This is the ultimate comfort food, makes you feel like you are sitting right at your mother's table. I thought everyone knew about this dish, but after talking to some people last week about what was on their families menus I found out that only one of them had even heard of it. We even had it on our school lunch menus so maybe it is a regional dish.
Tator Tot Hotdish
2 lb. hamburger
1 onion chopped
2 cans French Cut green beans
(Yes, it needs to be French Cut green beans because that is how it has always been made and to use anything else would just be wrong.)
2 cans Cream of Mushroom soup
1/2 soup can of milk
Brown the hamburger and the onions. Add the green beans, soup, and milk and give it a good stir to mix it all together. Put in greased 9X13 pan.
Line the tator tots on the entire top of the dish. Yes, they need to be lined up in neat rows, not dumped on the top, because again, that would just be wrong. Bake at 350 degree for a 1 hour.
