Love this dish. I use hash browns instead of tater tots. Serve with veggies. It’s a real lazy family fave!

This is a family favourite! So easy and very tasty! I added a grated carrot to get some hidden veggies in!

This is an absolute favourite!! So easy & tasty. I add one diced carrot, 2-3 stalks of celery, bacon pieces & chopped mushrooms. I gently fry off the onion & bacon, add the celery & carrot to the pan for a few minutes, toss these into the slow cooker & then brown off the meat. I always use the cream of chicken soup with this one. Delicious!!

Cheap & easy meal. We served ours with broccoli, cauliflower & carrot on the side.

Has anyone tried using gnocchi instead of potato gems in this dish?

Have only made this once and used cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom. My husband and children loved it, something easy for my father and brother’s to make too 🙂

I thought this was nice. Quick and easy. I didn’t use the full can of soup as I only used 500gm mince and didn’t want it to get to wet. It turned out perfect for my taste.
