Bet ya never thought you’d hear “truffle” and “tater tots” in the same sentence, did ya?

Well, I went there. hah

Remember my oven baked parmesan truffle fries? Well, I was having a serious hankering for them lately. I was being lazy did not want to go through the “trouble” of cutting & soaking the potatoes to make them.

{Enter Tater Tots}

Hello genius-ness:

Why did I not think of this sooner?!

Ya’ll, it doesn’t get easier than this! A bag of tater tots (baked extra crisp)… tossed with a drizzle or two of truffle oil, some grated parm, parsley, and salt. VOILA! Quantities aren’t critical (add each ingredient to your liking!).

These are tater tots… classed up a bit! 😉 I mean, who says you can’t mix a little classy with some homey goodness?!

Parmesan Truffle Tater Tots

Yield: 2 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

A classed-up tater tot... mixing fancy with a classic! 😉


2 cups frozen tater tots
2-3 teaspoons truffle oil (or more to taste)
1/4 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dried parsley
pinch of salt


Bake tater tots according to package instructions (NOTE: I typically cook mine longer than the bag says as I like a good crispy tater tot!).

Remove from oven and toss with truffle oil, parmesan, parsley, and salt while still hot. Serve immediately... although I'm sure you've already sampled a few at this point! 😉
