Total Timeunder 1 hour
- 8 Jumbo (3 1/2-inch) foil baking cup (remove paper separators)
- 1 pound Lean ground beef
- 1 Medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
- 1 tablespoon Ketchup

Heat the oven to 425°F. While the oven is heating, line 8 (3 1/2-inch) muffin-pan cups with the baking cups.
Season the beef as desired. Cook the beef and onion in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat.
Stir the ketchup, Worcestershire, soup, 1 cup cheese, and 1 cup potato nuggets in the skillet. Spoon about 1/2 cup beef mixture into each muffin-pan cup. Top with the remaining potato nuggets, pressing them into the top of the beef mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the potato nuggets are golden brown. Let the mini casseroles cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
