Made this dish last night for my family and they really liked it. It's a keeper! I added some shredded cheese on top of the meat mixture and also some garlic powder with the salt and pepper. Yummy!!
This is comfort food at it's comfyest! I really enjoyed this much more than I thought I would when I first decided to make it. The simplicity of it as well as the inexpensiveness of it make it a good meal for family. I will definitely add this to my regular recipes that I make often. By the way, I used the cream of mushroom soup that has roasted garlic in it.
Very good. Instead of onions and celery, I browned my meat in onion soup mix. I also added chedder cheese.
I have made this for years. It is a very quick meal for working mothers that have hungry kids to feed quickly. I haven't made it in a long time because my kids are no longer at home, but in a pinch for time I might just make it again. A salad and rolls are all that is needed to complete the meal.
I'd never heard of it til our daughter was telling me about her Aunt Sherry making it, so I decided to give it a try. We all really enjoyed the combination of the tater tots, ground beef and mushroom soup! This is definitely a fast & simple-to-make "keeper". This does make a lot, so next time I'd halve the recipe for the 3 of us, except I'd still use a whole can of mushroom soup, because we like our casseroles with lots of sauce.
Just what I had in mind.
Try it upside down :) My mom made this for us when we were kids--she always put the tater tots on top and poured the soup over the top.
excellent, well written recipe. now for the usual "how i changed your masterpiece", i added frozen peas because i feel that peas are needed and i had to take out the celery since i didn't have any. instead of beef I used ground turkey in an attempt at being healthy. all in all, super tasty and perfect on these cold winter nights. thanks for posting :)
We didn't have any tater tots but we were CRAVING this. SO, I peeled some potatoes and shredded them and used the shredded potatoes in place of the tater tots. I also added garlic salt in with the hamburger and cheese on top of the finished casserole. YUM!
