“The better for you tater tot! These tasty sweet potato tater tots are packed with nutrients!”
I recently bought a package of frozen sweet potato tater tots and wasn’t impressed with the flavor. I was hoping it would taste like a sweet potato, but it tasted very artificial. Even my toddler only ate one or two. That’s kind of a world record.
Since I have sweet potatoes on hand all the time, I tried making my own. This orange veggie is one of my oldest’s first foods and he still loves it to this day.
