I wanted to experiment with a healthy tater tot recipe. This isn’t my personal favorite but I also am not a huge tater tot fan. What I am excited to do is add to this basic recipe and make pizza flavored ones, cheese (or nutritional yeast) and bacon, and a spicy version.
Basic Gluten Free Sweet Potato Tater Tots
- 3 sweet potatoes peeled and grated
- 2 eggs beaten
- 2 tsp unrefined sea salt
- 1 cup or more corn meal for polenta
- 1/2-1 cup brown rice flour
- Preheat oven to 375. Peel and grate sweet potatoes, wrap in a cheese cloth or towel and wring out extra potato juice and put into a large bowl. Add eggs and brown rice flour and salt. Combine and form into your desired shape. In a separate bowl combine polenta with about a tsp or so more salt and roll the tots in the polenta and place on a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes. These will be very neutral in flavor. My 3 year old loved them, but I will be adding different herbs and spices to future recipes and will post those changes as they happen. I do think adding uncured bacon would be delicious.
