    Great for leftovers! Before frying, place your sheet of tots in the freezer for ten minutes, sooo crispy...yum!

    These were tasty and a great way to use leftover mashed potatoes as suggested. However, they do not have the same texture as regular tater tots. Next time I think I'll try brushing with olive oil & baking, rather than frying, as I don't really enjoy frying or the mess it makes.
