Ingredients to make Homemade Cheesy Tater Tots

  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped onions
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • oil for frying

How to make Homemade Cheesy Tater Tots

  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook until parboiled.
  2. Drain well and allow to cool, at least to the point you can handle them.
  3. Finely shred potatoes on a fine box grater.
  4. Put the potatoes into a kitchen towel and squeeze out the excess liquid. Transfer the potatoes into a bowl.
  5. Add flour, onion and oregano; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix gently. The mixture should be workable but dry.
  6. Form potatoes into tots.
  7. Heat oil in a pan.
  8. Add tots to the pan, 4 or 5 at a time, and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  9. Next place tots in an oven proof dish or pan. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese and place it in the oven for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  10. Once cheese has melted, remove from the oven, drizzle with ketchup, and serve right away.

My Tip:

1. You can add in your desired seasonings, form them into tots, and throw them into some hot oil to let these babies get amazingly crisp and golden brown. 2. If you don’t manage to eat these all in a single serving, you can freeze them for next time! 3. To Freeze: Transfer cooled tater tots to an airtight container. Freeze up to 1 month. To bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees F and bake until heated through, about 15-17 minutes.
