Ya sure....this is truly one of the best comfort foods here in Minnesota! I usually add 1/2 chopped onion while browning the meat. I have also used the Veg-All vegetables, and if I have shredded cheddar in the house, that goes on top of the tater tots the last 5-10 minutes. You really can't mess this recipe up! Oh, I do add 1/3 can of milk or water to the soup mix. Yum!

Excellent dish. I topped it with some shredded cheddar cheese five minutes before removing it fromthe oven and that was delcious too.

It is a very versatile recipe. One of my roommates who is Native American from Montana made this by using canned Veg-All. Since I prefer my vegetables either fresh or frozen, I use two cups of frozen mixed vegetables Normany style from Costco for this recipe.. We even tried it with chicken. It works very well!
