I’m always happy to hear from fellow cakers (it’s therapeutic), so when Bob from Baltimore emailed to share his recipe for Tater Tot Casserole, I grabbed my can opener and gave it a try.
I’m thrilled to report that Bob’s Tater Tot Casserole is not only delicious, but it also has green beans. And that makes this caker recipe unique in two ways: 1) the vegetable isn't broccoli and 2) it probably has vitamins.

Here’s Bob’s recipe in his own words:
Brown 1 pound of ground beef with a big chopped onion. Drain.
Mix with 1 can Cream of Celery soup and 1 can Cream of Chicken soup.
Add 1 cup cut green beans, salt (go easy) and pepper to taste, and 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder. (Yes, 1/8 teaspoon. Heaven forbid this should have any flavor.)
Pour into a greased flat baking dish and cover with Tater Tots (the original recipe called for 4 cups of them, but I’ve never measured Tater Tots in my life and have no intention of starting now. Cover the whole dish with ‘em.)
Bake at 375F for 40-50 minutes, or until the Tots are crispy.
I usually up the amount of green beans considerably, and sometimes throw some grated cheese on top. Because we like cheese.
