Tator Tot Atrocity

We aren’t Minnesota-natives, so we all had pretty strong feelings about this dish. Listen to the podcast to hear our reactions to eating and cooking this thing, but the recipe we followed is below.

Ingredients
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 10 3/4 ounce can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
1 16 oz. package frozen mixed vegetables
1 16 oz. package frozen tater tots
2 cups cheddar cheese

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350°
Grease baking dish
Chop onion finely, throw in the skillet. Add the ground beef and cook through.
Line bottom of dish with cooked ground beef. Add layer of frozen veggies.
In a separate container, stir soup and milk together.
Layer in cheese into dish, and then pour the soup/milk mixture over everything, drowning all other ingredients in goo.
