Tater Tot Casserole

What you will need:
2-2 1/2 pounds of ground beef
1 whole vadalia onion chopped
1 Family Size Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 cups of grated cheddar cheese
Large bag of frozen tater tots
First I browned the ground beef with the onion and simmered until onion was transparent. Then I added the can of Cream of Mushroom soup. You spread this in a 13 x 9 inch pan and then you will need a helper.
My helper today is Meadow.
Meadow ~ is placing each tator tot in its place.
It takes a lot of tator tots to cover this baby!! Meadow is smiling, she's almost done!!
Then you cover the tator tots with cheese. This is really fun!

Meadow spread the cheese out evenly. Notice that nails on the left hand and pink ones on the right. Perfect for every six year old...

Then mommy puts it in the over to bake at 350 for 45 minutes, until tator tots are golden brown, cheese it melted and beef mixture is bubbly.
Smile, it smells sooo good!

Spoon it into dishes and....
Confession....this was our first time making this dish and Meadow informed after a few bites that she really didn't like it! Sigh...oh well it was fun while it lasted and the other girls loved it! :)

Yum yum! I have to chuckle cause people used to give me a hard time about making the tator tots look so orderly. Glad to see that you do that also! HA! Thanks for stopping bless me girl. I begin my morning with a sweet smile. Have a great day.

This looks great! (Even if Meadow says otherwise.) What I really like is it looks great for having the kids dig in and help. I think I'll/we'll be giving this a try.

I love the photos. I may have to try this. Or better yet, have my kids make this.
