If anyone cares to read my profile they will see I have a special affinity for the potato.It doesn't matter how you fix it or slice it, I love them. I am going to make dinner in a little while and I just remembered that I have tator tots in the freezer. Yahoo!
I really think I'm a pretty decent cook and I have tried my hand with all types of ethnic, and international dishes. But tonight I want comfort food, and a tator tot casserole recipe given to me by a wonderful coworker years ago is calling my name.
I thought it would be fun to ask all of you, "So what do you do with Tator Tots?"
EAT THEM!!!! I'm suer lot's of 'hounds would turn their noses up at a plate of tots, but every once in awhile, I gotta have some. Oh, and bring on the ketchup.
Try my homemade version. I was kind of lax in my directirons but just fold the bacon bits (or not if you don't want them) in after preparing the batter and chopping the potatoes. Bake in mini-muffin cups as bites or in regular muffing tins as a side
I have a completely white bread version of Shepherd's Pie that involves Tater Tots. About once a year, I make a small single version for myself. One of my guilty pleasures!
Sometimes we make "nachos" out of them with lots of melted cheese, sour cream, salsa and hot sauce. I love them plain, with salt and Sriracha sauce.
