Chile Cheddar Tater Tots
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • a heaping cup of mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar
  • 3 Tbsp mild green chiles
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • flour for dusting- seasoned with a pinch of salt & pepper
  • ranch dressing garnish optional
Instructions
  1. In a bowl mix together the potatoes, egg, cheddar, chiles and breadcrumbs. Scoop out into bite sized balls.
  2. Roll in the seasoned flour and gently press just to flatten a bit. Put onto a plate or lined baking sheet and pop in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Heat up a couple inches of oil over a medium high heat {a grapeseed, coconut or vegetable oil will work great for high heat} in a deep pan.
  4. Using a fry basket if you have, brown up the tots until golden brown. Place onto a paper towel lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
