Sweet & Savory Thursday ~~ Busy Day Casserole

                                                    BUSY DAY CASSEROLE

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • Seasonings of your choice such as garlic powder, seasoned pepper, Worcestershire Sauce, seasoned salt, dehydrated onion, etc.
  • 1 - 14 oz. can of cut green beans
  • 1 - 10.5 oz can Cream of Mushroom soup
  • 1 -  24 oz. bag of frozen tater tots

  • Place uncooked ground beef in bottom of 9 x 9 inch square bake ware.
  • Sprinkle with seasonings of your choice.
  • Drain liquid from can of green beans and spread evenly over top of seasoned meat.
  • Spread cream soup evenly over top of green beans.
  • Layer tater tots on top.
  • Bake one hour at 350 degrees or until tots are golden brown.

Helpful hints:
  • The very best part about this recipe is that it can be assembled in about 10 minutes flat, and you do not need to brown the ground beef before placing it inside the bake ware!  This is a huge time saver to say the least.
  • It's fun to experiment using different seasonings in this recipe.  I would start out using the seasonings that your family likes the best, and then add some additional ones the next time you make it.
  • This is a great dish to take to someone who has just experienced a death in the family; to the mother of a newborn baby; to a potluck dinner, and so forth.
  • The recipe can be made ahead of time and placed in the freezer to be cooked at a later time.
  • Some people like to put Ketchup on top before eating their serving of it.
  • This recipe has continued to be one of our family favorites for generations. 
  • I have made this dish in a crock pot and cooked it on a low setting for about 6 hours and it turned out very well!

Living in the west, it puts a big smile on my face to be using beef and potatoes when preparing meals for my family.  

Happy Eating & Happy Reading!

  1. Haha! I bet I've had this recipe from you for 20 years. It's a goody for sure. The Worcestershire sauce makes it for me.
