"For such a simple recipe very good, lends itself to personal taste additions. Fresh corn-on-the-cob in season so I omitted the canned corn substituted fresh green beans. We prefer the tator medallion shape rather than tator tots followed a suggestion of another review and crisped the tators before putting in the casserole dish ( so glad I did). Added Worcestershire, garlic, sprinkled 1/2 packet of beef onion gravy packet plus about 1/3 cup of beef bone broth while browning meat. Very quick and tasty casserole."

"Family loved this. Doubled recipe. Sprinkled a little bit of steak spice on the beef for flavour and a tbsp of Worcestershire sauce and some garlic . Added frozen avocado instead of corn. Kept everything else the same. Family asking for it again this week."

"Very good dish..Next time, I will thaw the tater tots beforehand to cut the baking time down & use Cream of Onion soup for added flavor.."

"The whole family loved this. It was quick and easy to put together. I did double the recipe for 4 servings. I had to bake it a few minutes longer as we like our taters crispy but it came out great. Thanks for sharing!"

"I always double this & cook ground beef with onions & garlic... Sometimes peppers & mushrooms. I also use a can of condensed bean & bacon soup & a can of cream of mushroom soup. Also bake at 400 for about 30 minutes as we like the tots crispy!"

"I love this recipe I make it for pot lucks but this past week I made it for a cabin of 18 and I read all the bland comments and thought I can't take that. So I got creative I put garlic in it of course. Then fiesta corn more sweet corn, kidney beans, black beans yeah it's a lot of extras but it was probably a triple recipe and probably weighted 15 lbs lol I couldn't carry it. But it fed a lot of folks and even got a call after we got home did you have any extras, why yes I had also made my daughter a pan while she was home for the weekend and of course she didn't eat it lol SUPER SUCCESS!!!!!!"

"Good but definitely needed a bit of extra flavour. I added brown sauces and beef powder.

Also, I would let the tater tops thaw a little first as they weren't quite cooked when the casserole was ready!"
