  • 1 lb of Potatoes (I used just 1 potato)

  • 2 tsp of Flour

  • 1 tsp of Granulated Garlic

  • 1 tsp of Dried Parsley

  • Salt and Pepper

  • Frying Oil of your choice 


  1. Peel your potatoes place them in a pot, cover them with water, bring to a boil and then simmer the potatoes for about 10 minutes or until you can easily stick a fork through the center.

  2. After 10 minutes drain the water from the potatoes and allow them to cool a bit.

  3.  Shred the potatoes using the largest size on a box grater.

  4. Once you have grated the potatoes mix in the flour, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper until well combined.

  5. Form your tots in water shape you'd like.

  6. Begin heating up a skillet half way up with your oil and allow it to get hot.

  7. In batches (don't overcrowd the pan) , fry your potatoes for a few minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy; drain on a paper towel lined plate!
