Normally, a tater tot is a side dish made from deep-fried grated potatoes but this New England recipe gives the classic meal an entirely new look. Reinvented in a purple hue, 'Red Flannel Tater Tots' incorporate vegetables and protein-based ingredients.

Mixing a Red Flannel Hash and a tater tot recipe, this satisfying side dish is made with cooked corned beef mixed with shredded beets and chopped potatoes. The beets give this dish its unusual pigment while also providing it with health benefits such as fiber, immune-boosting vitamin C, potassium and B vitamin folate.

This tater tot recipe calls for deep frying, but foodies can also bake the tots for 12-15 minutes if they wish to practice more health conscious cooking.
