  • think about using frozen hash browns instead of tots. don't see why it would be much different. i'll give it a try.

  • This recipe could be made in the microwave - would anyone have the bake time if made in the microwave?

  • I add drained green beans. I also layer the tater tots on top. For a little extra topping: Crush one cup regular potato chips mix with a little margarine. Then sprinkle it on the casserole.

  • I think this sounds way better than hamburger helper! I would definitely cook the tators first and not mix in with the soup. Just add cheese on top and they will be crunchy. Good one!

  • I loved this recipe, I do believe it would be
    better if the tots were more crunchy.
    But we loved it, I thought of it as a
    better version of hamburger helper....

  • I made this for my family and if anyone has kids like mine you fight them to eat their veggies. I was tring to include veggies in this meal to sneak a few past the kidos and green Beans works great mix it in with soup. Even my kids ate their veggies!!!

  • I like to bake the tator tots in the oven while preparing the rest of the dish, then I don't need to bake the dish - I mix some of the tots in the dish and the rest I put on top , and it is ready to serve in 1/2 the time. It also makes all of the tots extra crispy.

  • You don't cook the tator tots. Just add them into the mixture and it will cook in the oven.

  • So I take it you cook the tator tots first...and if so, should I bake them till they are crunchy???

  • I made this for my family. My kids loved it, and my husband went back for thirds. Note: DO NOT drain, the cheese and tator tots will soak uo the liquid when stirred in.

  • Absolutely loved this recipe. My husband couldn't say enough about it either. We highly recommend it. If you don't have a large family, I would cut the recipe in half.

  • We do something similar. We use milk and not water for a richer flavor.I also layer the hamb., tots, soup, cheese

  • I make a version of this. Mix 1 egg with 1 pd hamburger meat flatten out in a glass casserole pan, bake at 350 for 20/30 min until almost done. Spread 2 cans cream of mushroom soup on hamburger, layer tator tots on top in single layer, sprinkle with cheese, bake until cheese is golden brown & tator tots are heated thru. (Can add canned mushrooms or other veggies on top of soup.)

  • I'm assuming you drain the hamburger before adding other, right? Mix the soup & water then pour into hamburger/onion and then pour into casserole dish? Sounds good, I'll give it a shot. Pastafiend
