Beef and Tator Bake

This is better than your average Tator Tot Casserole. I just found this recipe last week and Jon and I loved it the first time I made it. Hope you enjoy it too!

4 cups frozen tator tots
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
1 can condensed cream of broccoli soup
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 can (2.8 oz.) french fried onions, divided
1 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, divided
1/3 cup milk
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. pepper

  • Place tater tots in an ungreased 13 x 9 in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the broccoli, soup, tomato, 3/4 cup french fried onions, 1/2 cup cheese, milk, garlic powder, and pepper; heat through. Pour over tator tots.
  • Cover and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining onions and cheese. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

12 servings

Hope you enjoy this. I would love to hear if you tried it and how you liked it.
