  1. Cut block of mozzarella into small cubes, about a ½ inch (1 ¼ cm).
  2. Cut pepperoni in half.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine hash browns, Italian seasoning, salt, garlic powder, and egg. Mix well.
  4. Grab a small handful of the hash brown mixture and flatten out in the palm of your hand.
  5. Place 1 or 2 slices of pepperoni and a cube of cheese on top.
  6. Fold the hash brown mixture around the cheese and pepperoni. Squeeze and compress until the mixture completely covers the filling and stays in a cylindrical form. Repeat until all of the mixture is used.
  7. Freeze tots for 20+ minutes.
  8. In a large saucepan, heat oil to 350˚F (180˚C). Fry tots in batches, three at a time, until golden brown. Drain on paper towel.
  9. Serve immediately with marinara sauce.
  10. Enjoy!
