Full Answer

Brown 1 pound of ground beef and a chopped onion in a skillet over medium heat. Drain the fat and add a can of cream of mushroom soup, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and 1 tablespoon of ketchup to the browned meat. Stir to combine, and transfer the mixture to a baking dish. Top it with 3 cups of tater tots and bake it in a 350 F oven for 30 minutes or until the tater tots are golden brown.

Substitute a can of cream of celery soup for the cream of mushroom soup, if desired.

There are several variations for this recipe. Some recipes call for adding 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese onto the meat mixture in the baking dish before adding the tater tots. Other recipes double the amount of meat and use a can of cheese soup in addition to the cream of mushroom soup. Adding 1 cup of mixed vegetables or green beans to the recipe is also a common variation.
