Tater Tot Casserole

After all my gourmet Hello Fresh meals lately, I almost feel guilty posting this casserole.  It is one of those blasts from the past.  Sort of like comfort food, but one kids will all eat,  Tonight I just was craving it for some reason...cold rainy weather perhaps?  So here it is if you have never tried it.  It is an old classic from the 70s.

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom or celery soup, undiluted
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen Tater Tots
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • I also add in some fresh chopped mushrooms if I have some that need to be used up
  • Brown ground beef, onion, celery and mushrooms until meat is no longer pink.  Drain off any fat.
  •  Spray a 11x 8 baking dish.  Dump all the meat mixture into the dish and spread out evenly.  Spoon the cream of mushroom soup (undiluted) on top.  Sprinkle with the cheese.  Arrange tater tops on top.
  • Bake at 400 for 25 minutes
  • Note:  some cooks like to put the tater tots on top of the soup and the cheese on top of the tater tots.
