Homemade Tater Tots
Heather Christo

While I made a big plate of these to eat by themselves in the middle of the day, these would be delicious in the summer with burgers or served with a hot slice of meatloaf on a cozy night! You add some eggs and flour to bind the potatoes and then they are rolled in crispy breadcrumbs before being deep-fried to a golden brown. These were unbelievably good.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups mashed potatoes, chilled
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 3 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • Ketchup, for serving

DIRECTIONS

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes and the beaten eggs. Mix in the flour and season with a little salt. Place the panko breadcrumbs in a bowl and drop the potato-egg mixture by the spoonful into the bowl. Gently press the panko into the soft potato "tots."

Place a sheet of waxed paper on a baking sheet. Transfer the tater tots to the baking sheet. Heat the vegetable oil in a small pot to 350-375 degrees. Gently drop the tater tots into the hot oil and fry for about 1-2 minutes until they are hot and golden.

Remove the tater tots from the hot oil with a strainer and gently place on a paper towel to drain. Season lightly with salt. Serve hot with ketchup and enjoy!
