Try sprinkling chopped scallions on top when it’s hot out of the oven.
This dish is fairly rich, so serving it with a side salad is never a bad idea.
Leftovers and storage
Leftovers will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the fridge.
Keep in mind that the tater tots will soften up, so you may want to reheat in the oven vs. the microwave to crisp them up. You could even use an air fryer.
Freeze leftovers for up to 3 months, and simply thaw overnight in the fridge and then reheat.
Enjoy and happy cooking!
