Updated: Mar 28, 2019

When life gives you tator tots you make "Can't Get Enough Tator Tot Bake."

What better way to celebrate National Tator Tot Day than with a one pan plan.

It's easy, tasty and quick. From 9-90 all will be pleased. They want be able to get enough. Most would think oh yeah lets fry tator tots cover in cheese and chili or just some ketchup, well I have taken the tator tot to the next level. Its really a blank canvas, you can do anything with them. So let your mind run wild with ideas, but make sure to start with my recipe and go from there. I can remember having tator tots at school as a child and couldn't wait, they was something we never had much and it was a special treat when we got them. That little crunchy, salty bits of heaven. It was like a extra gift from Santa every time. "You will lay your ears back and dive in."
