One night I was going to make hot dogs and mac & cheese. I realized I was out of bread and buns. I realized I had tator tots so I was just thinking of an idea to make a meal so I just did this. First of all my family thought I was nuts, but they all liked it and ate the whole pan. Now it is a request in my house of 5.
