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.
