1 (16-oz.) package frozen tater tots
1 lb lean ground beef, (I use 88% lean)
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
1 tsp garlic powder
1 (10.75-oz.) can cream of mushroom soup
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 c. (8-oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
1 (15-oz.) can kernel corn, drained
1 (15-oz.) can green beans, drained
1 tsp kosher salt
How to make Tater Tot Casserole
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F. Using cooking spray, lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and set it aside.
Step 2: Add the ground beef to a warm 10-inch large skillet along with the onion, garlic powder, and salt. Cook over medium-high heat until the beef is cooked through, breaking the meat as it cooks using a spatula.
Step 3: Once the ground beef is cooked, add the mushroom soup, green beans, corn, and half cup cheese in the skillet. Stir well.
Step 4: Into the prepared baking dish, spread the bee mixture, then arrange the tater tots in a single layer on top. Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese.
Step 5: Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes or until the tater tots are hot and golden brown.
To ensure the tater tots stay nice and crispy in the oven, keep them in the freezer until right before adding them to the casserole.
Greasing the casserole lightly using a non-stick cooking spray makes the serving of the hamburger casserole easier.
For the best experience, serve this casserole right away.
Store any leftovers in the fridge and consume within 5 days.
