Tater Tots

Small spheres of grated potato that are deep fried until their surface is crisp, Tater Tots were created by Ore-Ida, which also trademarked the name. But like Kleenex and Band-Aid brands, the term tater tot has become generic, meaning any little fried potato ball. They are a familiar side dish in taverns and cafes and a prominent ingredient in casseroles, where they can be included with all the other ingredients or marshaled in formation on top.
