How to Keep Tater Tots Warm

How to Keep Tater Tots Warm

Keeping potatoes, such as tater tots, warm after cooking requires a method that ensures the quality of the food without leaving it soggy or dried out. Wrapping the warm tots in plastic produces mushy potatoes, while leaving them encased in paper towels does little to keep them warm. Keep tater tots as delicious to eat as when they first came out of the fryer by using an oven on low heat.

Things You'll Need

  • Paper towels
  • Bowl
  • Metal cake pan or heavy-duty aluminum foil


    • 1

Lay two paper towels inside a bowl. Place fried tater tots into the bowl, and allow the paper towels to soak up excess oil.

    • 2

Turn the oven to 150 degrees Fahrenheit or the lowest setting on the oven.

    • 3

Spray a metal cake pan with a nonstick cooking spray. Place the tater tots gently into the metal pan. If you do not have a metal cake pan, place the tater tots onto a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Roll up the edges of the aluminum foil to keep the tots from rolling off.

    • 4

Set the metal pan or aluminum foil into the oven on a middle rack. Leave the tater tots inside the oven until ready to eat, but no longer than 30 minutes. Tater tots left to warm for more than 30 minutes might become hard or dried out.
