Sweet Potater-tots


MMmmmmmm…. Sweet potatoes!  I love ’em in any form, but this recipe was a new one for me.  Based upon this post at Fab Frugal Food, it is not only delicious, but also easy to make and freezer-friendly! 
I started out with 4 potatoes.  
 I sliced them up so they would fit into the food processor, but I didn’t peel them.  It is too much work and I kinda like the skins.  
Slowly, they were jammed into the food processor to be shredded.
FYI, I doubled the recipe right off the top.  It made for a LOT of shredded potatoes.  
Then, I baked the shreds in the oven to dry them out a bit.
While they baked, I gathered together some spices.  I also found some cornstarch and flour to help bind the lil’ tots together.  
When the shreds were a little drier, I threw them into a (much bigger!) bowl with the seasonings.  
John helped out by shaping the potato-spice mixture into little golf-ball sized tots.  We froze some just like that, and the rest we fried in coconut oil.  
Wow, wow, wow… and I am not talking about my lack of photography skills!  These little suckers were deeeeelish.  Bigger than traditional tater tots, and a bit sweet, these hit the spot.  Having a bunch ready to defrost and eat later is a bonus, too!
