Yummy Tater-Topped Casserole

I often make this all-in-one dish ahead of time and reheat it for reunions and potlucks. No additional salt is needed...there's just enough in the soups. --Rosa Dietzier, Santa Rosa, California

    I made this just as recipe states. Yummy! However I used the whole bag of tater tots which is 32 oz. It covers the top perfectly.

    A regular in our household!! Family doesn't care for mixed veggies, so I use only corn, but still DELICIOUS! Great re-heated and easy to make!

    This recipe was so easy to make. My Husband said I could make it again. Next time I would add a few more spices to the hamburger, because it was a bit bland. Otherwise it was very good. It also freezes well.

    Made this with 1 lb of ground chuck. Was plenty of meat. Seasoned the chuck with a little salt & pepper. Was excellent! Would definitely make again.

    The french-fried onions make this a really tasty recipe. I used Golden Mushroom Soup because my husband and I are lactose intolerant (and I skipped the butter and used water instead of milk) and it turned out great.

    I added half a package of onion soup mix and a lot of pepper to the meat and used green beans.
