History of Tater Tot Day
This lovely day began its cult to Tater Tot in 2009. It began as a food writer's attempt at filling his copy quota. Once he made it into Twitter's cyberspace, it was an instant hit! When you think about those little rectangular potato chips, does your stomach jump a little with excitement? I know I do! Potatoes themselves have been one of the staple foods for about 400 years. Did you know that currently, it is the fourth largest crop in the world? That's a lot of potatoes! I know the joke has been used to play hot potato for thousands of years but let's keep our minds focused on recent history. Baking, mashing, frying, boiling or chopping and making delicious pancakes really isn't a wrong way to serve them.
But one of the most joy and happiness is the good eater. It is a friend for young and old alike. Served with a bit of ketchup or served with a layer of chili and cheese are endless options. Take a moment to review the history of the tot and the recipes specific to it.
