Tater tots haven't always been such a popular food item. In fact, they were originally nothing more than leftovers!

Ore-Ida founders F. Nephi Grigg and Golden Grigg invented the tater tot in 1953 when they found themselves with leftover slivers of potatoes. Not wanting to waste perfectly good potato scraps, they did what any innovative chef would do: they took those leftover slivers, chopped them up a bit, added some flour and seasonings, and shaped them into their familiar cylindrical shape that we all know and love today. There are many delicious slow cooker potato recipes that incorporate tater tots.

When they first hit the shelves in 1956, they were very inexpensive. However, sales were bleak and it was not until the price was raised that people really started buying them (go figure!)

Ore-Ida certainly had a winning recipe when they invented the tater tot, but it was one employee in particular that you can thank for its clever name – Clora Lay Orton. She submitted the name during a company-wide contest among employees to help brainstorm a name for this new tasty treat. We don't know for sure how Orton came up with the name, but we can take a wild guess: "tater" is an abbreviation of "potato," and "tots" likely references one of two things: their small size, or the fact they are often fed to children. Check out some easy slow cooker potato recipes - some even use the tots!

My grandma used to make something similar to this when I was growing up. I would always ask her to make it for me when I came over! It's so tasty.
