Ingredients

To make a portion of mouthwatering Tater Tots, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 300g (10.5 oz) of russet potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Directions

  1. Start by squeezing out any excess moisture from the grated potatoes using a clean kitchen towel. This will ensure that our Tater Tots turn out crispy and golden.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the grated potatoes, chopped onion, all-purpose flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix everything together until well combined.
  3. Take a small handful of the potato mixture and shape it into a cylindrical tot shape using your hands. Repeat this process until all the mixture is used.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a deep pan or skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the Tater Tots into the pan, ensuring they are not overcrowded. Cook them for about 3-4 minutes per side until they turn golden brown and crispy.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked Tater Tots onto a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil. Repeat the frying process with the remaining Tater Tots.
  6. Serve the Tater Tots hot and enjoy their irresistible crunchiness. They can be served plain or with your favorite dipping sauce. Ketchup, ranch, or a spicy aioli are all excellent choices!

Notes/tips

  • For an extra burst of flavor, you can add shredded cheese, chopped bacon, or finely diced jalapeños to the potato mixture before shaping the Tater Tots.
  • If you prefer a healthier alternative, you can bake the Tater Tots in a preheated oven at 220°C (425°F) for about 20-25 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
  • Leftover Tater Tots can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat them in the oven or toaster oven to restore their crispiness.
