It’s National Tater Tot Day! Caviar Tater Tots! Bacon ‘n’ Egg Cups! Bacon Oreos! Culinary Wizardry!

Welcome To National Tater Tot Day!

It’s a day to celebrate the simple majesty of the tater tot! We all know what it is: a perfect little nugget of crispy potato on the outside, and shredded potato inside – it comes ready to be dipped, topped, or in some cases, layered underneath a burger!

It’s the perfect accompaniment to so much goodness, so let’s look at the tater tot – and also other culinary mashups that are as delicious to eat as they are fun to see!

Time To Celebrate Amazing Culinary Mashups!

Let’s begin with a tater tot topped with creme fraiche and caviar! This is from the great restaurant Archetype, located in St. Helena, California, in the heart of wine country…

Caviar Rules!

I love caviar, and I love tater tots, so this is a great great thing…peer upon it again:

The flavors of potato and caviar just sound right – and I found another example of this mashup as well, this time with caviar anchoring one end of a french fry:

And it reminded me that I once posted a story about this unique potato/caviar combo from Russia of course – the caviar flavored potato chip!

Sometimes the best food takes simple flavors and combines them in a unique way…and in America, perhaps there is nothing “simpler” than this combo:

Our Dinner Party. Theme was breakfast.

Bacon And Egg Cups!

As you can see, this would be the greatest way to start your day! It all begins when you make yourself one of these:

bacon cup

A bacon cup is a thing of beauty, and you make them easily by draping bacon over an inverted cupcake mold…

Then you do a baked egg dish with the bacon acting as your “cup” and you are on your way! It’s just one way to enjoy an “incredible edible egg!”

Eggs are so versatile, I like them on salads, in noodle soups, and of course, on pizza!

Here are some other amazing taste sensations: imagine a spanish tapas that combines fresh baby squid and chickpeas:

This delicious dish is served at Barcelona’s legendary tapas restaurant “Cal Pep”:

It’s just one of a dozen memorable bites we had when we visited, and you can read all about the meal by clicking here:

And of course, if you don’t feel like a bacon-wrapped baked egg, you can always make yourself a “Bacon shell taco!”

And please don’t forget about my all time favorite food item – one that has made me re-think what it means to call something “dessert”:

bacon oreo

The “Bacon Oreo!”

Yes, it’s the most majestic food item of all time – take some crispy bacon and nestle it right between those Oreo cookies, held in place by the silky frosting….what could be better than that?

Well, this for starters…

wild Bloody-Mary

Oh, that’s right, you need a drink – so bite into this Bloody Mary! It’s a strange new trend – finding a way to pack a drink with plenty to eat – like a roast chicken!

Fried Chicken Bloody Mary

See all about this new trend in “drinking and eating at the same time” by clicking on my story here:

And if you want to eat healthier, but just can’t shake your love of bacon, well I have an answer for you:

“Bacon Bowl” Salad!

There you have it, a nice healthy salad – and you get to eat the bowl as well! Now all you need is a bacon Martini!

EVERYONE seems to be serving bacon in drinks these days, but this thing of beauty is from a restaurant in Montreal that is “ALL BACON ALL THE TIME” – read about them here:

Imagine how great that Martini would taste with one of these!
