Traditional Minnesotan soul food. Anyone can make this and everyone will love this. Promise! Hint: Try to make it your own by varying the veggies, using ground turkey or meatless crumble, or using different cream soups. This is the way my dad made it when I was little...
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 (8 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
- 2 (8 ounce) cans green beans
- 1 (28 ounce) package frozen tater tots
- Brown ground beef in a skillet.
- Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a casserole (glass baking dish) with nonstick spray.
- Mix veggies, cream soup, and meat in casserole.
- Top with tater tots.
- Bake for 1 hour.
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!
