Potato preference? Tots are good with any sauce or dressing thick enough to not permeate the crevices, for example cheese food. If I have as gorgeous med rare steak that's extruding juices I want crispy shoestring fries. Right now I'm in a British pub food phase so I want shepherd pie all the time.

tater tots, or potato croquettes as they are called here are the most dissapointing version of a croquette.

You bite into them expecting a nice ragout of meat and gravy, instead you get piping hot potato mash....

Potatoes:
-fries, belgian style
-oven fried wedges
-new potatoes with dill and butter.

Croquettes:
-beef croquette
-"bitterbal"(dutch style, smaller with thicker gravy)
-nasi/bamibal(croquette filled with indonesian noodles or rice).

Ah, so by that rationale, if a pig had a better personality, he would cease to be a filthy animal. Is that true?

I would never insult a croquette by calling a Tater Tot one.

:(

I took my kids to Burger King for a surprise breakfast on a day when they had no school. My elementary school ages spuds said they prefer the McD's unholy 'singular fried potato hash slab' to the King's glorious crowns. I don't know what to do but I think I am going to stop putting money into their college funds.

TACOS!!! If anyone ever makes it to San Diego, go to La Cuatro Milpas in Barrio Logan. Its hands down the best, most authentic taco you will get without going to Mexico
My San Diegan daughter and son-in-law are quite upset you put this on the internet. Apparently, this is a closely guarded local secret...

We'd have to be talkin' 'bout one charmin' motherf***in' pig. I mean he'd have to be ten times more charmin' than that Arnold on Green Acres, you know what I'm sayin'?

Ya gotta love Arnold. He did have personality.

My wife and I tried out a fairly new bar/restaurant near us for lunch today. We tried an appetizer of tots with sloppy joe mix and shredded cheddar on top. Yum.
So, not only was it not chili cheese fries, it wasn't chili or fries. Was it even cheese?

I still vote for fried tots & biscuits, smothered in gravy for breakfast. I used to com in to work at Ford early enough to have that with coffee before starting my shift.

Closely guarded? Not quite. Every day the line goes down the street. And its been featured in tons of magazines and websites (buzzfeed, thrillist, etc.). So while its not Rubios, its not a speakeasy either. But I can appreciate the concern from your kids :D

Especially at 2am after closing down the club. That was required eating when I was stationed there.
class at 0530, it was required breakfast

and the one on Rosecrans in Point Loma was walking distance from the barracks on NTC and ASW

Poutine is not made with tots. Chili cheese fries are not made with tots. I hope you didn't need anything out of this case, because it is closed.

Totchos are amazing. Tots are good. Other potato products are also good.

Word of note, if you are baking the frozen tots you can make them even crispier if you mist them with cooking oil or anti stick spray before putting in the oven.

And poutine, chili cheese etc are not a type of fry, that's a fry with something added ontop of it.

Then you have regular, homemade, fresh cut, frozen...not exactly specific types of fries either. What's next, McDonalds, Burger King, Red Robin all being individual types of fries?

:confused:
