Loaded baked potato tater tots recipe

Yields about 30

Ingredients:

  • Canola oil
  • 1-1/2 pounds russet potatoes, baked
  • 1/2 egg
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup sour cream, plus more for serving
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. Heat about 2 inches of canola oil in a large deep pot or deep fryer to about 375 degrees F.
  2. Peel the skin off the warm potatoes. Grate the peeled potatoes into a bowl.
  3. Add the egg, flour, cheese, green onions, sour cream and salt to the potatoes, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix.
  4. Form into tater tot shapes. Place on a baking sheet and chill in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  5. Working in batches, fry about 6 at a time, until golden brown and hot throughout. Drain on paper towels.
  6. Serve immediately with sour cream and chopped green onion.
