I think I’ve given up on trying to make amazing potato tots at home. I’ve tried a few different methods, and with a lot of effort and mess you can make a mediocre batch, but they’re just not worth all the work, when you can just tear open a bag of frozen tots. However, as far as I know, they don’t sell frozen Crispy Potato Pancake Poppers, which are amazing, and were “invented” during one of these failed tot attempts.Besides grating some potatoes and mixing a few ingredients in a bowl, there’s not much work involved in creating these crispy, crusty beauties. Plus, we’re cooking them in the oven, so not only are they pretty easy, there’s very little mess. Beyond how simple, delicious, and texturally exciting these are, they’re also very versatile.As you can see in the video, they’re great simply dunked in your favorite potato-friendly dip and make a perfect base for all sorts of one-bite snacks. These also shine as a side dish next to anything that works with fries or tots and would make a fantastic change-of-pace alternative to your usual breakfast potato. But, no matter how you enjoy these, I really do hope you give them a try soon. Enjoy!
