LC Leftover Tater Tots Note
Know how sometimes, for whatever godforsaken reason, the kids don’t devour all their tater tots and you end up snitching them cold off their plates rather than throwing them out while cursing yourself? (Oh stop. We’ve been there.) This Parmesan tater tots recipe is a revelation in those moments. Just toss the tots—well, the ones not smothered with ketchup—back in the oven to reheat and then sprinkle with Parmesan as the recipe instructs.

Prepare the tater tots in the oven according to the package instructions.
When the tater tots come out of the oven, place about 1/4 of them in a largish bowl. (Careful! They’re hot!) Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese and gently toss to swirl the tots and cheese in the bowl a few times. Dump the Parmesan tater tots into a serving dish. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and grab some napkins.
Recipe Testers' Reviews
These were great! Tater tots are wonderful on their own, but the addition of cheese put them over the top. This Parmesan tater tots recipe is super easy. Another night I had a few plain tater tots leftover and reheated them in the oven and sprinkled them with cheese, and they were great, too. This one's a slam dunk with kids and adults alike. I used a store brand of tater tots, which was a 2-pound bag.
This Parmesan tater tots recipe is the easiest and fastest recipe I have ever made. This was not just eaten by kids but by adults too. We all loved them. A fun way to eat tater tots. Right away I started thinking what about adding spices next time—garlic, onion, nutmeg, dried herbs perhaps? We DID have some left over, so this morning I reheated them in the oven at about 425ºF for about 7 minutes and added more Parmesan once out of the oven. They were cheesier and perfect (and the leftovers were also good cold).
