This recipe is easy and yummy. I make a few casseroles at the same time and freeze them for later. If you plan to freeze it, you won't need to bake the tator tots ahead of time.
Hearty Beef 'N Potato Casserole
4 cups or 1/2 of a 30 oz bag of hash round potatoes
1 lb ground beef
1-16 oz pkg frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
