Tater tots are great breakfast fare but in this day and age breakfast is now becoming an all day meal. Many restaurants have caught up and are now offering all day breakfast. Roasted potatoes are a great way to experiment with different flavors and textures. You can go Italian with the spices or Greek, you can keep the texture soft or you can go hard. Every different way to bake or broil them will keep the texture different. If you roast them in a roasting pan then you will quickly realize that the potatoes will be crunchy of the outside and soft in the middle. If you cook them Greek style then the potato will remain soft throughout. If you have a recipe that calls for roasting them like this one then you will quickly discover that the outside of the potato will be firm and crusty. This is caused by the heat hardening the outside while still keeping the inside fairly soft. This might not be the way your diners like the finished product so go with the Greek style and add some liquid to your pan and make sure you monitor as it cooks and that the taters don’t get dry.
Recipes like this one from Ella allow for your creativity to come to the surface. You can buy premade frozen tater tots or you can make your own. Always make sure to cook extra potatoes when you are making them since they are great as leftovers and can be added to many great recipes like this one.
