Customize this classic side dish with any meat, vegetable and starch.
Minnesota Hot Dish
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 package frozen tater tots (you probably won't use the whole package, but this is usually the smallest size I can find)
- 2 10-ounce cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 2 cans vegetables (green beans, corn, peas, whatever you like)
- 4 ounces cheddar cheese shredded
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown the ground beef and drain the fat.
Grease a 2-1/2 quart dish, and add beef.
Drain liquid from canned vegetables, then spread over the meat.
Spread soup over the vegetables; do not add water or milk. Use soup in concentrated form.
Top with tater tots.
Bake, uncovered, 50 minutes.
Serve topped with shredded cheddar cheese.
Note: You can substitute a bag of frozen vegetables for the canned.
