I did this with ground meat onion and seasonings and a small pack of mixed
veggies (optional) layered on the bottom of the pan, tater tots layered all
over the top tightly packed, moshroom soup over it all and shredded cheese
on top. I baked it.
uncovered at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Everyone really liked it.
Meat was not frozen, so if meatballs are frozen, thaw them out first and
mash them to mix with seasonings, onion and vegies.
you could use any frozen veggies you like or leave them out.

Well, in that situation I'd do one of the two following ideas.
1. Mix tater tots and meatballs, frozen, in a dish or crock pot with some
sautéed onion and maybe a can of mushroom pieces and stems. Pour a can of
cream of mushroom soup over it and sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top.
Then bake (you'll need to decide how long to bake) or cook in the crock
pot, covered, until the tater tots are done and the cheese is melted.
(You'll need to test it and decide on how fast you want it to cook to
determine what temperature you use on the crock pot) Or you could replace
the soup with spaghetti sauce and the cheddar with parmesan. In this case
I'd definitely opt for the onion and mushrooms, possibly even fresh sliced,
and consider black olive slices and diced bell pepper too.
You'll need to figure out the temperature particulars -- tater tots are
cooked at around 400°f, while that'd be too hot for the meatballs, so you'll
have to play with it a bit.
