Crispy and Flat Carroty Potato Tator Tots and 10 Years in the Making!

Hi everyone. Big news: After 10 years, my daughter ate carrots when she used to gag when I had her try them. Words cannot describe the joy I felt when she chowed them down. That’s all:-)

Crispy and Flat Carroty Potato Tator Tots:

3 medium sized chopped, steamed potatoes
2 chopped, steamed large carrots
2 TBS softened butter
1/2 tsp salt, more to taste

1/2 cup crushed cornflakes,whole wheat bread crumbs,panko or any other kind of crumb
Add the butter and salt.

Mash with a fork or potato masher or whip but VERY briefly so they don’t get gummy!
Roll into one inch balls
Roll the balls in the breadcrumbs and lay on a parchment paper lined baking sheet
Makes about 25-30 balls
Spray the balls with olive oil spray and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 1bout 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Flip over and bake another 5-10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Yum!

  1. I can completely relate to the feeling you get when the kids finally like something they never liked before! It's an amazing accomplishment for both the mom and the child. It's truly amazing when they manage to get over a fear of something you know they will and should love. Awesome Alma! I think this is a milestone!
