Here is an easy comfort food dinner recipe for everyone’s favorite tater tot casserole! It’s only a few ingredients and perfect for families! Love casseroles, you’ll LOVE this then! What is the one recipe you remember the most from school nights as kid? Was it not the most comforting meal ever? Have you noticed that you’ve forgotten about that dish since you’ve become a parent?
But this week I am ‘righting the wrong’ and serving up my childhood favorite casserole– and it’s so simple! Growing up, my parents always worked a lot. So we didn’t have fancy meals or dishes that were hard to pronounce. My mom always relied on recipes that were easy enough for her to cook every night (whoa, mom) and easy on the budget to feed us all, well.
1 pound ground beef
1 1-pound package tater tots
2 10-ounce cans condensed cream of mushroom soup (or 3 cans if you want it extra creamy)
1 or 2 14-ounce cans vegetables (whole-kernel corn, green beans, etc.)
Onion and garlic powder (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
While the oven is preheating, brown the ground beef (seasoning to taste as you cook) and drain off the grease.
Spread the beef in the bottom of a 2- to 2½-quart baking dish.
Drain the liquid off the vegetables and spread them over the meat.
Using a rubber spatula, spread the cans of soup over the top of the vegetables and meat. Use the soup as is, straight from the can. Do not mix it with anything.
Arrange a layer of tater tots over the top of that.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 50 minutes
