You never really outgrow Tater Tots. The fried shredded potato balls are french fries’ crispier, fluffier cousins, and they’re hard not to love. So the next time you pass them in the freezer aisle, treat yourself. Grab a bag and turn the crunchy potato snack into some serious party grub.
The January/February issue of Food Network Magazine includes five amazing reimagined dishes featuring Tater Tots. Even Tot haters (yes, they exist) approved all the dishes. You can find them below, along with other genius recipes developed in our kitchen.
Cheesy Bacon-Tater Tot Pie

Turkey and mashed potatoes may be staples you don’t dare mess with, but this year, have some fun in the dessert round. Friends and family will survive without the usual slice of pumpkin, apple or pecan pie, so make something fun and unexpected (which we often think means adding chocolate). Below is our roundup of unconventional pies that deserve the spotlight at your feast.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Pie (pictured above)
As difficult as it may be to believe, not everyone is a pie person. But we’d have a hard time finding anyone who could pass up a freshly baked cookie, especially if it was oatmeal raisin. With a chewy cookie filling baked into a traditional pie crust, this recipe will win everyone over. If you usually prefer an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie to the raisin kind, go ahead and swap in chocolate chips. No one will judge.

Sweet potatoes are brighter, sweeter (obviously) and more fun than your everyday spud. Plus, they’re the only vegetables that make eating marshmallows during dinnertime perfectly acceptable. (If you’ve tried Sunny Anderson’s kid-favorite and adult-approved recipe [pictured above], you get it.) Below are some of our favorite ways to cook the orange-fleshed beauties at this time of year.

In a world where calories didn’t matter and stomachaches didn’t exist, how many doughnuts do you think you could eat (and enjoy) in one sitting? Food Network Magazine’s editor in chief, Maile Carpenter, confidently said six, but specified they had to be plain glazed doughnuts so that she would not get sick of them. Think that’s impressive? The magazine’s executive editor, Rory Evans, raised the bar to 13.
Food Network Magazine wants to know your doughnut max. Answer in the poll below to provide important doughnut research for an upcoming issue.

You don’t have to bake ghoulish cupcakes or serve garlicky anti-vampire snacks to throw a good Halloween bash. Instead of going the spooky route, serve a beautiful dessert dressed in the official holiday colors: orange and black. Food Network Magazine created four new recipes that are classy enough for a cocktail party but sweet enough for any little monsters in your life.
Chocolate Doughnut Holes
A platter full of doughnut holes is much more tempting than a bowl filled with candy. This recipe yields about five dozen chocolate-glazed bites, which is especially great if you’re planning on a full (haunted) house on the 31st.

Spaghetti squash is the original source of veggie noodles. Unlike other vegetables, it doesn’t require you to use a spiralizer to create perfect, twirlable strands — after a quick roasting time, a fork is all that’s needed. Follow Food Network Magazine’s foolproof roasting guide here. Then, create a comforting low-carb dinner featuring the yellow gourd. Find delicious inspiration from the October issue below.

You won’t miss the pasta when your squash strands are dressed up with Alfredo sauce. Shallots, white wine and fresh thyme balance the creaminess of the classically decadent dish.
