It’s a fact: Americans love tots, and last year consumed 3.5 billion of them. And not just at home. From fast-food joints to high-end restaurants, chefs are joining the tot trend, serving exotically spiced tots or fun mash-ups like Totchos. But now, prepare for TOT-al domination Created by mad-genius food blogger Dan Whalen, Tots elevates the friendly little tater to its place in the culinary spotlight.
This irresistible cookbook with a nubby tot-texture on the cover offers 50 delicious, playful, and surprising recipes for snacks, appetizers, inspired main dishes, and inspired sides, even desserts. Here are party dishes like Buffalo Tots and Tot Poutine next to Comfort classics like Chicken Tot Pie and Tater Tot Pizza.
Every recipe uses frozen commercial tots–but Dan Whalen also shows die-hard tot lovers how to make tots from scratch and then alter their creations with different spices and sauces. It’s TOT-ally awesome.

After writing comfort food recipes on The Food in my Beard for many years, I realized many of the recipes were stuffed. So, I wrote a whole book of stuffed recipes! The recipes range in difficulty, but each is inspirational and will get your creative cooking juices flowing.
