Is it called a "casserole" or "hot dish?" Regardless it is delicious. The annual TOT FEST event was sparked after Walking Corpse Syndrome frontman, Leif, decided he had a late night craving for tater tot casserole. He reached out to social media to find anyone who had a tried and true way of creating the perfect dish. We assume he passed out shortly after his post. When he woke up, not only did he have a plethora of responses to how to make the perfect tater tot casserole. But, he also had unknowingly inspired a giant local music festival.
