Tater Tots

READY IN: 40mins




  • Peel the potatoes and place in a large pot of cold water. Bring to a boil, and cook potatoes for 6 minutes. Immediately drain potatoes and allow to cool.
  • Using a box grater, shred all potatoes into a large bowl. Use a kitchen town or cheese cloth to squeeze any excess moisture out of the potatoes. NOTE: russet potatotes shouldn't need this since they're relatively dry.
  • Beat egg separately and add to the potatoes. Add remaining ingredients (except for the oil) to the bowl and blend thoroughly.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to form the mixture into roughly a ball shape. Prep them on a plate to have them ready to cook. Carefully place the tots in oil heated to 350-375 degrees, making sure not to crowd the cooking vessel. Cook for about 4 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Place newly-cooked tots on a paper towel; using a baking sheet with a paper towel is a good way to do this. Sprinkle with salt while still hot. Eat as-is or serve with ketchup or other dipping sauce.
