Tater Tot Burger with Sriracha Sour Cream

 

Tater Tot Burgers with Sriracha Sour Cream

If I have a guilty-pleasure-trash-food-first-love-can’t-believe-I’m-admitting-this food, it’s tater tots. I own a deep fryer that has produced more tater tots than all other foods combined. I even created a Tater Tot Cone Holder for use at parties for my Tater Tot Bar with Accompanying Sauces.

We all have Ore-ida, the inventor of tater tots, to thank for the best of all bad foods. And although they make a fabulous version (it is the original after all) I tend to favor the Trader Tots from Trader Joe’s. Either way, turning them into The Best Veggie Patty Of All Times is a great idea. No meat eater on the planet will complain about this meatless burger.

 

Tater Tot Burgers2

Hoisin Stout Chicken Legs

Ingredients

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 12 ounces pale ale
  • 2 tbs salt
  • 3 lbs chicken legs
  • 2 tbs sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated with a microplane (or minced)
  • 2/3 cup stout beer
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tbs honey
  • 7.4 ounce jar Hoisin sauce (about ¾ cup)
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp sriracha hot sauce
  • 2 tbs olive oil

Directions

  1. In a large bowl whisk together the buttermilk, 12 ounces pale ale and salt. Add chicken, cover and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes (if all ingredients are cold from the fridge, this is not long enough from any foodborne pathogens to form). Alternately, chicken can also be allowed to soak in the fridge for 3 to 6 hours.
  2. Rinse chicken well with cold water, pat dry.
  3. While the chicken is soaking, make the glaze. Add the sesame oil to a pot over medium high heat, add the garlic, stir. Add the stout, soy sauce, honey, hoisin, smoked paprika and sriracha, bring to a boil, stirring frequently until thickened, about 8 minutes.
  4. Oven method:
  5. Preheat oven to 425.
  6. Heat olive oil in a skillet over high heat until just starting to smoke. Add the chicken (working in batches if necessary) and sear on all sides until browned, transfer to a baking sheet that has been covered with parchment paper or aluminum foil. (note: browning the chicken before the oven will help you to avoid rubbery, chewy, skin on your chicken).
  7. Brush the chicken on all sides with glaze. Cook for thirty minutes, removing chicken from the oven and re-glazing every ten minutes. Cook until internal temperature reaches 165.
  8. Grill method:
  9. Preheat grill to medium high.
  10. Brush the grates with olive oil.
  11. Brush chicken on all sides with glaze.
  12. Place on hot grill, close the lid.
  13. Turn and brush with glaze every 2 minutes until cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.

My mom used to play golf with grand daughter of the guy who invented these! I used this few degree separation to justify any and all of my consumption. And since you basically know me, you can also. Ill allow it ;). I feel like I could eat these sans bun avec runny egg!

I was wondering if you have any solutions to making this without Sriracha sauce? My daughter won’t eat spicy foods and I can’t. I know substituting it for something else won’t have the same effect but the idea intrigued me enough to try it but I don’t know what would work best for our tastes. Is the Sriracha sauce just to make it spicy? Thanks for the great idea!

Reply

Jackie September 10, 2013 um 10:30 am

I would add 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp smoked paprika to the sour cream instead of the Sriracha.

THIS IS SO GOOD! I noticed that the patties are fragile like crab cakes, but once cooked stay together pretty well. and SOOOO GOOOD

These are really good and really easy! I have several veggie burger fails under my belt, so I was skeptical, but these came out fantastic! My kids loved them as well. I’m going to try them with sweet potato tots next to see what happens 🙂

OMG! This sounds amazing! I ran a B&B for 7 years and one thing I did when serving Eggs Benedict, was to add a serving of Southern hash browns on the side with a little more Hollandaise Sauce on the potatoes. One commenter suggested adding a poached egg. Heck you could add the egg, Hollandaise and call it Tater Tot Benedict!!! Seriously, the potato patty recipe really looks amazing!! Looking forward to trying it.
