Banh Mi Tater Tots

Banh Mi Tots

GUYS! I finished writing the tater tot cookbook this week! I am so excited! It came out great and I absolutely can’t wait for you all to read it! You will have to wait a while though, so here are some tots to hold you over. This amazing recipe didn’t even make it into the book, that’s how good this book is!

Mix a couple ingredients in with some finely chopped boneless pork ribs. Let this marinate for a couple hours.

Then cook it on medium high heat to brown and cook through. About 15 minutes.

Cook the tots, then start topping them with all the good stuff.

Some sriracha mayo and a fried egg finish it off.  I made that sign last week at Basin Harbor Club and then had to immediately make something with a fried egg so I could put the sign in the background.

Then just grab a fork and dig in. Soo good.

I definitely ate this whole plate myself and it was gone about 2 minutes after the last picture was taken.

Stay tuned for more tot updates!

  1. Congrats on finishing the book! I can’t wait to get my copy. These tots look unreal. Is there something I could sub in for the meat to make it taste just as delicious?

    1. I hate to be that guy that just suggests tofu every time, but that’s what you would expect on a vegetarian banh mi right? You could also fry up some chopped mushrooms.

  2. Yea. I wish you invited me over for this one. It looks amazing.
    Also, I enjoyed the new ingredient list pics. Much more easy to read than in ingredient pics past.
