Moms BEST EVER Tatertot Hotdish
- 2 lb
- ground beef
- seasoning salt
- 1 pkg
- frozen mixed veggies (usually about 1 lbs.)
- 2 can(s)
- cream of chicken or mushroom soup
- small splash of milk (optional)
- american cheese
- 1 1/4 pkg
- frozen tater tots
** Once browned (or not) place in bottom of 9x13 pan and spread out.
**My trick is to put small dollops all over surface and then spread those out slowly so you don't end up just "mixing" the soup and veggies together. This dish is all about the layers!
** I would NOT recommend substituting American with Cheddar - it gets pretty greasy. Do not substitute sliced with shredded as it does not melt evenly (and its a terrible base for the tots) TRUST ME :)
**Raw beef- 1 hour and check
**Browned beef - 45 minutes and check
You want to see the tots golden brown and the cheese bubbling.
**You really do not need much of a side with this... There are so many veggies in it. If anything maybe a salad. That' about it.
