There are many things that take us far from home, love, family, locum doctor jobs, you name it, it gets us a one way plane ticket away from our favourite foods. In these days of globalization, you can generally get your hands on an array of international foods, but there are favourites that I have eaten in foreign countries that have proven particularly difficult to get my hands on. I will now admit that I dream of tater tots. If you have never been to the United States, you will have no idea what I am talking about and suggest that I simply look in the frozen food section of my local asda.
It is not so. A tater tot is not a little mashed potato football. It is close to the triangular hashbrowns that you get, they are the size of the tip of your ring finger and made up of little morsels of potato. The pub on the corner deep fried them and served them in a little basket with a lager that came in only one size. After extensive experimentation, I have come up with the following recipe to get something equally delicious that can be made at home. Serve with hot dogs or burgers.
- 2 baking potatoes peeled and boiled until cooked but not mushy
- 2 tablespoons of flour
- 1 onion minced
- salt and pepper
There are several variations on this recipe and partially you will have to make your decision based on what type of frying devise you have. Many recipes suggest using raw potato, I would only recommend doing this if you will be using a temperature controlled deep fryer, otherwise pre cook the potatoes either by baking for 20 minutes or boiling in their skins. Chop them finely by hand, form into balls and them shallow fry.
