Tater Tot Hotdish

Recipe by Buffington
READY IN: 1hr 10mins
YIELD: 4-6


  • 1
    (1 lb) package tater tots (you probably won't use the whole package, but this is usually the smallest size I can find)
  • 2
    (10 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup (or 3 cans if you want it extra creamy)
  • 1
    (14 ounce) can vegetables (or 2 cans, whatever kind you like, I like sweet corn, my mom uses green beans)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • While the oven is preheating, brown the ground beef (seasoning to taste as you cook) and drain off the grease.
  • Spread the beef in the bottom of a 2 to 2 1/2 quart baking dish.
  • Drain the liquid off the vegetables and spread them over the meat.
  • Using a rubber spatula, spread the cans of soup over the top of the vegetables and meat. Use the soup as is, straight from the can. Do NOT mix it with anything.
  • Arrange a layer of tater tots over the top of that.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
  • Top with your favorite variety of shredded cheese as you serve.
