  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Cook and stir ground beef, onion, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in a skillet over medium heat until beef is browned and crumbly, 7 to 10 minutes. Spread beef into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  3. Stir cream of mushroom soup, potato nuggets, and Cheddar cheese together in a large bowl until potato nuggets are evenly coated in soup and cheese. Spread potato nugget mixture over beef mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until browned, about 45 minutes. Sprinkle paprika and parsley flakes over the top.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Use 32 oz of tots! Delicious guilty pleasure food. Probably not for those on a diet, and definitely tempting enough to go for seconds and thirds. Four stars was due to the recipe asking for on...
