This is a favorite of everyone in my family: Tater Tot Casserole. You can find all sorts of variations on the recipe on the Internet, and most of them ask you to put the tater tots (it can be off-brand ones) on the bottom, as the first layer.
My daughter and I, however, have decided it's prettier with the tots on top, so I've settled on making it that way; after all, presentation is everything! I first got this recipe from my ex-daughter-in-law's Aunt Dar.
TATER TOT CASSEROLE
2 pounds hamburger
1/2 cup onion
Mix together and cook till hamburger is nicely browned. Drain.
3 cans cream of mushroom soup mixed with
1 can condensed milk
Spread the browned burger in the bottom of a 9X13 pan. Pour soup-milk mix evenly over it.
Here's where I make an addition, hoping to add a little something healthy to a high-fat, high-carb meal. I heat up 2 cups of mixed vegetables and spread them over the soup mix. This was not originally part of the recipe.
Now place tater tots on top. Bake for 40 minutes at 350, remove, sprinkle as much cheese as you like on top, and bake another 15 minutes.
It's equally tasty with the tots on the bottom, so feel free to make it that way if you like.
Kids love this, but so do any adults to whom I've served it.
