Willie Nelson Tots

Delicious baked or fried.
Using a deep-fryer is optional, but recommended
At WesBurger, Wes deep-fries his tater tots. If you have the ability to deep-fry the tots, he highly recommends it for maximum crispness. An oven will work fine, as well. Wes prefers using Ore-Ida tots but, any frozen tater tot will work.
