Reinhardt's Smoked Sausage Tots


Sausage tots
5-6 potatoes

Cold water

1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons flour

½ teaspoon paprika

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 egg

20 miniature smoked sausages

Oil for frying

Curried ketchup
½ cup ketchup

1½ tablespoons mayonnaise

1½ teaspoons curry powder

¼ teaspoon onion powder

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon honey


1. Place peeled and halved potatoes in a large saucepan. Add cold water until just covered, and season with salt.

2. Bring the water to a boil and cook until potatoes are fork tender.

3. Remove potatoes to a colander and run under cold water to cool.

4. Pour out onto a dish towel and dry potatoes thoroughly.

5. Using a cheese grater, shred the potatoes into a large bowl.

6. Add Parmesan, flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to the shredded potatoes. Mix together. Add the whisked egg and stir to coat the potatoes.

7. Cut a miniature smoked sausage in half and form about 2 tablespoons of the mixture around it to form tots. Freeze formed tots for 15 minutes.

8. In a large saucepan, heat oil to 175˚C/350°F. Fry the tots, in batches, until browned on all sides. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.

9. In a small bowl, combine all of the curried ketchup ingredients and thoroughly blend together.

10. Serve tots with the curried ketchup.

11. Enjoy!!
