“Tater tot” casserole

I had a craving for this dish from my childhood, only to learn that all tater tots have wheat in/on them. At the same time, I also learned that the cheese soup we’d always used was also off limits (I’m living gluten free). Thus, I set out to make a gluten-free version of this fun easy meal.

“Tater tot” casserole
scant 2 pounds lean ground beef
1 large onion
salt and pepper, to taste
3 cans french-cut green beans
1.5 pounds Velveeta
1 1/2 cups milk
1 2-pound bag gluten-free southern-style hash browns

In a large skillet, brown the hamburger; drain if necessary. Add the onion, chopped; cook until transparent. Meanwhile, chunk the Velveeta and place in a microwave-safe container and cook, stirring frequently, until melted. Stir in the milk. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Spread this meat mixture in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. On top of this, layer the green beans, drained. Spread the hash browns atop the green beans. Pour cheese mixture evenly over the casserole. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes, or until the hash browns are cooked and beginning to brown.
