Just thinking out loud but...did you fry them while freshly made or were they a bit frozen??  I was just wondering if they are frozen when put in the hot grease if they would hold together better?  I was thinking I might try mine that are in the freezer now.

Mine were frozen for about an hour, they were hard when I dropped them in the grease.  :-\

Hmmm It probably won't work to well then  :-\  I'm thinking the lack of starchy glue is the problem.  What I have in the freezer has been frozen solid for several weeks so I'll give it a go tonight and see what happens.  I was hopeful though  :'(   I had some that were really crunchy in the oven that were really supper good.  Maybe crisping them up under the broiler??  Stay tuned to this recipe....more experimenting to come  ;)

I read all of the remarks regarding the tator tots and I was laughing out loud, lovingly laughing out loud  ;D and couldn't help but think that this is such a great network of friends!  I was on vacation and don't bring my computer with - so missed you guys all last week.  This week it was just catch up at work and at home - lot's of laundry at home and tons of catch up at work. 

Well, my Thai friend at work gave me another recipe called Green Curry soup with chicken.  She also has bambo which I'm sure are plenty high in sugar - they aren't the usual bamboo shoots you buy in the can that are long and flat.  They look like longer rounder noodles.  There is green curry paste, coconut milk, choice of meat (she used chicken) basis, bamboo and mushroom, thai eggplant and fresh thai chilli (blended).  I'll have to create recipe in appropriate spot on website.  Be looking for it.  I am not good at net carb count and am certain the only thing that is bad here are the bamboo shoots.  We have a really big Asian Market which she and I are going to go to someday and she is going to help me pick out the good stuff.  I am going to get an education on Thai ingredients...I am certain of it and very happy to learn. 

Well take care you all and be good!

Well I started off trying to make tator tots and ended up having something more like 'Polish potato cakes (platzki)'.
So I just poured circles of the mix onto a bit of hot oil (think fritters) and browned off both sides and yum.  Closest substitute for that good old home cooking of mums.  Had the texture of hash browns more than anything.
