I guess my brother and I have been feeling nostalgic
lately because it seems all my posts are foods from my childhood. Homemade
always beats store bought and tater tots are no exception.
I remember being
allowed to be home alone when I was about 12 or 13 years-old while my brother
was 5 or 6 and we be allowed to bake frozen tater tots or curly fries for our
lunch; let me say it was a BIG DEAL. I felt very grown up preheating the oven
to 375, then delicately spreading the fries evenly over a pan. I had it down to
a science because if a curly fry or a tater tot god forbid touched another it
would ruin the whole batch and the crispness would be sacrificed.
So as you can see I
take my tater tots and curly fries very seriously and I don't play games. I can’t
take full credit for this recipe, it was a joint effort by my brother and me and
honestly it would not be the same without him. Part of the childhood nostalgia
was eating our tater tots together with loads
And that’s exactly what we did after we cooked our homemade
version, except we didn’t use quite as much ketchup.
3 medium potatoes finely shredded
Salt and pepper
1 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp Italian season
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tbs of grated mixed cheese
Oil for shallow pan frying
Mix all ingredients together with hands, mixture should be on the wet
side. Make balls shaped like tater tots, if it is too wet add a little gluten
free flour mix.
Lightly pan fry, DO NOT crowd the pan. Brown 6 sides to get optimal
crispiness and to resemble tater tot shapes!
