The kind of bacon you use here matters. This recipe is from The Riddler in San Francisco, CA.

Ingredients

  • 4 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 ounces thick-cut smoked bacon, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 32-ounce bag tater tots (preferably Ore-Ida), room temperature
  • 3 ounces sharp cheddar, coarsely grated (about ¾ cup)
  • Sour cream and cilantro leaves with tender stems (for serving)

Recipe Preparation

  • Heat a medium nonstick skillet, preferably cast-iron, over high. Add scallions, season with sea salt, and cook, stirring often, until charred on all sides, 5–7 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.

  • Reduce heat to medium and cook bacon in same skillet, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and crisp, 8–10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towels. Strain bacon fat through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl.

  • Heat a regular or Belgian waffle iron. Brush liberally with bacon fat. Arrange tater tots in an even layer across entire surface of waffle iron; pile another handful or two of tots over if you’re using a Belgian waffle iron. Season with salt. Press down on lid to close (use lid lock if you have one) and cook waffle until golden brown, 8–12 minutes depending on your iron.

  • Transfer waffle to a plate; top with cheese and let sit a minute to melt. Top with a dollop of sour cream and scatter cilantro over. Pile on scallions and bacon and serve.

Reviews SectionTo be honest, I didn't expect much from this recipe but I was DEAD WRONG! The tater tots are perfection and every topping served it's place. I had this with glass of champagne and it cut through the fat perfectly. It's also a great hangover food for when you drink too much champagne with it!kelleycothron8693Nashville, TN12/29/19

9 Tater Tot Recipes to Take Your Tots to the Next Level

Are you looking to jazz up your favorite crispy potato tater tots? While tater tots may be considered a childish cafeteria food, with a few genius ideas they can be transformed to serve to a grown-up audience (while also satisfying your inner child).

And of course, when you think tater tots can’t get any better, may I remind you they are the perfect vessel for cheese? Here are some crispy, gooey, cheesy tater tot recipes to change how you think about tots.


Recipe Summary

  • 1 (32 ounce) package frozen bite-size potato nuggets (such as Tater Tots®)
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream (Optional)
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 ½ cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream, or to taste (Optional)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Arrange potato nuggets in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels and chop coarsely.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat add shallot and cook until fragrant. Stir in flour and cook until light golden, about 2 minutes. Whisk in milk and 2 tablespoons sour cream stir until smooth and thick, about 5 minutes. Season with black pepper and nutmeg. Stir in 1 cup Cheddar cheese until fully melted.

Transfer potatoes to a 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle bacon on top. Pour cheese sauce over the potatoes. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese on top.

Bake in the preheated oven just until cheese melts, about 7 minutes. Remove from the oven top with green onions and 2 tablespoons sour cream.

Carne Asada & Potato Casserole

A weeknight treat for the whole family! This new take on a potato casserole is spiced up with Super Crispy Waffle Fries for extra flavor, combined with carne asada for a protein infusion and some green chile folded in for a little heat. This comes together in minutes and will disappear in seconds! In partnership with Real Food By Dad.

Instructions

OVEN: Preheat oven to 425°F. Arrange frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 30 minutes or until crispy. Stir halfway through cooking time to ensure even baking.

AIR FRYER: Preheat air fryer to 360°F. Fill basket with half the frozen potatoes. Cook 9-10 minutes. Slide out basket halfway through cooking time and shake.

In a large bowl combine all ingredients except toppings. Scrape mixture into a 3 quart casserole pan. Bake until mixture bubbles and top becomes golden, about 45 minutes.

Remove from oven and set aside for ten minutes. Top with peppers flakes, cheese and green onions when ready to serve.


Yes, you may buy shredded potatoes to use, frozen or fresh. I suggest the fresh shredded potatoes if you are not grating your own since there will not be as much moisture in these. If you buy the frozen shredded potatoes, be sure to let them thaw and remove as much of the excess water as possible with a paper towel or clean cloth.

Super Bowl snack idea: Use Tater Tots to make waffles, nachos and poutine

Whether you're rooting for the Atlanta Falcons, the New England Patriots, the commercials or the puppies on Super Bowl Sunday, you have common ground with your neighbors: You're doing it with a heart-stopping plate of snack food in hand.

The Super Bowl — this year, Sunday, Feb. 5 — is the Thanksgiving of American sports, with chicken wings replacing turkey, nachos instead of stuffing, jalapeno poppers subbing for green bean casserole. And then there are the spuds: You're missing out on grade-A gorging if you skip the humble starch.

Mashed potatoes, however, won't do. Too dinner table. No, the Super Bowl is prime time for another potato prep: tots.

I'm a fan of store-bought, freezer-aisle tots (Tater Tots, if we're being proper Ore-Ida owns the trademark), which are way easier than making tots from scratch. (Trust me.) And sure, an unadorned tot is fine on its own, but for the Super Bowl, it's all about going big or losing to someone's bacon-weave taco. Top your tots with Buffalo chicken and blue cheese. Pair them with curds and a poutine-inspired gravy. Have you ever thought about putting tots in the waffle iron? Well you should, and your friends will thank you.

Take home MVP (Most Valuable Potato, if you'd like) this year with these three tot-ally gluttonous upgrades.

1 package (28 ounces) frozen Tater Tots

8 ounces crumbled blue cheese

1 Place chicken in a slow cooker. Coat chicken in garlic and cayenne powders. Add Worcestershire, butter and hot sauce. Cover and cook on low until fork tender, about 4 hours.

2 Once cooked, taste sauce and season with salt and pepper, if needed. Using two forks, shred the finished chicken finely. Reserve any sauce.

3 When ready to serve the chicken, prepare tots in oven according to package instructions. Remove from oven, and place on a serving platter or plate. Top with shredded chicken, blue cheese and ranch dressing.

Tot waffles are an internet sensation, and for good reason. The crispy wedges of carbohydrates offer a blank canvas. Set up a toppings bar, and let guests overindulge.

2 packages (28 ounces) frozen Tater Tots

1 Thaw tots in fridge for an hour or more, or in batches in a microwave, about 2 minutes.

2 Heat oven to 200 degrees. Heat waffle iron, lightly brushing with vegetable oil or spraying with nonstick cooking spray. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

3 Working in batches, fill waffle iron with a single layer of tots in a tightly packed grid, lined up like little soldiers. If you don't pack the tots tightly enough, the waffles will come out weblike, with holes in some sections. When closing the waffle iron, give a good squeeze and weight with a cast-iron skillet or other heavy equipment. This will flatten the tots, ensuring you get a full waffle with no holes. Cook until browned and crisp, 8 to 18 minutes the timing greatly depends on the power of your waffle iron. You're aiming for an extra-crispy waffle.

4 Transfer waffle to the prepared baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining tots.

Toppings bar ideas

Sour cream, crumbled bacon, shredded cheddar, chives or green onion: Your classic baked potato, but now extra crispy, thanks to the waffle iron.

Marinara, mozzarella, pepperoni and other pizza toppings: Place in the oven to melt cheese, and you've got tot pizzas.

Guacamole and crumbled-up pork rinds: I call it a lapsed hippie's avocado toast.

Pulled pork, slaw, cheddar: Want to get cray? Use two waffles to create the world's best pulled pork sandwich.

Taking cues from the French fries, curds and gravy dish from our neighbors to the north, pou-tot-tine is a no-brainer.
