Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Squashed Tot Tacos

Unlike canned fruit cocktail and bologna sandwiches on Wonder Bread, my love for Tater Tots has never faded. So, you can imagine my excitement when I squashed, fried, and inserted them in my egg tacos not long ago only to discover that tots weren’t just for dinner anymore. Can’t wait to spread the joy of tots this Christmas morning! 

Bake tots as directed on the package, but shorten the cooking time by about five minutes. You can even bake them off the night before. Five minutes before you start cooking your eggs, add a bit of oil to a hot skillet, drop in your cooked tots, then squash them into a pancake with a spatula. When they’re good and crispy, flip, and do the same on the other side. Salt generously and insert into them your taco or cheesy burrito. 

Happy Merry!
