OP is in fly-over territory. Which is it, Michigan, Wisconsin, Missouri,which?
Do you have a will and life insurance?
What are you going to wear to the dance, Napoleon?
Did you get butt-pee?
OP, we're still furtively experimenting with the Jillahpino pepper poppers stuffed with nacho cheese-like food.
We're nowhere ready for intricate preparations involving tater tots, bacon, sour cream, and/or tomatoes.
Just settle down. We don't do onion blossoms, but I can get you a handful of funions. We also have some horsey sauce packets in the kitchen from Arby's. They'll be free with purchase.
$18 for this? You ate pub food, OP. No one is impressed.
The dish you describe is fairly common as "loaded fries", but tater tots have also risen in popularity with the "comfort food" trends of the last decade.
Are you in some godforsaken rural pocket of a square state? Someplace even Applebee's and Chili's haven't saturated yet? How on earth could this common dish be considered "news" in your world?
I don't like tater tots either, R12!
Sounds like one of those foods that looks the exact same leaving your body as it did when it entered.
Let OP have his tater tots! I'd like to try them, OP.
Sounds like something Ma Duggar would whip up.
They'd never serve this at the tapas bar.
Are you insane!? Tots and Ketchup. That's it. case closed.
I could live on fun food like appetizers. I grew up on meat loaf, mashed potatoess and other bland things from The Hausfrau Cookbook. I defiantly exist now on what I call "picnic food".
R21 I did, too, but still tater tots just don't do it for me!
Is Tater Tot Mr. Potato's son?
It's food, not love, OP.
There's a recipe online for healthier tater tots; they're tastier too. Then use a little real cheese or homemade cheese sauce, yogurt, healthy jalapenos, chopped tomatoes, and leave off the fatty bacon.
