Thank you for this wonderfully simple recipe! As others have mentioned previously - I used lean ground turkey instead and mixed in some Lipton Onion Soup Mix. I also threw in a can of mixed vegetables. WONDERFUL!
this was an awesome casserole great taste easy to make i too browned the beef i added green beans,frozen peas and mushrooms next time i think i will add the cheese thanks for sharin this great easy dish
Now I have made this two times!! Got great reviews from adults and children!! Sure is nice to have something children and adults eat and have fun. Thank You!!
I have made this a few times now and totally love it! It's comfort food at it's best. I prefer to cook my beef first though to drain off the extra fat. I add green beans, mushrooms, thin sliced potatoes, brocolli...what ever I have in the fridge to give it some extra nutrition. The family loves it EVERY time! TY for the great go-to
I have a secret love of tater tots but I've never made this casserole before. Clearly, we've been missing out. Mine was u-g-l-y but ugly tasted soooo good. I halved this recipe and into the beef I mixed some leftover beefy onion soup mix. Added the soup, topped with cheese then tater tots (regular flavor). I can't wait to make this again next week. The only thing I will do differently (and this is just personal pref.) is try to buy the very leanest g. beef I can find and I won't top with cheese until it's done cooking. Mine was very greasy so I tried to pour some off to no avail. Thanks for sharing, this one is a keeper for us! (and my 7lb bag of tots :)
Yum! Every typical man would love this - cheese, meat, and potatoes. What else could a guy ask for??? :D
Quite good. I did not press the meat into the pan, just sprinkled it; tucked some green olives in.) I added a bit of garlic powder, salt and pepper to the meat beforehand and mixed it well. I did spread a can of green cut green beans on top of the meat. Next time will try either corn or peas.
This is a terrific recipe and it so QUICK AND INEXPENSIVE.. This is the perfect tator tot casserole. Thank you so much for posting.
This was pretty good. I liked that i didn't have to precook the meat, but it was more a meat pattie when it was finished. Maybe i packed it too much, though i did it lightly. I also added shredded cheddar. I will try again and pack it looser and may change the review. Thanks.
Amazingly, this was enjoyed by my entire family. That almost never happens with new recipe finds. I only had 2 cans of cheddar cheese soup on hand and used it. It was phenomenal! I see endless possibilities of variations in the horizon. Thanks for sharing this new comfort type food.
