Not Your Grandma’s Hot Dish

Today I veganized my Grandma’s Tater Tots Hot Dish (she is from Minnesota, which is why it is a hot dish, not a casserole). With her recipe, you mix browed ground beef with cream of mushroom soup and a can of vegetables. Then you put a layer of tater tots on top.

In my version, I used fake ground beef and cheese sauce. I left out the can vegetables because I think their gross. Then I put a layer of tater tots on top and baked it for 25 minutes in a 450-degree oven. It smelled good but it did not taste good. I have not used fake ground beef since February and I think I have lost the taste for it. I think next time I might use mashed up beans instead of the fake ground beef.
