Homemade Tater Tots
- 2 pounds russet potatoes, preferably organic
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
- dash of pepper
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder or non-gmo corn starch
- 2 quarts of tallow, lard or coconut oil
Step 1 – Heat oil between low and medium heat. You don’t want the oil to be too hot for frying. Peel and dice the potatoes.
Step 2 – Fry the potatoes until the are lightly brown, but not completely done cooking.
Step 3 – Remove the potatoes from the oil and place them on a paper towel lined plate. Let them cool for a few minutes.
Step 4 – Place cooled potatoes in a food processor. Add sea salt, pepper and starch to potatoes. Pulse 3-4 times. The potatoes should look grated and the salt, pepper and starch should be mixed into the potatoes.
Step 5 – Now its time to mold your tater tots! You can make them round or in a traditional tater tot shape. Place the tots on a cookie sheet. At this time you may freeze your tater tots for future use if you would like.
Place tater tots in a warm oven until ready to serve. Enjoy!
