This recipe is so simple and good. I love to take it to potlucks and usually come home with a empty dish.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 14 cup chopped onion
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup of grated cheese (I prefer the shredded Velveeta)
  • 1 (2 lb) bag frozen tater tots


  1. Cook beef and onions till beef is brown.
  2. Add soup and cook till soup is mixed throughly.
  3. Pour into a casserole dish.
  4. Sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Layer a single layer of tater tots on top.
  6. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes till tater tots are nice and brown.

There are a lot of recipes for tater tot casserole but this is the recipe I remember from my childhood. This is one of my husbands favorites and he often asks me to make it for him. This is usually a kid pleaser too. Just simple, classic comfort food. Thank you so much for posting.

Very good recipe and very good meal. We all liked it for a good meal in the tummy. I used Tator Crowns. Very good comfort here. Thank You for sharing with us. Hugs

I've made this exact recipe for years....a huge favorite in our house. I think the only difference is that I stand our tater tots upright...we cram them in. ;) Great tried and true recipe!!
