This recipe goes together quickly but bakes 50 minutes. This is my version of a Paula Deen post that she credits it to someone else (see end of post).
1 pound ground beef 1 10 ounce can cream of mushroom soup 1 10 ounce can of peas 1 32 ounce bag of tater tots 2 cups of cheddar cheese 1 white onion 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
Preheat your oven to 350° F.
Cook your ground beef in a large saucepan on medium heat for 6 minutes.
Add onion to beef. Cook for 6 more minutes or until the beef has browned and is cooked all the way through.
Drain beef/onion mixture in a colander..
Spread browned beef and onions in the bottom of a casserole dish (About 10” x 16”).
Pour liquid off peas and then spread them evenly on top of the beef.
In a separate bowl, stir together the cream of mushroom soup and garlic powder.
Pour soup mixture evenly on top of the peas and beef in your casserole dish. Sprinkle cheddar cheese across the top of the casserole so that it forms an even layer on top of your ingredients.
Add tater tots on top of the layer of cheese. Make sure you arrange them evenly, covering the entire casserole.
Place dish in the oven and bake for 50 minutes, or until the tater tots begin to turn golden brown.
