This appetizer recipe is also known as baked tater tots in American cuisine and can also be enjoyed in breakfast as well. This is an easy-to-make potato recipe and is cooked using potato wafers, potatoes, Parmesan cheese, butter and seasonings.
2 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon black pepper
salt as required
water as required
150 gm potato wafers
1 tablespoon red chilli powder
3 tablespoon cubed parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
To prepare this easy appetizer recipe, wash the potatoes in running water and clean them well. Pat them dry with kitchen towel. Next, pierce the potatoes with a fork vigorously so that the potatoes can be baked from inside. Put these potatoes in a baking tray and put it in oven and microwave for 5 minutes on high power (90 per cent).
After 5 minutes, flip over and continue to microwave the for another 4 minutes at the same power. Once done, take out the baking tray and allow the potatoes to cool down. Peel the potatoes in a large bowl and mash them while they are still warm.
Now, add melted butter over the mashed potatoes and mix well until the mixture is smooth and lump free.
Now when the potato mixture is smooth enough to make cutlets, add salt and black pepper powder in the mixture as per your taste along with red chili powder, and make a final potato mixture for the bite size pieces.
Then, take two tablespoons of the potato mixture, roll into a cylinder with the help of your hands and put in a plate. Do the same with rest of the potato mixture. Crush the potato chips into crumbs by using food processor. Take the crumbled chips in a bowl and roll the potato cylinders on them.
Now, pre-heat the oven at 180 degree Celsius and spray the baking pan with vegetable oil. Arrange the prepared tater tots in the baking pan and sprinkle pieces of Parmesan cheese on top of tater tots. Bake them for 15 minutes or until their colour turns to golden brown. Remove from oven immediately and serve hot with your favourite dip.
