Ore-id-a friends, here goes another really fun idea…. 

Check out these really cool

Hash Browns!


All you need are some tater tots, cooking spray and a hot panini press.   

 Ok, now that’s cool, right?!

TIP: If you don’t have a panini press then you can use a waffle iron (just  keep in mind my recipe used a panini press).  Also, the key word to remember is HOT panini press – very important – I used the highest setting. 

 You can serve these alone with ketchup or like I did with an over easy egg on top. 

I hope you’ll give this a try.  They were so fun to make and the kids really thought they were cool.

Go ahead, share it with your friends (I don’t mind, really!)

Tater Tot Hash Browns

Hash browns made from pressing tater tots in a panini press


  • 1 bag Ore-Ida Tater Tots 32oz
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • panini press


  • 1.Get your press nice and HOT (I used highest setting)
  • 3.Spray both sides of the press with oil.
  • 3.Take 8 tater tots and form a square (I did 2 long,3 across and then 2 long). I did two sets on the press
  • 4. Close lid and press down - create a lot of pressure and hold it down for 30 seconds (at least). After 1-2 minutes when tots are firm flip over in opposite direction to create a cross cross pattern.
  • 5. Continue too cook until nice and crispy.
  • 6. Serve warm


*i used frozen tots and a VERY HOT press*
*12-14 Hashbrowns if using whole bag*
