Review by Library Journal Reviews

Whalen (Stuffed: The Ultimate Comfort Food Cookbook) plays up novelty and nostalgia in this lighthearted cookbook dedicated entirely to tots: traditionally bite-sized cylinders of fried grated potatoes. The 50 recipes for appetizers, breakfasts, main dishes, and desserts feature tots in myriad forms. Defrosted and mashed, they form the base of a tot crust quiche with bacon and onion. Deep-fried and tossed in cinnamon sugar, they become tot churros ready for dipping in chocolate ganache. It's easiest to make these recipes with store-bought tots, but motivated readers can try recipes for homemade versions. VERDICT This book explores new ways to prepare and serve a popular food and is similar to Daniel Shumski's Will It Waffle? Copyright 2018 Library Journal.
