This is my version of this North Dakota delicacy. Nice for a super quick put-together meal.
1 small bag of frozen mixed vegetables or 1 can of mixed vegetables
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
2lbs ground beef or turkey
1 cup French's fried onions
1 can milk (use the soup can to measure)
1 small bag tater tots
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown and season meat. Once cooked transfer to 9x13 baking pan. Add vegetables and fried onions to meat and mix. In a small bowl mix cream of mushroom soup and milk to thin out the soup just enough to make it pourable. Pour 1/2 of the soup mixture over the meat/veggies/onions. (You may pour all of it over the meat/veggie mix if you choose.) Pour tater tots over meat/veggies/onions. Sometimes it is easier to organize them on top. Then pour the remainder of soup mixture over tater tots if you chose to do half on the meat and half on top.
Bake for 45min-1hr. Tater tots should be nice golden brown.
