I also make a similar one with tater tots:
1 lb ground turkey
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 can french style green beans
Basically you brown the ground turkey, drain it, mix in the soups and green beans. Put it in a 13x9 pan sprayed with cooking spray and top with tater tots.
Bake at 375 for around 35-40 minutes, until heated through and tater tots are crisp.
My DH loves that one, the boys like the cheeseburger one better though!
Ok just reporting back that I have yet to make the cheeseburger soup recipe but it is next on my cooking list I promise! I just made cheeseburger and fries again last night and will be doing tuna helper tomorrow to get through the rest of the week then it will be soup time!
Tuna helper - usually i do the store brand mix (usually cheesy broccoli flavor) and add in 2 cans of light tuna (in water) for extra protein and a 16oz bag of frozen peas and carrots. The extra tuna and peas & carrots mixture stretches the 5 servings out to about 7 or 8 servings and thus decreases some of the salt from the package mix and gets in some needed veggies in our diets.
I love these recipe and healthy living forums! I love hearing other people's clever ideas
New recipe that scored a 5 out of 5 from Mike this weekend. He's very stingy with his 5's when rating recipes so you know it must have been good. LOL
