The Eight Dollar Tater® Tot

Q:

I want a decadent appetizer that has a great food cost and includes potatoes. Have you seen anything in your travels that would make a terrific bar food choice?

A:

Merchants tots

OMG yes! Just got back from the happening scene on Broadway in Nashville where at Merchant's restaurant they serve up a cast iron skillet load of duck fat tots with three dips for $8. Yes, you read that right... and there was one on nearly every table I saw. Think of the profits every time one of those orders come out of the kitchen (in addition to hardly any labor costs to prep.) See the picture above.
