Homemade Tater Tots
To freeze the Tots, follow the recipe through step 3. In step 4, remove them from the fryer after 1 1/2 minutes and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Transfer to a sheet tray or large plate in a single layer and place in freezer for at least 1 hour. Transfer the frozen tots to a zipper-lock freezer bag and store for up to 3 months.
Be careful not to overprocess potatoes or they will become sticky and gummy. If a few large chunks of potatoes remain, break them up with your fingers in the bowl.
