Goldfish® Xtra Cheesy Tater Tots

So Yummy

 

Difficulty:  Easy 
Total Time: 35 minutes 

Servings: 20 tots 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons neutral flavored oil, like grape seed or canola
  • 1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into rough 1-inch chunks (about 2 potatoes)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced parsley, optional
  • 1 oz sharp white cheddar cheese, finely grated (about 1/3 cup)
  • ½ cup Goldfish® Xtra Cheesy, processed into a powder
  • Fresh ground black pepper

 

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease with half of the oil.
  2. Add peeled potatoes to a food processor and pulse until chopped into tiny pieces
  3. Wrap the dish towel around the processed potatoes and squeeze well to remove as much liquid as possible, then add to a microwave-safe bowl heat for 1-2 minutes
  4. Sprinkle the salt, onion powder, cornstarch, parsley, cheese, Goldfish® powder, and a few grinds of black pepper into the potatoes and stir to combine
  5. Shape potatoes into cylinders about 3/4-inch wide and 1-inch long. Place shaped tater tots onto an oiled baking sheet.
  6. Drizzle tops of tater tots with remaining oil then bake until golden brown on the bottom, about 10 minutes. Carefully flip each tater tot — using two forks helps to wiggle any tots that are more stuck to the foil than others — then bake until the second side is golden brown, another 10 minutes.
