Everyone loves tater tots. Made of deep-fried, grated potatoes, these small sized snacks are a favorite with kids in particular. Crispy and tasty, they are regulars at most evening parties or snack times. However, instead of simply frying and then serving them with sauce, consider giving these traditional snacks a twist with these easy to make tater tot recipes.
Make your own Lasagna version of the tater tot, giving it a quirky name like Totsagna. This tasty tea time snack is ridiculously easy to make and can be stirred up in a matter of minutes. Simply replace the rows of noodles you find in lasagna with tater tots instead.
Another rather easy way to do this is to stir the tater tots into a ricotta mixture and then pour it into a casserole dish. Top the mixture with shredded cheese and marina, and bake it in the oven. Voila! Your totsagna will be ready in no time at all.
Cheese – Garlic Tater Tot Bread
How about using tater tots to create your very own cheesy garlic bread snack? Since the tater tots already contain a fair amount of garlic seasoning, consider adding the cheese alone for this snack.
Combine some cheese, butter and egg in a mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients nicely and add the tater tots into the mix. Pour all mixture into the Bundt pan, ensuring that they stick together by packing them tightly. Cook the tater tots in an oven at 425° F for about 30 minutes. Cool the tater tots for about 10 minutes and then remove them from the pan.

Sprinkle some cheese into each tater tot cup. Crack an egg on top of the cups and then place them inside an oven. Cook at 325° F for about 20 minutes. Serve with hot sauce.
