Description

Yes, you can make homemade tater tots! Made from leftover mashed potatoes with bacon and cheese!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Mashed Potatoes
  • 2 whole Eggs, Beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • ½ cups Shredded Cheese (I Used Colby-Jack)
  • ½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Salt
  • 2 whole Green Onions, Chopped
  • 4 slices Bacon, Cooked And Crumbled
  • 3 cups Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 3 cups Vegetable Oil, For Frying

Preparation

In a large bowl, combine mashed potatoes with remaining ingredients, except panko and vegetable oil. Mix thoroughly.

Add panko to a shallow dish like a pie plate.

Heat vegetable oil in a Dutch oven or heavy sauce pan to about 350ºF.

Using a small cookie scoop or spoon to form potatoes, dropping each scoop into panko. Coat all sides of potato ball and form into a tater tot shape.

Fry about 4 or 5 at a time, turning to brown on all sides about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain.

Serve with ketchup or ranch dressing.

Enjoy!
