Welcome To National Tater Tot Day!

It’s a national day of celebration! Time to celebrate the simple majesty of the Tater Tot! We all know what a “tater tot” 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!

First invented in 1953, there are now more than 70 million pounds of tots sold each year!

A Cheeseburger With A Tater Tot Bun!

Yes, imagine your favorite cheeseburger – add bacon if you wish – all held together by buns of Tater Tots!

I would make – and devour – this in a second! And look at this photo – all you need to do it pre-bake your tots, then stack them upright, top with cheese, and stick under a broiler – voila! Cheesy Tater Tot Buns!

An Amazing Tater Tot Culinary Mashup!

I am a fan of taking a product and doing something completely different with it – and since a Tater Tot is one of the most delicious things ever devised by people who simply weren’t satisfied eating an “unbastardized” potato – I’m all in!

A “Caviar And Creme Fraiche-Topped Tater Tot!”

How about this amazing 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 taste combination – bravo to the Chef…let’s gaze upon it again:

The flavors of potato and caviar just sound right – and I found another example of this potato/caviar 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!

Back to Tater Tots, how about this combo?

Tater Tot Chop with Coca Cola Ketchup Atlanta Braves

Bite Into A “Tater Tot Chop” With Coca Cola Ketchup!

Yes, this is a Tater Top “Chop” with Coca-Cola Ketchup! The Atlanta Braves actually served this during baseball games!

Finally, bravo to Burger Kings for literally “stuffing their tots!”

Yes, fast food has taken the Tater Tot to a whole new cheesy level by stuffing that cheese right inside for you!

If you don’t feel like cooking, look for someone who does the Tots up for you – they seem to be a staple of almost every sports bar now – and even Wienerschnitzel got into the act:

So make sure you celebrate National Tater Tot Day the right way – and if you need an earlier “boost” to the effort, you may want to try this:

  1. I had no idea this was a National day 😂 but right before I saw this, a friend of mine was enjoying a potato bar at work!
    Really cool post.

  2. Can it be a year already? It seems like only yesterday was Tater Tot Day, and we still don’t have them in the UK! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
