I love tater tot casserole this recipe is much the same as mine but I don't add ketchup. I also add a drained can of corn and a drained can of green beans for extra nutrition and a 1/2 cup of milk mixed in to loosen it up and stretch the soup. MMMM MMMM Good! Read More

This recipe is good if you're looking for something quick and very easy. It probably doesn't need all the onion but it does have good flavor. I think next time I'd coat the entire top with tator tots...it kind of helps even out the mushiness. I'll probably make it again if I get in a crunch for time and ingredients. Read More

My wife whipped up a batch of this stuff on a busy weeknight and after a few bites we both agreed that this is a little casserole that fires on all cylinders. Maybe it's the charming simplicity of the preparation or the childhood memories brought up by the tater-tots but we found this concoction to be surprisingly scrumptious; it's got plenty of flavor and a nice variation in textures. I suppose it should be noted that we used ground turkey breast instead of ground beef and Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. Read More

This is such a great dish! I did make a few changes and wouldn't change a thing: I didn't add any ketchup. I used 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup so it wouldn't be too dry I added a can of drained french style green beans sauteed mushrooms and then before putting on the tater tots I layered the top of the meat mixture with Velveeta slices and topped that with french fried onions and then put the tator tots on top. Yummy! Read More

This was great except I kind of changed a lot of stuff. I left out the worcestershire altogether and I only added ketchup at the end- for dipping. I also added a package of frozen chopped broccoli- so that we could get our vegetables in. It was good. The broccoli really lended itself to the dish. Read More

Always a staple in our house when I was growing up! The only thing I do differently is add cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom soup a small container of cream cheese and a small container of sour cream. I also bake the tots while the hamburger and onion are cooking because we like to have them a little crunchy which may help cut down on some of the mushiness that other reviewers are mentioning. Overall though great recipe! Thanks for sharing! Read More

I didn't use the ketchup but I found the Worchestshire sauce to be a delicious addition to this. It really added to the flavor. My entire family gobbled it up. We always have leftovers but not with this one. It was actually requested that I make a BIGGER pan of it next time. lol thank you!! Read More
