Whenever I think about tater tots, my brain instantly goes back to breakfast in Grade School. My mom never served tater tots for breakfast at home, so the only place I could get them was at school. Why am I talking about tater tots? It’s National Tater Tot Day. Told ya there was a food holiday for everything. I am all about my food, so we’re gonna be celebrating as many food holidays as we can around here. Of course, I’m giving you guys some of my favorite tater tot recipes.
For anyone feeling adventurous (this would be my mom) and want to make their own tater tots, you will love this Homemade Tater Tot recipe from Damn Delicious. I prefer to just buy my tater tots, but if you have time, then, by all means, make them.
You ever see a recipe and you just know that you shouldn’t eat it because it’s so decadent that the calories must be sky high? Not to mention, it might sent you instantly to the restroom? That is exactly how I feel about this Jalapeno Popper Tater Tot Chicken Casserole from The Country Cook. This recipe looks so amazing that I will take whatever comes after eating this. I will definitely be trying this recipe soon and probably swapping the chicken out for breakfast sausage because I’m slightly obsessed with spicy sausage. I’ll let you know how it goes.
I am a fan of anything on a stick. Cake on a stick, meat on a stick, so why not tater tots on a stick. These Cheeseburger Tots from Made with Happy look so good and they are great for the Super Bowl.
My favorite recipe of all is from Life as a Strawberry for…get ready…Smoked Gouda Bacon Loaded Tater Tots. Let me say that again. Smoked.Gouda.Bacon.Loaded.Tater.Tots! Take me now! I would make these and not want to share with anyone. It’s probably a good thing I don’t have kids because I would totally have to make these once they went to bed. #dontJudgeMe
So let me know which ones of these recipes sounds tempting to you in the comments below.
