Tater Tot Casserole

For dinner the other night, I made Tater Tot Casserole. I got the idea from a cookbook my friend's neighborhood put together, and it was a new idea for me, so I'll pass it along in case you haven't made it before. It's essentially Shepherd's Pie, only you use tater tots instead of mashed potatoes.
Tater Tot Casserole
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Cook a pound or so of ground beef in a skillet, you can add some chopped onions if your family likes that kind of thing (ours does). Drain the fat, then add a can of cream of mushroom soup and a little milk so loosen things up.

Pour the meat in an 8 x 8 baking dish (a little Pam on the dish is a good idea), then add a layer of vegetables (corn, green beans, mixed veggies, whatever).

Sprinkle a generous layer of shredded cheese on top of the veggies (a good cupful). Then layer your tater tots on top of the cheese.

Bake in the oven for at last a half hour, or until the cheese has melted and the tater tots are hot.
