Made this recipe and added our own "extras" to it after reading the reviews. LOVED the zip the sour cream gave. I used cream of mushroom soup, corn AND 2 cups of green beans & 1 medium onion, chopped to the mixture. I did saute the onions with the beef after draining the grease off. The green onions I added towards the end of the baking cycle along with the reserved cheese and we really liked it. Thanks for posting
I liked this but my hubby wasn't crazy about it. I totally forgot to add the corn but it was still tasty to me. Since hubby wasn't crazy about it I'm going to use it as a lunch option for the kids during the summer instead of for dinner. I used cream of celery soup as someone else suggested.
This was not a winner for my family. We do the "typical" TTC recipe often, so I decided to try this when I realized I was missing an ingredient for the other. I DID like some aspects...the addition of a veggie (I used corn), the sour cream, the tater tots on top, but I have to say the Cream of Chicken soup in a beef recipe skeeved me out. I did not like that. Next time, I will use Cream of Mushroom (or onion, or celery).
I liked this; the flavor was great. I tried to make this ahead and freeze it, thinking it would be a nice dish for that. However, the tater tots disentegrated into little potato pieces, instead of holding together. Maybe, if I try that trick, again, I'll freeze it, and add the tator tots after it's cooked and thawed, a little.
we had this last night for dinner and it was great! I think the sour cream and the green onions are what really set this apart from other tater tot topped casseroles. Easy to prepare. I had my older son make this before I returned home from younger son's baseball game. Served with a green salad for a complete, simple meal. Thanks, Heather, for a recipe that will definitely be reapeated at our house!
this was a very easy recipe to make and my family loved it so much i had to make it 3 times this month
