Edith Bruck, Houston, sends a similar recipe, and adds a few more directions. She writes, “This recipe is delicious and doesn’t take much time to prepare. Just add salad and bread. You do not have to season. I sometimes sprinkle grated cheese over the top the last 15 minutes, but it’s not necessary. The meat with the soup makes its own gravy.”
1 pound ground beef or chuck, sirloin, etc.
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1⁄2 to 1 package frozen tater tots
Heat oven to 350°F.
In 9-by-5-inch or 9-by-6-inch dish, flatten ground beef on bottom. Spread soup over meat. Pack tater tots on top in a mound. Bake for 45 minutes, or until cooked through.
