When you’re perusing the frozen foods section, it’s always an obvious move to grab a bag of frozen fries. Yet, how often are you grabbing frozen tater tots? Not nearly enough, is my guess. Tots are one of life’s greatest pleasures, and you should be adding them to the rotation more often. Whether you’re getting creative with loaded tots topped with cheese and other goodies or just crunchin’ them raw, which brand do you reach for? I tried five different frozen tater tot brands and ranked them to answer that very question.
Pro tip: All of these are best made in the air fryer. However, if you’re using an oven with tots on a baking sheet, leave every single one of these products in for at least two or three minutes longer than the directions say. You want them crispy and golden, so make sure they are spread in a single layer.
