I wish these didn't sound like such a long, drawn out process, LOL. I'm INCREDIBLY lazy in the kitchen and Jeff's Fast Food DVD is my idea of cooking. I miss tater tots (one of my vegan-but-horrible-for-you guilty pleasures in the vegan SAD days), but just reading about this wears me out, LOL.
I love people that go to the trouble of making a blog with great pictures and step by step instructions but it does make the recipe seem more complicated than it really is. This does require more time than Jeff's meals because you do have to cook the potatoes and bake them. But the prep time isn't bad. I keep a mixture of the spices/flour in the fridge so it is just a matter of making the potatoes.
Here is a summary:
Peel and dice potatoes.
Put in pot of water, bring to boil, and let cook for just a few minutes (3 or 4 minutes).
Toss in some type of flour and any spices you like and shake the potatoes up so the mixture coats the potatoes.
Dump on a cookie sheet (I personally do not use parchment for this recipe and I never use non-stick). Spread them out and bake at 500 for 40 - 45 minutes.
