Our group is doing a fried haddock dinner on Friday night . There has been a recent debate among the participants in the group to serve traditional crinkle cut Maine French fries with the fried haddock or Tater Tots.
The meal normally consists of Fried haddock, Maine French fries, coleslaw, rolls, butter and dessert (either Ice Cream or blueberry buckle).
I'm asking for your opinions here as Mainers. Tater Tots or French Fries?

Fries. Tater tots and Haddock? That just doesn't even sound right. (If they go for the tater tots though, doesn't McCains still make them up in the County)

I'm not Maine but I vote for the fries. Tater tots are like potato turds (lots of little pieces together to make one glob) and I haven't had them in ages - I didn't even know they were still around.

It's classic fish and chips.

I like Tator Tots but voted for fries. I assume, we know what assuming does, Maine fries are just krinkle fries.

lololol...I'm amazed at how many people have looked at the poll but how few actually voted.

I went w/ the fries. Tator Tots are okay w/ fish sticks but don't do any justice to the haddock.

Recipe for the buckle below, for the Mainer that has never had it.

Nice poll!
