"This is my son's favorite dinner. OK, I will admit....I think it's kinda good too!"
Serving Size: 1 (275 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"OHHHH my goodness! this is awesome! And for those of you concerned about the green beans as I was....don't be! As a matter of fact I think I'll add 2 cans next time! Thanks for sharing your recipe! Absolutely delicious!!!"
"I pretty much followed the recipe, but I can see that it really is a jumping off point for creating different tastes. This was a hit with my husband and myself."
"I noticed when I made this that the texture of condensed soup seems to have changed recently... and perhaps that is what caused this dish to taste so salty. I followed the directions exactly, and I think everyone would have enjoyed it had it not been for the over-salted flavor. My husband and I ate a small portion, but both kids took one bite and asked for mac & cheese in the microwave. :("
"This was delicious! I made this for my boyfriend and I and I halfed the recipe so we wouldn't have a ton of leftovers. Since I halfed the recipe I only used a can of cream of chicken soupe and I omitted the cream of mushroom soup. I did, however, use a whole can of green beans still though. Awesome recipe!! We'll definately be making this again!"
"We made three meals out of this--just two of us. I liked it but DH really liked it. The second nite he said you have to make this again. The third nite I said this is really good. I did spice it up with a little Italian seasoning. Very good and easy recipe. Thank you."
"Thumb's up from this family!! This was really tasty and sooo easy to make. I substituted ground turkey for the beef and carmelized the onion before adding the garlic. I also used 2 cans of green beans, as other reviewers suggested. I'll be making this again, for sure! Thanks for sharing, Tiny_Toodles!"
"I made this making a minor change, I used Crispy Crowns instead of full sized tater tots. My husband raved on this. Recipe is very good and very easy to make. Thanks for sharing, we will make this again!"
"So easy! Very good! My 16 month old son loved it too! I had a 32oz bag of tots and 2 cans cream of mushroom soup, so it wasn't as saucy I guess. I didn't have green beans and I took the salt down to 1/2 Tbs. Yummy and will be making it a regular dinner! Thanks for sharing!"
"Loved this. Both my hubby and son had three helpings. I did change this up a bit. I didn't add the green beans to the casserole but served them on the side. I omited the salt and only used 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Hubby thought it could have used the full teaspoon though. I only one cup of cheddar so used a cup of velveeta on top. I was a bit leary about crumbling up the tator tots but we loved it this way. This was so creamy and good. Will be making again."
"Pure comfort food....YUM!! My husband and I didn't think it was bland at all with using the amount of seasonings shown in the recipe. I didn't think I would like it with the tators mixed in and not on top of the casserole but loved it! Thanks for sharing a keeper. It will be made often!"
"at first I wasn't sure what to think of this, as I see the recipe says to break the tater tots in half and mix in ground beef, I have always seen the tots on top (picture looks like that) but this had them mixed in. MY FAMILY LOVED IT!!! It is the easiest to make and was consumed in one night. If anything I would add maybe something to spice it up a bit as my one son said it was a tad bland, any suggestions? Loved it and Saving it for next time ...thanks for the recipe"
"I love this recipe too! I found it on the Duggar Family's favorite recipes, and it's a great way to use up ingredients you have around the house without feeling like you're eating the bare bones in the pantry. YUMMY! Thank you for posting this!"
"YUMMY! This was awesome! I put the little frenches fried onions on top also, and it was great!"
"My husband and I really like this. We have fixed it without cutting the tatertots in half, and it worked fine, if you want to skip a step. I also made it when I was short on cheese, and it still tasted great, although everything tastes better with cheese. "
"Great recipe!! Comfort food at it's finest. I loved having the tatortots mixed in, but I put some on top also. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!"
