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! :)

Ingredients

TOTS

1 1/2 lb
russet potatoes, baked
1/2
egg
1/4 c
flour
1 c
sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2
scallions, finely chopped
1/4 c
sour cream
6 slice
bacon, cooked to taste
1/2 tsp
salt

DIP

1/2 c
mayonnaise (the only brand i buy is hellmann's)
2 Tbsp
ketchup
2 Tbsp
horseradish sauce
1/4 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
paprika
1/8 tsp
oregano
1 dash(es)
ground black pepper
1 dash(es)
ground cayenne pepper

Step-By-Step

1For the tots:
Heat about 2 inches of canola oil in a large, deep skillet or deep fryer to about 375 F.
2Peel 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.)
3Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well, but be careful not to over-mix!
4Form 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.
5Working 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.)
6For 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.
