Cook the potatoes in boiling water until tender. Then process them using a ricer or food mill OR mash them with a fork for a more lumpy texture.
Add the flour, egg, some seasoned salt and pepper and combine.
Form into balls, and then slightly flatten into discs. Let them cool completely.
Heat some canola oil in a cast-iron skillet and fry the cooled tots until golden. Drain on a paper towel.
You can freeze the tots after frying. Remove from the freezer when you need them and reheat in a 400 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
