Tater Tot Hotdish
Do you love casserole recipes? I know I do. This was so easy to put together and it was very good too!!! You put the ground beef in raw and it cooks in the dish in the oven. It’s a one dish meal! This was the first time I have done that with ground beef. Usually I cook it first. I was never comfortable putting raw ground beef in but my fellow blogger friend posted this recipe and said it was delicious so I thought I would give it a try. I’m glad that I did and the ground beef was completely cooked. Her blog is http://www.meladycooks.com.
Spray a large lasagna type pan with cooking spray.
Crumble ground beef evenly onto the bottom.
Sprinkle chopped onion over the top of the ground beef.
If you have a picky eater that doesn’t like onion,
just don’t put it on a small section.
You can mark that spot by placing the tater tots differently
or just stick a wooden toothpick upright in that section.
Spread the vegetables on top of the hamburger mixture.
In a small bowl mix the soups together.
Spread the soup mixture over the vegetables.
Place the tater tots on top in one layer.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 80-90
minutes or until tater tots are a dark brown.
Place into serving bowls and serve.
