Saw an idea for these awhile back and decided to make my own. I made mine a little bigger to use them as a whole meal and it was AWESOME! I made my own version of the dip you can get with those bloomin' onion thingies from Outback or Chili's. Perfection! :)

How To Make loaded tater tots with horseradish dipping sauce

  • 1
    For the tots: Heat about 2 inches of canola oil in a large, deep skillet or deep fryer to about 375 F.
  • 2
    Peel skins off of hot potatoes. Send them through a ricer into a large mixing bowl. (If you don't have a ricer, you can also use a cheese grater.)
  • 3
    Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well, but be careful not to over-mix!
  • 4
    Form potato mixture into tot-like shapes. Place on baking sheet and chill in the freezer for about 10 minutes, or until firmed up enough that they won't fall apart in the fryer.
  • 5
    Working in batches, fry about 6 or so at a time, depending on the size of the tots. Fry until they are golden brown and hot throughout. Drain tots on paper towels. (If you like, you can make them a little bigger to make them into a quick main course meal.)
  • 6
    For the dip: In a small to medium bowl, combine all dip ingredients. Mix well. The dip itself should be a light off pinkish-white color.
