My family has been making this recipe, since I can remember. We love this, and men/boys can't get enough of it! Good stick to your ribs meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. In a skillet brown the hamburger with the onions and garlic powder; drain.
  3. Place hamburger mixture in the bottom of your casserole dish. On top of that, layer your cream of mushroom soup. Next layer your drained sweet corn.
  4. Place your tater tots on top, one by one, trying to get it one layer deep, but as close together as possible.
  5. Next sprinkle as much of the cheese as you want on top.
  6. Bake for 1 hour.

This recipe is so easy and so tasty! I'm just learning to cook, at 24, and this is the first not-out-of-a-box dinner I feel confident making without help. I substituted lean ground turkey for the beef and low-sodium celery soup for the mushroom soup.

This is a good standby casserole recipe that is easy to prepare with ingredients you are likely to have on hand. I didn't have tater tots - but I did have french fries to top it off and they worked just as well. Thank-you for posting!
