Ingredients (8)

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Steps (4)

  1. 1

    In a mixing bowl, lightly mash the tater tots. In a separate bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayo, ranch seasoning powder, egg, flour and cheese until well combined.

  2. 2

    Fold the dressing mixture into the frozen tots (the batter should be firm and hold its shape). Heat a waffle iron until hot and brush with vegetable oil.

  3. 3

    Spoon about 1/3 cup batter into the waffle iron, or enough for it to reach the edge and be about ¾-1-inch thick. Cook until golden brown and crisp, about 5–7 minutes; keep warm and repeat with remaining batter.  

  4. 4

    Serve hot, sprinkled with some extra cheese and sliced scallions, with a bowl of ranch for dipping.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tater Tots I would rather just eat tater tots than bother with making these. I could lightly sprinkle regular tater tots with Hidden Valley Seasoning.
