The best tater tot bakes, dips and casserole recipes
I’m going to let you in on a little secret: tater tots are one of my guilty pleasures. I love them dipped in ketchup and I love when they are incorporated into unique tater tot recipes.
They’re great for parties where you have to feed a ton of kids or for a quick and easy meal when you’re craving comfort food.
I’ve gathered some of my favorite ways to incorporate tater tots into a meal any time of the day. They include tater tot bakes and dips as well as casseroles that can be cooked in a crock pot.
There are also tater tot nachos and kabobs. In addition, check out the jalapeño poppers topped with tater tots and tater tots topped with chilli or sloppy joes. But my favorite, I’ll reserve that place on the list for bacon wrapped tater tots, because everything truly does taste better wrapped in bacon.
