What? You don’t think that pressing tots is any big deal?
Quite frankly… I don’t know that I’ll heat up the oven to bake traditional tots again.
Ingredients for Pressed Potato Tots:
12-16 Frozen Potato Tots
dips and/or toppings of your choice
Serves 1-2. Watch the How to Make Pressed Potato Tots Video for added instruction, entertainment and snark.
Directions for Pressed Potato Tots:
1) Preheat panini press or waffle iron to highest setting.
2) Arrange Potato Tots on grill with space around each one for pressing.
3) Press and cook for 7 minutes or until golden and crisp.
4) Remove from grill, season with salt and enjoy with dips or toppings of your choice.
Just a word of caution: Pressed Potato Tots are golden brown and completely irresistible.
