Tired of frozen tater tots? Check out this recipe for homemade tater tots. They’re better than the frozen ones and so easy to make.
- 1 kg potatoes
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- vegetable oil
- chopped fresh parsley leaves (optional)
Serves 3-4 people, I made 25 tater tots out of it.
Garlic powder, onion powder, dill … these are all optional. You can use something else instead of these. I didn’t use onion powder and dried dill but I put dried basil in it and it was also very good.
1.) Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover them with cold water. When the water boils, cook potatoes for about 6-7 minutes. Drain them well and wait until they’re cool.
2.) Take a grater and finely shred potatoes.
3.) Mix flour, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, dill and pepper in a large bowl. Then season it with salt, to taste.
4.) Put potatoes in the same bowl and mix it. You can do it using a hand or a spoon. Then form potatoes into tots or whatever shape you want them to. You can do small balls or just like I did.
5.) Heat vegetable oil over medium heat and add tots. Cook until they’re golden and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. Put a paper towel on a plate so it will absorb extra oil.
6.) It is best if you serve immediately. You can add chopped fresh parsley leaves but it’s not necessary.
