Just Be Happy

Friday, January 9, 2009

Yesterday I was so caught up on my crafts that the day went by and I almost didn't even notice it... when I looked at the clock on the wall, I realized it was getting close to the time my husband gets home from work and everything was a mess!

I had to do something quickly, but I still was so entertained by the crochet rug that I'm working on that I didn't feel like cooking, so I made one of those dishes that I cook when I don't feel like cooking, but still like eating it. Does that make any sense?

Tater tot casserole:


- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 can cream of mushrooms
- 1 1/2 cups (or 1 can) mixed vegetables
- 1 cup cheese (cheddar or mozzarella)
- tater tots

Brown the meat, seasoning it with your favorite spices. Discard the fat. In a 9"x 9" pan, put the meat in the bottom, than add the cream of mushroom soup on top, add a layer of cheese, then a layer of vegetables and finally a layer of tater tots. Bake it for 30 minutes (350F).


  1. Thanks so much for the recipe. Yummy! Now that's a great winter dinner!! Thanks for sharing your secret! :)
    PS hope your hubby doesn't read this :)

  2. This looks like a really easy, tasty recipe. The pictures make it look even better. :-) I better see what I can pull out from the freezer. I'm down to that now...

  3. Haven't visited much lately, in the middle of a move and everything is currently a little topsy-turvy! Be in touch as soon as I can about the hat! May be a few more days before I can sit & breath in.

  4. I made your casserole tonight and it was delicious. Details on my other blog: http://elviajedevida.blogspot.com/2009/01/tater-tot-casserole.html
