Are sweet potato tots bad for you?
Don’t let the word “fried” scare you into believing they have been made in an unhealthy way. Coconut oil is good fat and is ideal for cooking foods at higher heat. Plus, sweet tater tots have beneficial nutrients, including vitamin C, fiber, beta-carotene, magnesium, copper, and niacin.
Why don’t my sweet potato fries go crispy?
The secret to crispy (instead of soggy) sweet potato fries is to spread them out in an even layer with enough room so that they don’t touch. This is especially important if you’re making a big batch of fries. If they’re all crammed onto one pan, they’ll steam instead of bake, and you’ll end up with soggy fries.
Tater tots are grated potatoes formed into small cylinders and deep-fried, often served as a side dish.
The name “tater tot” is a registered trademark of the American frozen food company Ore-Ida, but is often used as a generic term. “Tater” is short for potato.

Once cool to the touch, peel then grate the potatoes into a large bowl.

Flour a work surface then form the potato mixture into a log shape.
