Tatertot Casserole

So Tatertot Casserole seems to be a go to easy recipe for me but I have not made it in awhile, I am not sure where I got my original recipe but I have heard several versions of it and I think at is a versatile dish.

Brown your ground meat adding seasoning to your taste, I also cut up some mushrooms and added it to the meat mixture, drain grease!
Add two cans of cream of mushroom soup and mix well, let it heat through.
Today I drained a can of corn and added it to the mixture.
Place in a 9x13 baking dish
Add tatertots and bake for about 20 minutes!
After tatertots are done cooking cover with a ton of cheese and place back in the oven to melt the cheese, then enjoy!!!!

Tatertot Casserole Basic Recipe
2 Lbs ground Beef(seasoned to taste, browned and drained)
2 Cans Cream of Mushroom Soup or Cream of Chicken
32oz Bag of Tatertots
2 Cups Shredded Cheese

Preheat oven to 425. Mix cream of mushroom with ground beef and put in a 9X13 baking dish, place tatertots on top of meat mixture and place in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until tatertots are done(I usually go by whatever the bag of tatertots says). Take out of oven and cover with cheese, place back in oven just long enough to let the cheese melt. Take out of oven and Enjoy!
*Note this recipe can be changes however you like, I don't normally add corn but decided to add it last minute and it turned out great.
Sorry the pics are so small, I took them using my phone!
Do you add anything different to your tatertot casserole? If so, leave me a comment letting me know.
