    Good. Made it with Italian sausage. Layered meat, onions, tots, cheese.

    I actually added more hamburger than it called for because I like it s little more meatier, 1 1/2 lbs. I followed the recipe the rest of the way and it turned out delicious, Definitely going to fix the recipe again.

    I mixed the cheese into the meat mixture instead of layering them but it still tasted wonderful! Thank you for this recipe! :)

    It lacked flavor, I would definitely modify it next time. Maybe add more ingredients

    This Tater Tot Casserole was a hit! I did however add more cheese towards the end of the baking time. This will definitely be on my list to make again!

    Taste ok. I followed the advice of others and cooked the crowns in oven first. Did a layer of meat, cheese, then crowns. Cooked it for ten mins then added next layer. Cooked it additional 10 minutes.

    Very easy, and pleasing. Very little prep work and no vegetable chopping. Next time I'd add some frozen veggies for a little color.

    Big hit with my family - husband had 3 helpings and even the picky 2 year old liked it! But be aware that you will probably want to make a few modifications. For example, a 9"x13" pan was way too big to line the bottom with tots. But my 8"x8" was perfect. (Just adjusted cook time to 30 min.) I also took other reviewers' suggestions and the baked tots before using in recipe and seasoned beef while cooking.

    This was awesome! I made the ground beef mixture in my instant pot then poured it into a casserole dish, topped it with the tater tots and cheese then broiled it for about 15 minutes.

    Good. I need to use a fatter meat next time. I also want to try crispy crowns instead of tater tots. I also had to make this with out vegetables (sad). But over all good recipe.

    good! maybe next time I'll bake the tots a bit first (what other reviewers said) so they are more like tots than mushy potatoes. Hubby mentioned seasoning the beef while browning it --- jury is still out on that decision though. (;-) )

    It was good. The 9×13 pan was a little large, however.

    Me and my husband enjoyed it. He loves tater tots and casseroles. Like many previous reviews I used 1 lb meat (we like grnd turkey) and two cans of creamed soup. I also added 1/2cup sour cream to the soup mix. This is great recipe to modify to your liking. I will add spinach or kale next time.

    Yummy. I did cauliflower tater tots instead. It was mushy but still really good. I did use angus 86/14 organic but added McCormack’s hamburger seasoning.

    Turned out good, my 4 year old loved it. Only thing I would change is to use 2 lbs instead of one.

    Changed the recipe by adding another 1/2 lb ground beef, 1/2 milk and 1 extra can of mushroom soup! Delicious!! my family loved it! Very moist and cheesey!
    my kids loved! It was quick and easy! my husband even thought it was great! So its a keeper

    It comes out better if you use the crowns instead of full size tots. Nice and crispy!
