A flavorful twist on the classic tot recipe!
Using the fine side of a box grater grate all of the potatoes. Drain the grated potatoes as best you can. I wrapped mine in a towel and squeezed out all the liquid I could. Toss them in a bowl with the flour and goat cheese and mix until well combined. Wrap the mixture in plastic wrap until it makes two long tubes of potato mixture about 1 foot long and 1 inch in diameter. Stick the tubes in the freezer for about 30 minutes until slightly firm.
Using a sharp knife slice the tubes of potato mixture into nuggets about 1/2 inch thick. Leave the nuggets on the plastic wrap to make it easier to pull them off when putting them in the oil.
Heat the oil in a heavy-bottom saucepan over low heat until bubbles start to form when you stick a wooden spoon in. Drop 10-12 tater tots into the oil and fry for about 3-5 minutes until golden brown and crisp. When done, remove toe tots to a paper towel-covered plate to drain. Season immediately with salt. Work in batches until all of the tater tots are done.
Latkes, simply put, are potato pancakes. And though they traditionally aren’t much more than a glorified hash brown, there is a technique to frying them. I’ve had any number of latkes over the years and it took a lot of trial and error to get the “fry” just right. Here now, I share with you my method for frying latkes.
