My oldest son just got REALLY in to cars. He points out the cool ones to me on the road (and wants to talk at length about them…) and loves to get under the hood of our cars and look around. This new love has carried over to the television as well. There’s always car racing on and the boys in my family love to gather around and watch the action. I created this Loaded Tater Tots recipe for them to snack on while watching their favorite race car drivers battle it out on the track.If you’ve never made Loaded Tater Tots before, you are totally missing out. They’re basically the potato version of nachos. And they are good. Real good. It’s very rare that I see one of my favorite dishes, patatas bravas, on a restaurant menu. (I don’t know what the literal translation is but I really hope it means brave potatoes). It’s a Spanish tapas dish that is usually made with fried potatoes. Since I’m always looking for ways to make yummy dishes even faster, I decided to create these Loaded Tater Tots with a patatas bravas inspired sauce combined with another favorite bar food, Buffalo wings. Aside from a bag of frozen tater tots, you just need a few other ingredients for the toppings (blue cheese and parsley) and to create the Buffalo aioli. Aiolis are simple, mayo-based sauces that are totally versatile. This one couldn’t be easier to make with just a few spices – paprika and garlic powder (or you can sub a fresh clove) and some prepared Buffalo sauce. The sauce took literally 2 minutes to make. The only other prep work that needs to be done is to chop some parsley. It’s so easy! I mixed up the sauce as the tater tots baked according to the package directions. Since it took almost no time at all, I had plenty of time to sneak outside and check out the Go Kart my father-in-law brought over to work on with my son. As a mechanic, my father-in-law couldn’t be happier to encourage my son’s love of cars. It’s so fun to see 3 generations hunched over something that grandpa welded for them, working away to make it better. Although they created the Go Kart from a kit, it’s still very homemade. From what I hear, it rides a little (a lot!) rough. But that doesn’t stop my husband and father-in-law from making sure they get their turn in it too. It’s not easy on the body to climb in and out of that little seat. They’re body’s always ache a little after these Go Kart days. That’s why I picked up these Advil® Film-Coated tablets. They go to work on tough pain in minutes* with they’re Rapid Release Formula.
When they’ve had their fill of their own “race car” fun, they love to come in, sit down in front of the TV and watch other people do the racing. They can’t wait for the upcoming Ford Ecoboost 400 in Miami on November 20th in particular! While the Advil® Film-Coated tablets are tough on their aches and pains associated with car maintenance and rough riding through the street (actually they usually find an empty parking lot to drive in which is WAY safer), I rely on it for everything else like headaches, cramps, muscle aches and relief from the pains associated with the common cold which is running rampant through our house right now. The last time I made a “pit stop” (Get it. Racing.) at Walmart I grabbed a pack of shop towels from the automotive section. I thought it would make my son smile to have his own stash of towels to wipe his greasy hands on after working on the Go Kart. There is nothing cuter than seeing one of these red towels stuck out of his back pocket. But before I gave them to him, I thought they would make the perfect napkins for a race day snack.
These Loaded Tater Tots with Buffalo Aioli are the perfect race day food. They are flavorful, so easy and perfect to eat with your fingers. By swapping out the standard fried potatoes, I was able to make the recipe super fast!
