I was excited to try this recipe, but was sadly disappointed. I never buy tater tots, so I was unaware of how greasy they were. I used 93% lean ground beef and did not have to drain any grease from it. The tater tots left my casserole swimming in grease. Needless to say it was quite disgusting.

This recipe is deliciious. I followed the recipe but used the healthy condensed mushroom soup since there is no healthy celery soup. It was ready in about 30 minutes. We cleaned our plates.

This is a go-to staple in our house. I don't use the salt and pepper because I always season ground beef with pepper and garlic powder. I put in 1 cup onion and about 4 stalks of celery to get more veggies in. We use cream of mushroom soup since there isn't organic cream of celery and it still tastes great!

This was not the greatest casserole I have ever made. It was not nearly as good as I thought it would be. If I ever make this again (and I don't think I will), I will cook the meat before I put it in the pan and I will saute it with some garlic or other seasonings. It took forever to cook and the meat cooked up as one huge slab. This made it hard to cut. Not a lot of flavor either. I guess I just didn't like it.

I grew up eating tater tot casserole and I still love it! I have substituted cubed chicken for the ground beef. Gives it a totally different taste but still good!

This was easy and good for a weeknight supper. I'm thinking next time I might try some of the other suggestions to change it up a bit. It got a "3" from my husband and son.
