These Blue Cheese Burger Totchos are a huge hit in my house. I’m a huge totchos fan anyway but when Blue Cheese Burger ingredients are added to the top of ORE-IDA TATER TOTS® for a whole new twist, I’m even happier. And hungrier!
I made these Blue Cheese Burger Totchos over lunchtime so I could have one serving for my lunch. I knew my daughter Katie would want some, too, and since the recipe makes 12 servings I thought she could enjoy some when she got home from school. Katie LOVES blue cheese and TATER TOTS® so I knew she’d want to give these a try. Boy, was I right about that – she loved them! She must have said four times in an hour how much she loved these totchos (I even took a cute video of her going on and on about them).
These Blue Cheese Burger Totchos are easy to make, too. Just take a bag of ORE-IDA TATER TOTS®, spread them out on a sheet pan and pop them in the oven. While they’re getting crispy, brown some ground beef in a skillet then mix in some HEINZ ketchup (I’m dying to try HEINZ Sriracha or Jalapeno Ketchup), then you can use the same pan to crisp up some bacon. The tater tots should be just about done by then so all you’ll have to do is layer your crispy, hot TATER TOTS® on a serving platter then top with the cooked ground beef mixture, a drizzle of blue cheese dressing, blue cheese crumbles, bacon, chives and chopped red onion. All delicious ingredients that will make your totchos taste just like a blue cheese burger!
What I love most about these Blue Cheese Burger Totchos is that they I can make them for a party and even though they fly off the plate, they serve 12 so I can feed a lot of people at once. And if I make them for just my small family we have plenty of leftovers to feed us for a few meals! A serving seems to be about 9-10 tots plus all those good toppings (the small plate above is a good example). I swear that Katie would have these totchos for breakfast if she could (my pickier 11-year-old even liked them).
