After reading the reviews, I used this recipe as a jumping off point and made the following changes: Used 2lbs of ground sirloin, 1 can cream of mushroom, 1 can cheddar cheese soup, a full bag of tater tots, and a can of french style green beans. I browned the beef with the onion and a teaspoon of minced garlic, and 1 tablespoon greek seasoning. I then mixed the soups and 1 cup of milk into the meat after it was browned and drained. I layered the greenbeans on the bottom of a 9X13 casserole dish, spooned the meat mixture over it, then sprinkled 2 cups of shredded cheddar over that, then topped with the tots, which I patted down into the cheese. sprinkled the whole thing with some fresh ground pepper, and baked at 350 for 40 minutes. For those other reviewers who complained about blandness, well I think it's common sense to season your meat while cooking, and hey, be adventurous and use this recipe as a starting point, tweak it with different soups, cheeses, spices...My family and I really enjoyed this dish, and while I did make changes, I think this recipe deserves 5 stars for a great basic recipe, and inspiration. I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow, I am betting that like most casseroles like this, it'll taste even better tomorrow! :)

This is one of my family's favorite recipes. I do layer it a bit different, as we like the potaotes crispy. I pour the soup mixture over the ground beef, then add half the cheese, top with the potatoes, then sprinkle with a bit more cheeese, resulting in a crispier topping. Good comfort food.

This recipe is pretty good, I've made it 2 times. I recommend mixing the soup and milk into the meat and leaving the cheese and tater tots on top. I also used a whole bag of tater tots. The tots came out nice and crunchy which is what i wanted.
