Baked Green Beans
3 cans green beans,* drained
1 stick of butter
¾ c. brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter. Add brown sugar to the melted butter and stir until combined. Place green beans in a baking dish and layer the bacon slices on top of the green beans. Pour brown sugar/butter mixture evenly over green beans and bacon. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Bake uncovered for 1 hour.
*I’m usually not a fan of canned green beans but I’ve found that they really are better for this recipe than frozen or fresh green beans.

2 cans cream of mushroom soup (I like to use one regular and one reduced fat)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a skillet, brown the ground beef and onions. Season with salt and pepper while cooking. If the ground beef is very lean, a little extra virgin olive oil may need to be added. Drain any excess fat from the cooked ground beef, if needed. Stir in cream of mushroom soup. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish. Cover the mixture with the desired amount of cheese. Then top with enough tater tots to cover the casserole. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the tater tots are brown and the cheesy is bubbly.
