So here it is. Our first food video of this new season and since we are Eagles fans and love cheesesteaks, why not start with a Philly staple, the Philadelphia Cheesesteak. But, we couldn’t just make a cheesesteak. We had to make a Philly Special Cheesesteak!
These Philly Cheesesteaks Tater Tots have everything your favorite cheesesteak has, onion and whiz but instead of a roll we make Tatar tots from scratch and layer the cheesesteak on top adding a few more special ingredients to give it a little heat with banana peppers and sriracha mayo.
While we did make the tots from scratch, if you want to speed things up, you can use store bought frozen tater tots, but the fresh from scratch tots taste a lot better. Trust us. No, really.
This is an amazing appetizer to commemorate the Philly Special play ran by the reigning Super Bowl Champs - The Philadelphia Eagles. But we are not going to rub it in.
Peel Potatoes and place in a large saucepan making sure to cover by at least 1 inch.
Boil potatoes and cook until parboiled, about 8 minutes; drain and let cool.
While the potato are cooling, cut peppers and onions.
If using a food processor cut potatoes to fit in processor or grate potatoes in cheese grater.
If potatoes have excess moisture squeeze out as much as you can.
Place in a bowl and add seasoning and flour and form your potatoes into tots.
Heat pan with oil and cook tots in oil until golden brown
Rest cooked tater tots on paper towel.
