Comfort Food Part Deux

Last week when I posted my recipe for fried chicken and linked it to FringeGirl's blog carnival on Comfort Food over at the domestic fringe my brother left me a comment saying that I should post my mom's recipe for Tater Tot Casserole, so this is for you Jared, and I hope the rest of you all like it too.

Here's what you'll need:
1lb ground beef
1 can green beans, drained
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cups milk (approx, I usually just use a soup can full of milk)
1 bag tater tots
salt, pepper, seasoning salt and minced onion
grated cheese

Brown ground beef, drain fat and line the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan, sprinkle with salt, pepper, seasoning salt and minced onion.

 Drain can of green beans, put on top of ground beef.
 Whisk together soups and milk and pour over ground beef, green bean mixture.
 Layer tater tops on top of ground beef, green bean, soup mixture.
 Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.  Remove from oven sprinkle with grated cheese, return to oven just until cheese is melted.  Serve and eat.

As you can see someone was hungry and couldn't wait for me to get a picture before diving in!

This is also a meal that could be made up and frozen to be enjoyed at a later date, you could probably split it and freeze it in two 9 x 9 pans or freeze one and have one for supper.  If you are going to do that I would probably use 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef and wait until cooking to add the grated cheese, but everything else should be good to go.

Okay its your turn now, head on over to the domestic fringe and see what comforts are cookin' this week.

Ta ta for now.
