    1 tablespoon salt

    1. To a large saucepan add potatoes, salt and add water until potatoes are just covered.

    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 and oregano to the shredded potatoes. Mix together.

    7. Form the mixture around hot dog pieces to form tots. Freeze formed tots for 30 minutes.

    8. In a large saucepan, heat oil to 175˚C. Fry the tots, in batches, until browned on all sides. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with additional salt.
