My mom used to make this for me and my (much younger brother) every time i would babysit. It's become traditional when I see my brothers, I've only added two things to her original recipe, cheese, and corn.

Feb 24, 2009: Here's an update on my previous review. I have since made this dish twice more since I wrote the first review. The second time I made it I used tater tots as the recipe called for and we didn't care for it as well - the inside of the tots were hot but mushy. The third time, I used a mallot and crushed the tater tots before I layered them on top. I also added some extra spices to the soup mixture (beef boullion, parsley, coarse ground pepper and a dash of cayenne). We liked the flavor much better and the potatoes on the top had a nice crunch. April 27, 2008: I didn't have any tater tots so I used frozen french fries and it worked just great. I also used frozen (thawed) corn instead of canned. It was a nice change from the same old same old. Even my picky 8-yr old son ate it without complaining!
