One of the housemates drove too close to Grocery Outlet the other day and returned with a 3lb sack of tater tots. While I might have been satisfied by simply baking the tater tots and dipping them in ketchup and Worcestershire sauce, I recalled this recipe that my ex-girlfriend had once threatened to make. It was a childhood favorite of hers, being one of the few things in the kitchen her mother allowed her to make.

Tater Tot Tempter
  • half a pound of mushrooms, chopped
  • a large onion, chopped finely
  • one package of LightLife ground beef substitute
  • about a pound of tater tots
  • 3-4 Tbs Worchestershire sauce
  1. Saute the mushrooms and onion until the onions are almost done.
  2. Throw in the fake meat and break it up.
  3. Add some black pepper, sage, oregano, or not.
  4. As the onions finish cooking, douse with the Worchestershire sauce.
  5. Spread evenly across the bottom of a 9x13 cassarole dish.
  6. Top with tater tots.
  7. Bake at 400 until tatertots are brown and crispy, about 35-45 minutes.
Serves 4-5 people with ketchup or tonkatsu sauce.
