Tater Tots are a crispy delicious snack made from grated cheese and potatoes seasoned with herbs and spices. They are generally shaped as small bite sized cylinders.

Tater tots made of potato are often sold as frozen food in many supermarkets and are also served in various fast food restaurants.

I have slightly modified the recipe by adding spring onions and shredded cheese. You can skip the cheese for a vegan version.

You can also play around with more ingredients like onions, jalapeños, chilies, coriander etc. & seasonings like oregano as per your taste.

They can be made either by frying or by baking. I generally prefer the baked version as it is healthier due to less use of oil, without any compromise on the taste or texture.

These tater tots can be enjoyed with any dipping sauce like Sweet Chili Sauce, Tomato Ketchup, Ranch Dressing or Dill Sauce.
