My mother didn't cook often when we were small, so when she did it was special. There is nothing fancy about this meal, but it tastes soooo good. I do not eat mushrooms, but you would never know they are in this dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven 400°.
  2. Brown ground beef; drain fat.
  3. Add cream of mushroom to beef in pan (follow directions on can, adding either milk or water, reduced by 1/2 of one can).
  4. Place tater tots in 10x13 baking dish evenly.
  5. Pour beef soup over tots.
  6. Season to taste.
  7. Top evenly w/cheese.
  8. Bake 40 minutes or until cheese is melted in center, lightly golden. Let sit 5 minutes to settle.

Good quick dinner. My cheese browned more than I would have liked, but that was easily fixed by putting some reynolds wrap on top of it. Next time I might just add the cheese later on in the cooking process.
