Ranch Brunch

Not your typical Brunch Burrito.

Buttermilk brined fried chicken tenders, tater tots, mozzarella and cheddar with bacon sour cream ranch dip in a big fresh tortilla. There was an orange in the room so it counts as a complete breakfast.

Yes, tater tots. "Tater Tot" is actually a registered trademark of Ore-Ida, the company that invented them in 1953.  The founders had an excess of potato scraps after making fries so rather than sell them as animal feed they added flour and seasoning, then sent the whole thing through an extruder and into the deep fryer and food history was made (in my opinion as I adore tater tots.)  Since it's Saturday when I forego healthy eating and eat like I was raised on the grounds of the State Fair, this really hit the spot

I use Schwan's Crispy Taters  - definitely my favorite brand.

For dry seasoning for the dip.

2 Tablespoons of dried parsley
1 teaspoon of dried dill
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1/2 teaspoon  dried pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Mix and store in an airtight container.  When ready to serve, add 1 Tablespoon of the spices to 1/2 cup sour cream to which two pieces of bacon are finely chopped and added.


  1. I don't know why but the picture made me really really hungry for over stuffed Mannicotti.
