(this is not a picture of one I made... I am never neat enough or anywhere near Type A enough to line all the tater-tots up all pretty in rows... I just dump em on and let nature take it's course. It's pretty this way too... I guess. )
I like to take this to people to heat and serve whenever they may need a meal..
1/3 Celery (optional)
1 lb lean ground beef
Salt & pepper to taste (and any other spices you like)
1 can cream of celery, or cream of chicken soup (undiluted)
1 16oz. package frozen tater-tots
1 C. shredded Cheddar Cheese
Spoon into 12 x 9 baking dish
Top w/ frozen tater-tots.
Bake 375-400 degrees approx 40min till bubbly…
Remove from oven, top w/ cheese return to oven to melt. (about 5 min)
