I saw this on Pinterest (of course.) The easiest way to cook tator tots...on a waffle iron! Who would have thought? Usually tots can take up to 25 min and then some if you want to broil them for crispiness. This method cooks them in under 8 minutes and all sides come out crunchy.
There are many other things that I've seen cooked on a waffle iron, brownies, cake mix and even cinnamon buns. I have yet to try those recipes but eventually will get around to them.
