Excellent, the whole family loved it. Definitely make this again.
I thought for sure the tater tots would be soggy, but after reading all the good reviews, I decided to try the recipe. Baking them for 10 minutes obviously helped them from getting mushy.....this is a great casserole and I will make it again!!!
in place of fresh tomato in his comforting dish, will use diced canned tomato, since a family member does not like fresh tomatoes.
My boyfriend's kids devour this! No one can turn down tator tots. :)
I typically half this recipe with absolutely no problems. Cream of whatever soups will keep for a week or so in the fridge if they are tightly sealed, so it's easy to just use 1/2 the can. If I need to thin it out, a little beef broth helps. I do saute some fresh garlic (and might try fresh onions thanks to a suggestion in the comments!) with the lean ground beef. I also drain off all the grease from the meat. While I've never made it without it, I don't think the tomato is truly essential.
Great easy and kid-friendly meal!
Nice alternative to a traditional beef casserole. I also used fresh onions in the dish instead of the fried onions and just used to the dried to top it off. I used cream of celery reduced fat and 93 % fat reduced beef.
