Please forgive this absolutely awful (and corny) name that I have given this dish…it is no reflection on it’s amazingness. My reasoning behind this lunchroom/cafeteria name is due to the fact that while I was making these, I was just kind of throwing ingredients together not really thinking about what I was making...
I can’t call these croquettes because to me croquettes are usually loaded with cheese and bechamel and this isn’t. I can’t call them tater tots because they don’t have that tater-like, grainy potato quality. And I can’t call them gnocchi because they’re deep fried, and shaped like a ball. But in a way, these Tater Bites, are really a combination of all three of the aforementioned dishes.
Let’s be honest, pretty much everyone likes fried potatoes in one form or another….so while concocting this dish, I think I zoned out and was just so excited to eat a form of fried potato that I didn’t even think of what the dish really was.
In any event, these came out delicious and paired perfectly with my Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce! So try my Tater Bites or leave me some suggestions on how to better name these delectable little treats!
