So as you know I like to try to eat healthy as often as possible. To me eating healthy doesn’t just mean eating lots of fruits and veggies. Eating healthy means cooking at home and knowing what’s in my food. I often cringe when I read labels and realize despite my wide knowledge of health, food, ingredients I often have no idea what the heck some of those unpronounceable additives are!!!
Whenever possible I like to make things from scratch and when hubby said he was craving tater tots I figured why not give home made a try!! These little tater gems of yumminess turned out better then I could have ever hoped for! They are quick, easy , and much healthier then their store bought companions!
3 cups of shredded potatoes (I used simply potatoes but frozen hash brown shreds or hand shredded would be fine)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (any shredded cheese will work)
1/4 finely chopped onion
12 crushed soda crackers
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
These little treats are delicious and come out of the oven nice and crispy! I served them for breakfast with egg muffins in place of hash-brown. I think these would make a perfect side dish for any meal!
I promise they are quick and easy, give them a try!
