I love potatoes. I absolutely love them, anyway I can get them. I'm to potatoes as Bubba was to shrimp!
French fried, baked, hash-browned, soups and stews....you name a way, I'm sure to love it.
Except tater tots.
Even drenching each individual tot in ketchup does not make them delicious, and I love ketchup. I could write a whole post on why ketchup is the most perfect condiment.
When Napoleon Dynamite put tater tots in his pants pocket, I was pretty sure I would never even taste one again. That scene alone was stomach turning, but when he ate one from his pocket....Dude, that's just not right.
But I still buy them. My kids and husband love them, so I will cook them as a super special treat, usually with a vegetarian corn-dog because I feel a little bad that I only buy vegetarian corn-dogs. Those corn-dogs taste great and there's no questionable meat parts in them!
Honestly, there is not enough ketchup in a Costco size bottle to make a tater tot yummy. I am so happy to know my nephews feel the same.
Rock on J.O.L. and M.A.L. and live the tater tot free life!
