  • ·
    peanut oil [for frying]
  • 6
    medium russet potatoes, peeled and rough-cut into 1" squares
  • 3 tsp
    cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp
    kosher salt
  • 1 tsp
    white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp

How to Make Handmade Tater Tots

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oil to 325 degrees and par-fry potatoes [in batches] and drain on paper towels. When complete, cool to the point where you can handle comfortably in your hand. Take oil off heat.
  2. Press par-fried potatoes through potato ricer and reserve in mixing bowl.
  3. Sprinkle over cornstarch, kosher salt, sugar and pepper. Carefully "coat" the potato "rice" without creating mashed potatoes.
  4. Place 1/2 to 3/4 cup of the potato mixture on parchment paper and carefully roll into a "log" that is 3/4" in diameter. Chill the "logs" in the refrigerator for no less than an hour.
  5. Reheat oil to 375 degrees.
  6. Cut potato "logs" into 1" to 1 1/4" long sections and fry until golden brown. Season with salt, pepper and dip in ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce or aioli! Enjoy!
