Happy Hour, Munchies

Pizza Tots

I’ve got some cheesy pizza tots for your lockdown due to COVID-19 😋!

Comfort food is a necessity in times of turmoil and Jackie’s Eats & Treats is here for you during this pandemic and self isolation, just check out my Munchies page.

Before you self-isolated, I’m hoping tots made their way into your freeze and that you also have cheese, pepperoni and tomato sauce on hand 👍. Now grab a mixing bowl and let’s get moving on some tasty treats! I hope you enjoy and cheers 🍻!

Some Cooking Secrets:

  • Tot Secret – These cheesy pizza tots can be made with cauliflower tots and you would never know the difference because they’re smothered with cheese goodness and tomato sauce.
  • Muffin Tin Secret – I used a mini muffin tin and while they were delicious, the size was a challenge for packing in all that cheesy goodness; therefore, I might suggest a standard muffin tin if you want a more substantial muffin 👍.
  • Cheesy Secret – These tots include mozzarella and pub cheese, which creates the deliciousness. My pub cheese of choice is Président® Garlic & Herbs and this spread delivers some yummy flavor in this recipe. If you don’t have pub cheese on hand, no worries because you’ll still have cheesy goodness without!
  • Tomato Sauce Secret – You can certainly use a store bought tomato sauce, but if you’re looking to create a delicious and easy sauce at home, check out my recipe in my Beef Braciole post.
