Here is an excellent optional recipe: Use Ground turkey instead of ground beef to lower fat content. Mix cream of mushroom, browned turkey, 1/2 bag of frozen mixed veggies, 3 tablespoons of sourcream, 2 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce, Janes Crazy salt (or salt), pepper all into a large a sauce pan. Cook for ~ 5 minutes until all is very hot. Stir often. Pour into caserole dish. Layer on top of mix with low fat/non fat Colby jack (or mozarella for stretchy kid fun). Layer frozen tater tots on top of cheese. Bake at 375 for 1 hour (or until Tater tots are golden brown). My kids love it! You can also add BBQ sauce if your kids like that.
I really enjoy this easy dish.. I come home on lunch and set it up go back to work and have a great meal that's easy.. Leftovers are a treat also. Tip add a little can of chopped green chili's in with the beef adds a nice bite.
I make this recipe all the time and bake it in the oven. When I was put on 2nd shift, I scrambled to find crockpot recipes so that I could have a hot meal for my husband and son when they got home in the evenings. I was glad to find a crockpot adaptation to an old favorite! This got rave reviews too! The only changes I made was I used 1 medium chopped onion instead of the dried onion and I had them sprinkle shredded cheddar on it a few minutes before they ate it! Great recipe and thanks for posting!!!
