I know………it has been a long time since I have posted anything. I have had a lot going on in the past 2 years with my parents and their illnesses. I hope you have been using my site for your cookbook of favorite recipes anyway.
I wanted to share with you a fun dish for summer. We have an outdoor bar be cue place in town that has a menu item that we fell in love with. My neighbor Amy also makes it and she gave me the paper boats we use to serve them. You can buy them at Sam’s. There are 750 in a box so find a friend and split them with her.
So here is what you do……
1 bag of frozen mini Ore Ida tater tots. Bake or fry according to package directions. I baked.
1 to 2 cups shredded cheddar or monterey Jack cheese, sprinkle over tots after they are done and return to the oven until cheese is melted
Place about 15 tater tots in each paper boat.
Top with chopped moist brisket purchased at your favorite local joint. About a quarter pound per person.
Garnish with sour cream, bar be cue sauce and jalapeños and pickles. Serves about 6.
Add a little half and half or milk to this sour cream with a whisk and put it in one of these squirt bottles that you find at a kitchen store or sometimes at the grocery. Cut the squeeze top off to allow the thicker liquid to come out.
Side dish serving ideas:
Apple cole slaw:
1 bag shredded cabbage or bag cole slaw mix
1 bunch green onions, green part diced
2 granny smith apples, chopped, sprinkled with sprite or lemon juice to keep from turning brown
1/4 cup roasted almonds, slivered or sliced
Purchased Cole Slaw dressing.
Mix together and refrigerate. Keeps well.
