Cheesy Tater Tots

For last weekend’s Thanksgiving dinner, I prepared the mashed potatoes. I went all out and made roasted garlic red skinned mashed potatoes, and they were a huge hit. With a decent amount of leftovers, I decided to make some homemade tater tots for Anna (who is quite the potato fiend). These are so very simple and quite delicious.

Cheesy Tater Tots

You will need:

2 cups leftover mashed potatoes

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 egg

1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs

2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp seasoning salt

Preheat oven to 375 and spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Begin by mixing the cheese into the potatoes. Add egg, breadcrumbs and seasoning and mix thoroughly to combine. Form into tater tot shapes and place on dish. Bake, turning once for 30 mins. They are ready when the tots are crispy and golden. Enjoy!
