SPOILER: THIS ISN’T WHAT REAL LIFE LOOKS LIKE

Okay, family cooks: time to show us your tots! Or maybe it’s that we’re showing you ours. Either way: no, we’re not getting freaky, we’re talking tater tots. Because the beautifully golden brown nuggets of deliciousness can be so much more than a novelty treat. This week, we invite the guy who wrote the book on tots (literally!) to tell us how to use tater tots to turn simple, fast dinners into sure wins — especially with the kids.

Tots Out!

Dan Whalen's Tots: 50 Tot-ally Awesome Recipes for Totchos to Sweet Po-tot-o Pie

Okay, family cooks: time to show us your tots! Or maybe it’s that we’re showing you ours. Either way: we promise that we’re not getting freaky — we’re just talking tater tots. Because the beautifully golden brown nuggets of deliciousness can be so much more than a novelty treat.

This week, we invite the guy who wrote the book on tots (literally!) to tell us how to use tater tots to turn simple, fast dinners into sure wins — especially with the kids. From three ways to cook them so that they come out like fried to using them to make quickie latkes (hello holiday cooking shortcut!).

And, of course, we wouldn’t be Stacie and Meghan if we didn’t engage Dan on a conversation about whether or not making tots from scratch is worth it. (Spoiler alert: totally depends.)

Bollywood Theater is one of the handfuls of restaurants in Portland, Oregon that Stacie and her family visit every year when they visit the city. Everything there is fantastically delicious, but their proprietary chai blend is out of this world and, good thing for us, you can buy Bollywood Theater Chai online!
