Charles Casserole

This is a fun recipe that i’ve tried several times trying to get just the right taste. I’ve find it with this recipe, it’s out-of-this-world.


1 1/2 Lb. Ground Beef ( the leaner the meat the better)

1 medium Onion, chopped

3 cloves Garlic, chopped

1 can (15 25 oz.) whole kernel Corn, drained

1 can of Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup

2 Cups of shredded Cheese (Cheddar)

1/2 Cup of Milk

4 Tsp. Sour Cream

1 bag (30 oz.) frozen Tater Tots (Ore-Ida crispy crowns recommended) They have to be circle tater tots


1. Before you get ready to make the casserole, let the tater tots sit out to thaw for an hour or so.

2. In a large skillet cook the onion until tender and translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Then add the ground beef and cook over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain the mixture and place into a large bowl.

3. In a small bowl combine the soup, milk and sour cream. Whisk until smooth. Add to hamburger mixture and stir to combine. Add corn and half of the cheddar cheese. Gently mix to combine.

4. Grease a 9×13 in. baking dish. Layer half of the tater tots on the bottom, pour the hamburger mixture over the top of the tater tots, then layer with the other half of the tater tots. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup cheese and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown and crunchy.

*Note: (Recommended) Prepare the mixture overnight and stick in the fridge. This way all of the ingredients to blend together.
