    Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:

    My mom found this "contest winning recipe" in the local newspaper in the '70's and I've enjoyed this recipe since. It's very comforting and kid-friendly the way the fried onions blend with the creamy filling. It's something I make for the flavor and not because it is so easy!

      Really good! Looking at the seasonings I thought my family would like more. I sprinkled the potatoes with seasoned salt, garlic powder, and a good dose of black pepper. This would taste good with some spice too. I used 1/2lb of ground beef b/c that's what I had on hand and it was plenty. I used cream of chicken b/c that's what I had on hand. I added a small can of drained mushrooms, pieces and stems. I didn't put any cheese on top, just the rest of the onions. Loved the broccoli and tomatoes in this! It really is a nice looking casserole and way better than the mushy "hot dishes" that I don't care for. Thanks for a great recipe! My alterations are truly to taste and/or availability.

      This was a good dish for dinner, but not stellar. My family gave it 3 stars based purely on taste. I would give it less (!) for the amount of work and fuss, but I thought the taste was great. However, it's a "heavy" casserole - one serving sort of lands with a thud in the gut. I followed the recipe exactly. All the elements: the freshly steamed broccoli, the freshly chopped plum tomatoes, the cooking times (in and out of the oven) etc. It was a lot to keep track of as I put it together, and that was annoying, because I knew this wasn't going to be top-notch gourmet fare. On the upside, it was a very pretty casserole. But after all the glowing rave reviews, I felt a little deflated with this. Apparently my family did too. Sorry!

      Can't believe I haven't rated this yet nor am I sure If my changes are too much for me to rate this recipe. I halved recipe. Used 1/4 lb ground beef personal preference don't like lots of meat., 2 cups broccoli, 1 can french fried onions, 1 can cream of mushroom soup 1/2 cup milk 3/4 cup cheddar cheese. 1 italian tomato, 1/2 tsp mince garlic, 1/2 tsp seasoning salt, 1/2 tsp celery salt (I used beau monde but it is part celery salt part onion salt. I used potato crowns as they appealed to me more than tater tots. I forgot to use the seasoned pepper. But it turned out yummy :yummy:
