Green Bean Tater Tot Casserole

No cream of "stuff" soup for this dish.  Make your own mushroom gravy, it's really easy!

Green Bean Tater Tot Casserole                                                         Printable Recipe

2 Tablespoons butter
8 ounces sliced/cleaned mushrooms
few dashes of salt
2 Tablespoons flour (or gluten free all purpose flour)
2 cups chicken or beef broth (preferably homemade) or milk
Dash or two of dried thyme

1 pound ground beef
1 can green beans
tater tots or tater rounds (check your ingredients for wheat!)

Make mushroom gravy with first 6 ingredients.
Brown hamburger, drain if needed.
Mix in green beans and mushroom gravy.
Pour into glass baking dish. This one was 2.2 qt rectangular (more surface area for tots!)
Add tater tots or rounds
You can bake according to tot directions (mine was 450 degrees for 25 mins) or bake at 350 for 30 minutes and then broil. My husband chose the latter of the two this time.

  1. I tried those tater tot rounds for the first a few months ago and like them even better than the original ones. I have also put mixed vegs in instead of just green beans.
