I tried everything that this recipe called for,except I put a little twist in this dish...with a little help from my boyfriend who happens to have at least four years restaurant exp.I used one teaspoon of onion powder,a teaspoon of garlic powder,one package of Lipton onion soup mix,and of course can't forget one twelve ounce bottle of chili sauce,and two tablespoons of Worchestersire sauce.I combined all of these ingredients into the ground beef after browning the meat,then I layered it on the bottom of the casserole dish.Then I added all the mixed veggies,layered with shredded chedder cheese,then two cans of cream of celery soup and then I topped it all off with one bag of tator tots.I cooked this dish at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.


This is an okay basic recipe, but I browned the ground beef first, then mixed in 1/2 envelope of Lipton Onion Soup Mix and 2 medium cloves of minced garlic (I am a garlic lover). I put the beef mixture in the bottom of the dish, then layered canned French cut green beans and canned corn (both drained thoroughly). I can't stand cream of chicken soup, so I mixed a can of cream of mushroom with a can of cheddar cheese soup and poured half the mixture over the meat and veggies. Then I added the tater tots on top and spread the remaining soup mixture over that and baked. Husband loved it!


Good basic recipe that was different than my regular version of tater tot casserole. There was no way you could convince to to layer the uncooked beef in my casserole dish so I browned it first with onions and minced garlic. I used a pkg of mixed veggies that included carrots, corn and grn bean, followed by a layer of sharp cheddar cheese. I needed a little milk to make the cream of chix soup to work a little better but I poured about 1/3 of my "soup mix" over the hamburger, then layered the tater tots, and then the remaining soup mix over all. I baked 1/2 time covered and then another 35-40 minuted uncovered and it turned out really well. When your tired of your tater tot recipe - try this one. Its not drastically different but its still a filling and tasty homecooked meal! Thanks!
