Turbo’s Tasty Tater Tots

Difficulty Level:



  • 3-4 medium russet potatoes
  • Healthy cooking oil of choice
  • Sea Salt


  • First, scrub and bake your potatoes 
  • Allow the potatoes to cool
  • Peel the potatoes
  • Chop the peeled and cooled potatoes and throw them in a food processor to shred finely. 
  • Next, heat some oil in a skillet (medium heat).  You  just need enough oil to barely cover the bottom of the skillet.  You don’t want greasy tots. 
  • Use a small cookie scoop and pack in the shredded potatoes to make a nice firm ball.  (If you don’t really pack it in, the potatoes will just fall apart when you place the ball in the skillet.) 
  • Gently set the ball into the skillet.  Allow it to cook thoroughly on one side before carefully turning it over.  Press the ball down slightly when you turn it. 
  • Each side takes about 3-4 minutes to cook.
  • Remove tater tots once they look nice and crispy and golden brown.  Sprinkle with desired amount of sea salt.
