 Toady we’re talking tater tots. Do you like them or hate them? I feel like tots were such a huge hit back in the day, but now a days you just don’t see them all that much. Well let’s change that starting today with this yummy recipe.

Tater tots hold a special place in my heart. I know that sounds silly since tater tots are just potatoes, but the memories are what’s so special. When I was little, maybe 9 or 10 we did’t have pizza Friday’s, but fish sticks and tater tot nights. I’d patiently wait until my mom got home from work so she could stick everything in the oven.

I remember thinking that fish sticks and tater tots were so hard to make. How was I ever going to make this on my own one day. Plus mom would make this yummy dipping sauce. It was so delicious! Ha, how silly our young mind works. Jump forward 24 years and I still love tater tots. I sometimes forget about them, but when ever I’m in the freezer isle at the grocery store I have to get them.
