Are Tots the New French Fries?

Q:

I’ve been seeing tater tots popping up increasingly often on menus anywhere from Burger King to upscale dining locations. Are they becoming the new French fries?

A:

Good observation! I have also seen them appear with more frequency on the Food Network and Cooking Channel. They’re a delicious comfort food that both kids and adults love and can be made from scratch from any size Idaho russet potato. See the recipe links below for a couple of recipes to try out.
