Growing up, and even now, I am always the one at the table at a restaurant to order a burger or sandwich, 10% for the burger and 90% for the fries that come with it. Let's be honest they can really be the best part, and I have to say when a restaurant offers tater tots instead I jump at the chance! I love how bite sized they are and how they have that crunchy outer coating with the shredded potato inside. Not to mention the dipping sauce possibilities!
So for the dipping sauce for these easy, homemade tater tots we turned to beer cheese yet again! It really is the perfect cheesy dip with that extra level of flavor and not to mention it is perfect for football season.
These tater tots are your classic shredded potato tot with some scallions sprinkled on top and of course the beer cheese- but some sort of dipping sauce side is honestly just a given. Let's talk ingredients for the tater tots.
Then of course with either canola oil or vegetable oil for frying, whichever you prefer!
So forming the tots can be super easy if you follow these simple steps to help with keeping the shredded potato together-
While making these it was one of those recipes where I needed to remind myself that perfection is not what we're going for here. If some are a little smaller or larger than others or more circular or square that's okay. They will all end up delicious no matter the shape!
Once your tater tots are done frying, then it's my personal favorite part- time to make the beer cheese! It's easy and really does bring the tots to the next level. In terms of the "beer" part of the beer cheese, you can choose whatever kind of lager you would like depending on your taste preference when it comes to beer.
Once you're done with the beer cheese and frying then go ahead and sit back and enjoy! Perfect for winter football nights or for that summer weekend barbecue.
