Tips & Tricks For Totchos

  • Preheat your oven: Make sure your oven is preheated to the correct temperature before baking your tater tots. This ensures they cook evenly and become perfectly crispy.
  • Spread tater tots evenly: Arrange your tater tots in a single layer on a baking sheet to ensure they crisp up evenly. Crowding them together can result in soggy tots.
  • Use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat: Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat to prevent the tater tots from sticking and make cleanup a breeze.
  • Season your tots: Before baking, sprinkle your tater tots with your favorite seasonings to add extra flavor. Garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, or chili powder are all great options.
  • Don’t skimp on the cheese: Load up your Totchos with plenty of cheese for maximum gooeyness. Cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend of your favorite cheeses work well.
  • Get creative with toppings: Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to toppings. Experiment with different combinations of meats, veggies, sauces, and garnishes to create your own signature Totchos masterpiece.
