    what are they?

    well ...

    INGREDIENTS:
    POTATOES, VEGETABLE OIL (SUNFLOWER, COTTONSEED, SOYBEAN, AND/OR CANOLA), SALT, YELLOW CORN FLOUR, ONIONS, DEXTROSE, DISODIUM DIHYDROGEN PYROPHOSPHATE, NATURAL FLAVORING.

    not too bad, actually, compared to many other processed foods - its nice to actually see "potatoes" as the first ingredient! :D

    Honestly I don't think I could have the patience to sit and wrap tots all day in bacon. Fry the damn tots, cook the bacon, crumble bacon over tots and call it a day. Moving on.:thumb::D

    and besides, how are you supposed to grill them without them being really nasty? all the bacon grease would seep in during grilling and make it a soggy mess, I would think.

    I tried to make them at home, but I couldn't get it right.
    I ran out of monosodium poisonate.
    It just doesn't taste the same without it.

    good one,

    But in all seriousness, I cant get anything right at home, from potato to fryer to plate, except for fried hash browns. I just run potatoes through a cheese grater, pack them in patties, and fry them up.. so crispy and good.

    When I try cutting fries/chips,etc. always fails.

    Bacon wrapped bacon is the best.

    I love tater tots!

    In a pinch they make a pretty decent hash brown substitute at breakfast.

    It is true that tater tots exist at various points in time and space.

    They're hash browns with a bit of seasoning and some corn flour to help them stick together. Nothing too bad.

    A little salt, pepper, and spicy ketchup, and you're on your way.
