    This is a recipe that would go over well if feeding young kids (husband included). I followed the recipe to a T (and using top shelf ingredients). It "filled the hole" but wouldn't make again. I personally found it to be bland. Did have leftovers because we don't have kids in the house. Husband ate leftovers the next day for lunch. He said it tasted a little better the next day.

    Awesome! Made this recipe per the directions and I felt that nothing needed to be changed great at lunch leftovers too

    Outstanding!! Quick dish everyone loved! Will have this again very soon! Didn't modify from the directions. No wait?! I added the specified amount of cheese in the dish and added sprinkled more on top

    Dish tasted OK but feel like it should be served over toast similar to a sausage gravy my mom used to make for breakfast.

    i used ground pork instead of beef..i would also like to try chicken as well. it was easy to put together and I had everything already in the kitchen so no shopping for extra spices, I like recipes like that

    Two changes I had to make due to what I had on hand and for my wife. I used cream of celery instead of mushroom because my wife REALLY dislikes mushrooms even though my two sons and I relish mushrooms. I also did not have tater totes but used frozen french fries. This recipe was complete demolished by us! This will be placed in my cookbook favorites in the kitchen. I wonder how it would be with sausage thrown in?

    My husband really liked it-he said it reminded him of shepherd's pie but with tater tots. I thought it was simple and good. I am a tomato fanatic and put a little salsa on top of mine and I liked it better. My 14 yr. old daughter didn't care for it, and she's the reason I tried it (she likes cheesy tater tots)!

    it turned out great. Nostalgic dish for my husband. It was easy to make. But instead of cream of mushroom I used cream of chicken just because that's all I had on hand.
