Lost somewhere along the lines of recipes past, this classic New England dish deserves some love. Traditionally, leftovers from the night before are turned into red flannel hash; cooked corned beef is mixed with shredded beets and aromatics to create a wonderful next day meal. If ever a recipe was intended to turn into a tater tot, this is probably it. We didn’t stray too far into the modern, as beets, potatoes and corned beef are all present and accounted for, and give these tots a lovely purple tinge. We think you’ll dig ’em too. The recipe calls for deep frying, but you can also bake in a 450 degree oven until golden brown, 12-15 minutes.
