Copycat Tater Tot Recipe

Contributed By: Marlene Nord


2 russet potatoes, peeled
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
½ teaspoon onion powder
2 cups peanut oil


Step 1 Place potatoes in a pot; add cold water until potatoes are covered by 1 inch. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer until potatoes are softened, about 10 minutes; drain. Cool until easily handled, 10 to 15 minutes.
Step 2 Shred potatoes into thin strips with a box grater; drain excess water. Place shredded potato into a large mixing bowl. Stir parsley, flour, salt, seasoned pepper, and onion powder into the potatoes until combined. Shape potato mixture into potato nuggets.
Step 3 Heat peanut oil in a deep-fryer or large stockpot to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 4 Place potato nuggets in the fryer, 5 to 10 at a time. Cook until golden brown and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
