Modern Tater Tot Casserole

I have kind of combined the old fashioned Green Bean Casserole (that all of us love for Thanksgiving) with the old fashioned Tater-Tot Casserole. Came out really amazing!


  • 1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 Pound Ground Chuck Hamburger
  • 2 Cups Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. Dried Onions
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 3 Cups Tater-Tots
  • 1 Can Green Beans
  • 1/2 Cup French Fried Onions


Brown Hamburger – drain. Add mushroom soup, salt, pepper, dried onions. In a 9×11 pan pour half the meat mixture and spread around. Place 1/2 can of green peppers on top of the meat mixture and spreads around evenly. Take one cup of cheese and spread on top of the beans. Make another layer of meat and beans. Top with tater-tots, then the remaining cheese. And finally top with the french fried onions.

Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serves 6. Prep time is 20 min plus cook time 45 min – 65 min total
