I have to admit, the name of this recipe intrigued me. It looked simple and included ingredients I had on hand so I decided to give it a shot last night.
1 lb. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp. mince garlic
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 can corn, drained
Small brick of Velveeta, cut into cubes
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown beef and onion together then drain. (The original recipe doesn’t call for minced garlic but I added it and was glad I did.) Mix cream of mushroom with the ground beef. Spread beef mixture in bottom of a casserole dish. Layer corn, Velveeta, and tater tots. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes to an hour, until tater tots are golden brown.
This made my house smell amazing while it was cooking. It tasted great too. It was what I imagine a casserole would taste like if Hunters Dish and Tater Tot Casserole had a baby. If you’re looking for an easy recipe to throw together on a cold night, add this to your collection.
