Microwave Tater-Tot Casserole

Rated as 4.58 out of 5 Stars

"Tater-tot casserole in ten minutes! Great for those of us who need dinner in a pinch. And whose children dislike balanced meals! Use any flavor of condensed soup you have on hand, as long as it is cream of something."

  1. Pour the potato rounds into a 9x13 inch glass baking dish. Heat in the microwave for about 2 minutes to thaw. The potato rounds should be cold, but not frozen.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the cream of chicken soup, Cheddar cheese, and sour cream. Stir in the green beans and ham. Stir this mixture into the potato rounds until evenly blended.
  3. Return to the microwave, and cook on high power for 5 minutes, or until heated all of the way through. If you have a high powered microwave, you may want to check on your casserole every two minutes or so. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.

This recipe is definately cheesy! I nuked it in a round dish as mentioned by the author, it helped a bit, but there were still cool pockets. The tater tots started to break down when stirring ...

So far so good, but I began trying to fit a 9 x 13 in a microwave that doesn't suit it. Thanks.

I added 2 lb. beef instead of the ham. Also sprinkled cheddar cheese on the top as it was baking. Super easy! Will be making it again
