"I got this recipe from a casserole cookbook. The original recipe does not call for onions, but I find that the onions are a great addition. I usually add the onions to the ground beef and cook both together in the same skillet."

"Surprisingly delicious! I wasn't too sure what to expect from this simple recipe but the result was tasty, filling, yummy! I added a teaspoon of garlic salt to the meat, 2 stalks of chopped celery to the chopped onion (which I sauteed in olive oil) and I added a few spoonfuls of milk to the soup. I baked the whole shibang in my 9X9 square Pyrex baking dish and it came out perfect!. We'll definately make this again."
"This was great! My entire family loved it. I doubled everything and one of the cans of soup I used was cream of celery (the other cream of chicken.) If you're going to double it use a 9x13" pan."
"This was tasty and very easy to prepare. I added a package of frozen mixed vegetables, 1/2 cup milk, and used a medium onion, chopped, (instead of 1/2 C) to the ingredients listed. Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing."
"This was okay, a little bland. I think I would add more spices next time. I've had much better recipes before. Will keep looking. Thanks for sharing."
"very good!! cheap, easy to make and very tasty! I made a few minor adjustments..used cream of chicken instead of celery, also added sm amount of chili powder to the beef while i was browning it..we like things spicy and i ended up layer the tots..put a layer down, then the meat, then a top layer of tots..turned out great!! sent some of it with my sister as she went back to college"
"This was amazing! I added a little garlic powder and had to let it sit in the fridge overnight. My husband and two kids ate it up though! I will be making this again."
"So good, we love this dish. If I have it, I add twice as much soup and cheese so that the leftovers aren't dried out and I also add some frozen veggies to get the whole meal in one pan."
"I've made this many many times and usually make some sort of alteration based on what I have. Tonight, I made it with cheddar cheese soup - it's delicious! A wonderful meal for a cold day!"
"This was a very good, quick meal. I layered cheese under tater tots and it worked great! Thanks for a keeper..."
"I grew up with this too. I use 1 pkg. onion soup mix instead of the fresh onion and do not put cheese on it either. Always a favorite."
"I have been making this for years but I use cream of mushroom. Add a dollop of sour cream with a side of grean beans."
"Delicious and easy! My family loved this! I didn't have the cream of celery soup so I used broccoli cheese soup and it tasted great! Thanks for posting!!"
"I have a recipe very similar to this one, but mine calls for the cheddar cheese soup in stead of the shredded cheddar. If you wanted more spice you can use the nacho cheese soup as well. My kids love it!! :)"
"GREAT recipe! We are a family of 8, so I tripled the recipe - and we had no leftovers! :) Love the simplicity of it, perfect combination of basic ingredients to make something yummy that all 8 of us enjoyed. Thank you for the recipe!"
"This was both tasty and easy. I was only able to eat a bit cause I watch carbs, but everyone else loved it, even the picky kids. I added two stalks diced celery and diced carrots with the onion and just cooked it all with the ground beef. Didn't measure the cheese. I just covered the tots. Will make this again for sure since it went over so well. Thanks for sharing."
"Very yummy and filling! I added 1/2 cup frozen peas before tossing it in the oven and some salt/pepper to taste. Super quick dinner!"
"My grandma and father made this every now and then when I was a child. I love it! We tend to do some variations sometimes too so I thought I would share... sometimes we add 1 cup of roasted chopped green chili, or use cream of broccoli or mushroom instead of celery,(my dad and brother love it with mushroom!), or add 1 cup sauteed mushrooms and onions... ect."
"We made this last night for supper and we loved it. Its great for a quick, simple meal to prepare and it is ingredients that I always have on hand. I did add a can of drained green beans to make it a "one dish meal" , but otherwise followed the recipe. Thank you so much for this great recipe."
"I make something similar, with tomato soup and frozen green beans. It has always been comfort food for me."
