One of my all-time favorite Disney movies is The Lion King. The story, the songs, the animation – I just loved everything about it.

Hakuna Matata Taters - aka Loaded Tater Tots. The perfect companion to a Lion King movie night!

While Bubbles has watched a lot of The Lion Guard, she had never sat down to watch The Lion King with me. So when we received a copy of The Lion King Signature Edition on Blu-ray, I thought it was the perfect time to convince her to join me – especially when I added Timon & Pumba’s Hakuna Matata Taters to the mix.

These loaded tater tots were a delicious addition to our Lion King family movie night. I mean, what’s not to love with cheese, bacon, and tater tots? And I am happy to report that Bubbles ended up loving The Lion King just as much as the Lion Guard, and now she has even more context for where those characters came from.

The next time I make loaded tater tots (also sometimes called loaded totchos) I will probably add a few more “grown up” toppings, like black olives, scallions, maybe even some beans. Feel free to top yours with whatever you have on hand – remember, hakuna matata!
