Tater Tot Casserole and a Teaser

I am definitely not a red meat eater, so my husband enjoyed this one all by himself. This was a very easy recipe to make. I substituted extra lean ground beef, low fat cheese, and reduced fat cream of mushroom to make this meal a little healthier. You could also use tater tots from to avoid trans fats. My husband enjoyed this meal and will be having leftovers tomorrow night! Come visit my blog tomorrow to see what I enjoyed for dinner tonight. Teaser: It involves sweet potatoes and polenta!!

Tater Tot Casserole:

(from the Kraft Food and Family Magazine)
1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 can (10-3/4 oz.) condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup milk
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 lb. (1/2 of 32-oz. pkg.) frozen bite-size seasoned potato nuggets

HEAT oven to 375ºF. Brown meat with onions in large skillet, stirring occasionally; drain. Spoon into 8 inch pan.
MIX soup and milk; pour over meat mixture. Top with layers of vegetables, cheese and potatoes.
BAKE 45 min. or until potatoes are golden brown and casserole is heated through.

I do enjoy a tater tot from time to time! Soon, probably at the end of the month after payday, I do plan on making that pizza casserole. I cannot get it out of my mind!

You could totally veggie this recipe out! I'd leave out the meat and add more veggies. You could even use that fake meat stuff...but some how I think it would be better with more veggies.

Ha! Tater tots remind me of elementary school days - except your version looks much more appetizing!

I can't wait to see the sweet potato/polenta dish - I love teasers!

Oh this looks very good! I used to make one very similar to this and sometimes I would substitute lean ground turkey for the meat. Hmmm, I may have to make this again as I have not made it in a long time.
