutes covered (so the onions wouldn't burn) and another 30 minutes uncovered. This was really good. I think the garlic powder gave it some extra flavor.

You obviously have to cook the hamburg first. I substituted the can of milk with 2% milk and used a can of cream of chicken soup instead of the celery. The tater tots do not need to be thawed either. Also the last 1/2 hour of baking I added french fried onions. It was really good!!

This was good... it also made good leftovers. I browned the meat first, put it in the bottom, covered with soup mixture and a can of green beans and about a cup of shredded cheddar. Then I topped with the tater tots.

The recipe was very bland. It needed something to spice it up. We may play with the recipe and try adding some things such as cheese, onions, or green peppers.

I thought this was a great recipe. Like others, I browned the hamburger first and added green beans and shredded cheese to the recipe. I brought it as a side dish to a family barbecue and everyone loved it!
