Ranch Flavored Tater Tots:

Directions

  1. Gather your ingredients.
  2. For the sauce: Combine sauce ingredients in small bowl.
  3. For the burgers: Heat a large cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.
  4. Peel onions and use a mandoline or large slicing blade of a box grater to shave the onions as thin as possible.
  5. Place beef in a bowl, season with salt and pepper and score to separate into 4 portions. Roll beef into balls.
  6. Drizzle oil in pan or over balls and place the meat into pan with 3 inches separating each portion. Top each ball with 1/4 of the onions and press meat into flat patties, bonding onions into meat. Cook beef 3 to 4 minutes, flip, cook and press 2 minutes. Add cheese, 2 slices per burger, and cook 2 minutes more, 7 to 8 minutes total between both sides. Put on patty bun bottoms.
  7. Serve with sauce, pickles, lettuce and patty bun tops with Ranch Flavored Tater Tots alongside.

Ranch Flavored Tater Tots:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Whisk up spices in a bowl. Store in the refrigerator in airtight plastic container.
  3. Bake tots to very crisp, 25 minutes. Top with ranch seasoning to your taste. Makes 3/4 cup seasoning and 6 portions of tots.

Cook’s Note

Store powdered buttermilk (available on baking aisle) in fridge after opening. This same homemade ranch seasoning blend can be used on hot popcorn and of course mixed into a dip with sour cream, or a dressing with sour cream, a splash of buttermilk or cream and lemon juice.
