One of my favorite meat and potato dishes that is sooo simple to make and really yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 12 onion (optional)
  • 10 12 ounces cream of mushroom soup (one can)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 lb tater tots (about half a bag of Ore-Ida Brand)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 450.
  2. Brown the ground beef in a skillet until thoroughly cooked.
  3. drain off excess grease.
  4. Transfer ground beef back into skillet and add the can of cream of mushroom soup, salt and pepper; stir until mixed evenly.
  5. Pour beef mixture into casserole dish and add tater tots to the top, spreading an even layer.
  6. Bake for 35 minutes.
  7. ENJOY!
  8. *Ground the beef with the onion; chopped. Tastes really good with the onion but I've left it out for friends with Onion Allergies and I still LOVE it!

Fairly tasty, I think the ground beef would be more flavorable if I added garlic and perhaps a splash of worcestershire sauce. Did serve ketchup on the side for dipping July 15, 2010

I have been making this for years, kids love it. I always top with shredded cheese. Also, try seasoning the ground meat with cumin while frying

Thoroughly enjoyed as did my husband. Although he requested that I not call it "casserole" as he in general hates that word and all it entails (too many ingredients is never a good thing to a picky eater). You could sneak veggies into this (if you dare) in the form of carrots or corn or green beans.
