Tater Tots are one of the most versatile foods you’ll ever encounter. Crispy, crunchy, salty, light, slightly greasy, and pillowy, they hold up a lot better than French fries when piled with toppings. We’re not saying there’s anything wrong with dunking your tots into ketchup or cheese sauce, but it doesn’t hurt to try to think outside the box. Here are some spins that will get your creative juices flowing:
Pizza: Top your tots with marinara sauce and shredded mozzarella, then get it all nice and bubbly under the broiler. For an extra kick, add some chopped pepperoni.
Breakfast: There are few better base layers for bacon or sausage, scrambled eggs, and melted American cheese than tater tots.
Totchos: Sub the chips in your favorite nacho recipe with tater tots, and you’ll never look at regular nachos the same way again.
Baked Potato: Mix up your tots with sour cream, shredded cheese, bacon, and chives, and your family will definitely thank you.
Guac Tots: Heap spoonfuls of your favorite guacamole on top of your tots. Pro tip: Bacon doesn’t hurt, either.
