Nonstick cooking spray
8 cups thawed frozen Tater Tots (32 ounces)
Flaky sea salt
1/4 cup crème fraîche
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
2 cups baby arugula
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
12 thin slices of prosciutto
Thinly sliced cornichons, for serving
How to Make It
Heat an 8-inch waffle iron; preheat the oven to 200°. Grease the waffle iron with nonstick spray. Spread 2 cups of the tots on it; sprinkle with salt. Close and cook on medium high until nearly crisp, about 5 minutes. Open the waffle iron and fill in any holes in the waffle with more tots, then close and cook until golden and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet; keep warm in the oven. Repeat with the remaining tots.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix the crème fraîche and mustard. In another bowl, toss the arugula with the lemon juice and olive oil. Top each warm waffle with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mustard crème fraîche, 3 slices of prosciutto and 1/2 cup of the dressed arugula. Garnish with cornichons and serve.
