Honestly The Best Tots I Ever Had!
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 1 hour 40 minutes
Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes


4 large golden potatoes, peeled
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 egg
vegetable oil for frying

Cooking Tools

Box grater
Mixing bowl
Large pot
Medium deep frying pan
Sheet pan
Small ice cream scoop 


In a large pot filled with enough water to cover potatoes. Place potatoes in the pot and bring to a boil. Allow potatoes to boil for  minutes and turn off heat and allow potatoes to sit in the hot water for 1 hour.  Remove potatoes from water, dry off excess moisture.  Grate potatoes on a box grater. Cook’s Note: The potatoes will not be fully cooked, which allows for better grating. Place shredded potatoes in a mixing bowl, add; soy sauce, egg, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and mix well. Using a ice scream scoop, create uniformed balls.  Preheat oil in a frying pan to 350 Degrees F.  Place 4-5 balls at a time in the hot oil and fry for 3-4 minutes, drain onto a paper towel lined plate, just to drain off excess oil.  Fry in batches and serve hot.
