Expert Tips

  • Prefer crispy tots? Add 5 minutes to initial bake time for crispier totchos.
  • We used hamburger pickle chips in this recipe, but feel free to use spicy pickles if you want to add a little kick.
  • Place the mayo, ketchup and mustard in resealable food-storage plastic bags, and cut off the corner of each for easy drizzling.
