Tater Tots are small cylinders of grated potatoes that are deep fried or baked until golden brown. I think it was actually a trademarked name by Ore-Ida Foods, who first made them, but as with words like 'aspirin' it is used generically for the version made by all manufacturers. They are essentially minced up 'chips'. I happen to like them as part of a quick meal at home or at a drive-in restaurant, but they have no place in a supposedly upscale dining room.

Here is an image of tater tots.
