Yes I used a little water also, and tater tots to cover and bake. We loved this easy dish, and I started it in an oven proof skillet so clean up was a easy also. Made for PAC Spring 2008
I only had 300g of pom poms because it was the only box left in the store, but it still covered the whole pie. Very tasty!
I made this recipe as directed....although I am not sure what you meant by frozen potatoes. I used frozen potato puffs, actually "Ore-Ida Tater Tots". The description of poms poms stirred me in that direction. I did add a little milk to the cream of chicken soup to thin it slightly....almost 1/2 can. I used frozen broccoli, and heated everything but the potatoes together, before pouring into my casserole dish. It was well recieved by my daughter and her children at supper. Thanks for posting such a quick and easy recipe, we will be sure to make this again.
