I've been thinking about these homemade tater tots since before Thanksgiving. Tonight was the night they hit the oil. A bit of work, slightly different texture then the store bought "competitor" but it saved me a trip the store AND I used up all the smashed taters from Thanksgiving...
I first saw this recipe on Heather Christo's blog. You can follow her recipe or add what you like! I had to add and change to our liking. I started with a large sauteed jalapeno, I used less flour, only 1 egg and added 1 teaspoon garlic powder. they are a little messy to make (I included the hand in glove photo) to show you. But please, give them a try next time you run out of tots.
