Have fun with this recipe. Think of all the favor combos you could make!
I prefer the extra crunch the corn flakes give this snack treat. Skip it if you like, just follow through step 7.

Serves: 30 pieces
  • 1 pound baking potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon paprika or smoked paprika
  • 3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup corn flakes (cereal), crushed
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  1. Cut the potatoes in half. Place in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for about 10-15 minutes (based on size). * TIP Do not overcook, you're not making mashed potatoes. You will want to grate them so you'll need them still a bit firm.
  2. Remove the potatoes from the water and allow to cool.
  3. Peel the skin off the cooled potatoes; shred with a box grater (large grate).
  4. Preheat the oven to 450ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease a baking sheet.
  5. Combine the potato with the parmesan cheese, salt, garlic, onion, pepper and paprika.
  6. In a small bowl combine the corn flakes and parmesan cheese; set aside. Pour olive oil in a small bowl; set aside.
  7. Using your hands, firmly form 1 heaping tablespoon into a tater tot shape until all tots are formed.
  8. Dip each tater tot into the olive oil, shaking off the excess, and roll in the crushed corn flakes mixture.
  9. Place on the baking sheet. For an even toasting, bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and gently roll each tater over, return to oven and bake 15 more minutes.
