I always like to read reviews on a recipe before making it and I'm glad I did in this case because it has made this simple dish, taste phenomenal. Firstly, I cannot believe someone tried to make this without cooking the meat first--I was under the impression that was Cooking 101 common sense. Secondly I substituted Cream of Chicken for the Celery, I also added half of a chopped onion and garlic powder in lieu of garlic. After cooking the ground beef and onion, I mixed it with both of the soup mixtures and 1 cup of 2% milk. I then layered mild cheddar cheese on top of that and then on the very top I put the frozen tater tots. There is no need to thaw them. I baked it at 375 for 60 minutes. The tater tots were nice and crispy with cheese oozing around them--and it was absolutely delicious. I am making it tonight, for the second time in two weeks. I will definitely make it again---and again.


I made this with a few changes. I didn't add the milk, I used one can of cream of chkn, and one can of cream of mushroom. I layered the ground beef on the bottom, then the soup mixture, then I added a mixture of frozen vegetables (thawed), followed by about 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, and finally, the tator tots on top. Baked for close to an hour. It's one of our favorites.


I will never make this recipe again without browning the hamburger first!! I baked this for almost 2 1/2 hours and the hamburger was still NOT done! Tasted Great, but not willing to wait 2 1/2 hrs to eat it!
