1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 can (10-3/4 oz.) condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup milk
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 lb. (1/2 of 32-oz. pkg.) frozen Tater Tots
Preheat oven to 350, if eating tonight. Brown the ground beef and saute onion together. When meat is browned, drain grease and add frozen veggies, soup and milk. Mix well. Spray nonstick spray into a 9×13 pan. Pour soup mixture into bottom of pan. Top with potatoes. If eating this meal tonight, then continue reading, but if prepping for a freezer meal then go below to where the freezer instructions continue.
Bake for 40 minutes and top with cheese last few minutes of baking. Baking time may vary slightly… make sure the potatoes are pretty much golden brown before topping with cheese. Cheese only needs a couple minutes to melt. Soup/veggie mixture should be HOT!
For freezing make meal cover casserole with aluminum foil. Include a small baggie of cheese with each meal for topping the casserole at the end of baking.
Thaw the meal in the fridge overnight and then bake at 350 covered for the first 40 minutes. Top with cheese and bake another 10 minutes UNCOVERED.
