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.

I made it with ground turkey and it was great. Next time I will add french fried onions!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 118.29-236.59 ml milk
  • 473.18 ml shredded cheddar cheese

  2. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Line the bottom of an 11x13 rectangular baking dish with the frozen tater tots.
  4. Layer the browned ground meat next, then the green beans.
  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. Pour mixture on top of the green beans and spread around to coat the top of the casserole.
  7. Top with the shredded cheddar cheese.
  8. Bake for 30-45 minutes until casserole is bubbly and the cheese is melted and starting to brown.
