Considered to be in the realm of fine dining, duck confit tempts with its deep, unctuous flavor. Tater tots, on the other hand, are unquestionably casual and redeeming to most any lover of potatoes.
ThisWeek staffers answer the question: How does duck confit on tater tots sound?
Dennis Laycock: Not bad, but can I just have a burger instead?
Scott Hummel: You had me at duck and then lost me at tater tots.
Andrew King: I'm actually kind of surprised that isn't a food-truck menu item already. Or perhaps on an upscale gastropub late-night menu.
Sarah Sole: It sounds yucky.
Neil Thompson: Unusual? I don't think I've ever seen a "fancy" dish like duck confit with something I would consider junk food.
Abby Amrbruster: As delicious as they sound, I'll have to pass; vegetarian here. But I'm sure my husband would enjoy them.
Lee Cochran: After looking at the recipe and pictures, it does sound interesting and I wouldn't mind trying it.
Lisa Proctor: Bizarre. I'll take the tater tots with ketchup.
Nate Ellis: Sounds delightful. Hold the tots.
