Tater tots are a treat for potato lovers and are one of the best comfort foods to be discovered. While we have a wide range of frozen food options to simply buy prepped tots and fry or bake them at home, home-made tater tots have their own charm and one of the best things about them is that you can experiment and try your favorite tots with different fillings as well!
First of all, the home-made recipe for tater tots is simple. All you have to do is blanch a few potatoes leaving them half done, shred them, and mix them with some onion powder, garlic powder, paprika powder, salt, pepper, cornflour, and rice flour. Make the mixture into tots, let them sit for a bit in the refrigerator or freezer, and then fry them. But for the twist that we want to introduce into your life of tots, here are some unique filling that you can try out when making them at home for yourself and your family and friends!
Why not go wild and explore a sausage filling in your homemade tots. Simply slice uncooked sausages into tiny cylinders that will fit right into the center of the tater tot mixture. Form the tots, fry, and enjoy! Crispy on the outside, meaty on the inside!
If you are looking to enjoy an all veg, center-filled tater tot then simply boil and mash your favorite veggies and fill them in the center of your tater tots before throwing them into the pan. You can also finely chop the veggies and fill them in raw without mashing them and enjoy the bite of vegetable chunks in the center of the tater tots. If you want to, you can even mix some cheese with the vegetables to add extra flavor and enjoy a flavorful burst with each veggie tot!
Whatever you go for, make sure to have fun with it because there are no rules when experimenting with tater tots! Of course, the filling will call for a bigger tater tot in size but that is just another plus point for tater tot lovers. One thing is for sure though, once you discover which filling you like the most, you will find it hard to go back to plain tater tots though the classics have a charm of their own!
