Although I don’t eat much fast food, every once in a while I do crave the crispy tater tots from Sonic. And since tater tots are one of my all time favorites when it comes to sides I figured I’d give them a little upgrade. 🙂

Now tots are great by themselves but what if you loaded them up with cheese and meat? My thoughts exactly. What you have now is one great meal! My Fully Loaded Brisket Tots combine everything you would normally get in a BBQ baked potato. The only difference here is the added texture from the perfectly crispy tots.

This recipe is fairly simple. I typically use the Ora-Ida brand, but whatever your preference will work just fine. The homemade cheese sauce is the bridge that brings all the flavors together. And pretty much anything you pair with moist and smoky good brisket is bound to be great.

Because I like to keep things simple, I actually purchase my brisket already prepared from a local BBQ joint. It saves time and when you’re using the brisket as an ingredient versus the main entree, there is really no need to prepare it from scratch. Who has 5-7 hours to spare anyway? Not me.

If you want to whip up a quick recipe that the entire family will enjoy give my Fully Loaded Brisket Tater Tots a shot. The end result will be happy plates (and faces) all around.
