I just brown hamburger with a little onion and beef boullion. Then I layer it on the bottom of the pan. Next put the tater tots on. I then add one can of milk to a can of cream of mushroom soup, pour that over the top of the tater tots. I then top it of with a little sharp cheese. Cover and bake for 30 min. I like simple!!!

I have a recipe for a hamburger casserole that I was reminded of when you said Worcestershire sauce. I haven't made it in many years. It was good to have around when feeding a family of five.
No salt and pepper as sauce takes care of that.

1 lb of hamburger
1 can cr of chicken soup
1/2 cup celery
1 can cr of mushroom soup
1/2 cup uncooked rice
3 TBS Worcestershire sauce
3 TBS soy sauce

Simmer hamburger, onion, celery, approx. 10 minutes. Drain. Add 2 cans of soup, rice and sauces into a 2 quart greased casserole dish. Cover with a lid or foil. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.

If I remember correctly, it is salty tasting.

* 2 pounds lean ground beef
* 1 large onion, chopped
* 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
* 1 teaspoon salt-free herb seasoning blend
* 1 pinch ground black pepper to taste
* 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
* 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
* 1 (16 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
* 1 (16 ounce) package frozen potato rounds
* 8 slices Swiss cheese


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Crumble the ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. When it starts to release some juices, add the onion. Season with Worcestershire sauce and pepper. When the beef is nearly completely browned, add the mushrooms, and saute them for a couple of minutes. Drain off any excess grease, and stir in the cream of mushroom soup and spinach.


3. Transfer the beef mixture to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with slices of Swiss cheese. Neatly layer the potato rounds over the top.
4. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, until the potato rounds are toasted.

I top my casserole with shredded cheese, after mixing in a can of cheddar broccoli and a can of cream of mushroom. It is a great quick meal, especially when you're feeding 6+ adults!

My husband also loved this dish his mom made. The newer version from Weight Watchers is really good. Brown hamburger in skillet; drain all fat; put back in skillet, adding 1 chopped onion; 1 tablespoon garlic; browning. Then add 1 can low fat chicken soup; 1 can sliced green beans (drained);4 ounces low fat Velvetta Cheese, melt all together, put in casserole dish adding tater tots on top, . Bake 350 - 45 minutes This is really good. Laverne

I make this recipe alot. I use Cream of Celery soup instead because we don't like mushrooms (even small ones). It really gives it a different flavor - one we like. I also add shredded cheddar cheese before I layer the tator tots.

I have found a wonderful use for those leftover tater tots! I freeze any leftovers in a freezer bag until needed and then pull them out for a quick breakfast treat!
