    The surprise is that this is delicious! This comes from my friend, Shawna, and is ridiculously easy to make. It seems to get even better the second day.

    Serves: 10



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (2 lb) package frozen frozen tater tots
    • 1 lb ground turkey or 1 lb ground beef
    • 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans cut green beans
    • 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
    • 1/2-1 cup milk
    • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


    1. 1
      Brown ground turkey (or beef), season to taste (Johnny's Seasoning Salt is very good for this, but salt and pepper will do nicely), drain and set aside.
    2. 2
      Heat oven to 425 degrees.
    3. 3
      Line the bottom of an 11x13 rectangular baking dish with the frozen tater tots.
    4. 4
      Layer the browned ground meat next, then the green beans.
    5. 5
      In a bowl or large measuring cup mix the soup and enough milk that when mixed with the soup makes it easy to pour but not excessively runny.
    6. 6
      Pour mixture on top of the green beans and spread around to coat the top of the casserole.
    7. 7
      Top with the shredded cheddar cheese.
    8. 8
      Bake for 30-45 minutes until casserole is bubbly and the cheese is melted and starting to brown.

      I made this almost as a joke, and thought it would be horrendous, as we are not used to eating processed food (we call it 'factory food'...) BUT this was actually good. I modified it slighty, by using cream of chicken soup instead of the cream of mushroom, and also by using ham instead of ground beef. I used frozen green beans, which actually retained their pretty green color. The top was golden brown and looked amazing.
      With the salt from the ham, tots and cheese, I did not add any salt. Didn't miss it, either.
      My hubbie hates processed food and will never set foot in a McDonalds, but he really enjoyed this.. I will definitely make this again!!!
