Tater Tot Casserole With Veggies

Recipe by ChaCha Junior

My DH was feeling nostalgic for foods of his youth. After an online search (and some tinkering) we came up with this winner! Ore-Ida Crispy Crowns work better than plain old Tots if you like this crispy.

This is tasty!! I like that it has lots of veggies!! I used a white onion and I put a bunch of pepper in while I was cooking it and the beef. I did not put salt because I knew that soup would have plenty. I also decided to sprinkle the rest of the cheese after it came out of the oven instead of baking it on top. I used a 16 oz bag of frozen country vegetables and it fit perfectly!!! Also, I had gotten a 32 oz bag of the tots because it was a good sale and I ended up using 3/4 of the bag to top the 2 qt casserole so I was glad I had that! We ended up putting a little ketchup with this, not because it needed it, but because of the tater tots! This was yummy and I liked that it wasn't heavy because you have a chance to drain the meat while adding it to the casserole! Thanks for a great easy Saturday night meal!!!!
