    Awesome! Pleased my whole family (which is miraculous) - I did add the can of green beans - I think next time I will probably add 2 cans.. the only problem was that it was so delicious it was hard to stop at one serving! YUM! - 7/18/10

    Looooveeee Tater Tot casserole, especially this lower fat version!!! I usually put the cheese on top of the meat mixutre then top with the Taters. I don't like the crispy cheese on top either.... Other than that, this is perfect! Side with a salad or a green veggie and you're GTG!! - 11/15/11

    After reading the comments, I added a can of green beans, dry onion soup mix, and about 1/3 cup milk for a creamier texture. Next time I will add a few shredded carrots for color and likely omit the cheese. Everyone loved it and I will make it again! - 8/13/13

    I make almost this exact same thing, but I make it a little different. I put the ground turkey uncooked in the pan, top with sauted onions, cream of chck (cant do mush.) and the tater tots. Takes about 1 hour in the oven to cook. Less dishes & steps. - 5/24/12

    Made this dish for my husband and I and we loved it. We used soy crumble instead of the ground turkey. Not really sure if it saves a whole lot of calories, but it only takes less than 5 mins to cook the soy crumble, so its propably quicker. - 8/18/10

    This turned out awesome. I used lean ground buffalo instead of turkey. I also added green beans to get an extra veggie serving. It turned out wonderful. The only thing I didn't like was the cheese turned into a hard crust on top of the tater tots instead of melting. But that's my own fault I think. - 7/23/10
