Oh come on now !!! A "Cowboy Casserole" was something prepared out on the range by a cook with a Chuckwagon. Of all the ingredients shown, probably the only one carried in the Chuckwagon would be black pepper. OK.....I know, I am being a picky, picky man !!!

What size casserole dish? It looks like and 8x10 just by counting the tater tots. Just a quick question also, are the recipes ever made from the recipe that appears before they are released? I hope my question make sense.

I made this but add a 1/2 cup of water and a package of onion soup after the extra fat was drained from the meat mixed, green beans and the cream of mushroom soup and reduced fat cheese.. It was very tasty.

Do you just make up recipe names? This is and always has been just "Tator Tot Casserole"!

This is a great recipe, I have used Hash Browns that was all I could find, mixed the cheese throughout with cream of celery soup, meat and broccoli /cauliflower carrot veg on bottom but use crushed cornflakes mixed with melted butter and dash of salt /pepper on top ..yummmm!!

Loved it. Easy to make. I browned my ground chuck, drained, then mixed with onions and a few cloves of fresh, minced garlic sauteed in olive oil (instead of garlic powder). I also added a mixture of frozen peas and carrots instead of just peas. Use "extra crispy" tater tots and top with sharp chedder. Good eats!

I think that I am going to get my son to try this one but we may use a few different things because of some of the things I can't eat
