Hey Good Lookin'! Whatcha Got Cookin'?

Up until recently, I don't think I've ever bought Ore-Ida products for home, but I know that Ore-Ida Tater Tots are ALWAYS a treat when we're out and about.  (One of our local fast food restaurants serves chili cheese Tots and they're positively irresistible!)  So this month I had the opportunity to buy Tater Tots, bring them home, and play.  What fun!

I could have "mixed and matched" but I have to admit, I stuck with the Tots.

My first recipe was my very own version of chili cheese tots, and I have to say that it was ten times better than what we get at a restaurant.  I baked my tots until they were golden and crisp, then topped them with a wonderful AR chili recipe:  http://allrecipes.com/recipe/simply-sensational-chili/detail.aspx<

My second recipe was my own take on another fast food favorite:  Tater Tot breakfast burritos.  I scrambled some eggs with cheddar cheese, and wrapped them, along with the Tots, in a soft, warm flour tortilla.  (You can add breakfast meats and veggies as well, to add more flavor.)  They were a huge hit with my family!

My third and final recipe was the simplest:  Tater Tots as a side to eggs over-easy.

It was easy to work with Ore-Ida Tater Tots.  We were not at a loss as to what to do with them.  Every time I turned around, my daughter was requesting Tater Tots.  If she had it her way, they would be an ingredient/side in almost anything I cooked.  And I feel exactly the same way!
