This was amazing. Plates were licked clean by everyone including the children. This is a definite winner in our household 😋. The only changes I made was I added a pkt of taco seasoning, 1 and a half cups of frozen peas, corn and carrots and used cream of chicken soup instead. It turned out perfect.

This is soo good on a cold winter night. Amazing comfort food. While it doesn’t look appealing it’s so yummy! My partner who doesn’t eat potato gems loves it. Go figure lol

This was so good!! After reading the other reviews I took a couple of their suggestions on board such as adding taco seasoning to the mix as well as frozen mixed vegetables and the result was clean plates from the whole family! So tasty and a perfect tummy warmer on a Winters night!

Tried this for the first time last night, me and hubby loved it. Going to be a regular meal in our house.
Being in the UK we couldn’t get hold of tater tots/potato gems so used potato croquettes which are available in all supermarkets here.
Came out beautiful.
We even added peas, sweetcorn and greens to the mix before cooking.

This is one of our family favourites, I chop up celery, carrot and mushrooms and cook with the mince. Serve it with either salad or steamed green veggies.

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!!

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.
