Homemade Tater Tots?

One of the posts here talked about making sloppy joe's/manwiches from scratch and enjoying with tater tots. I love tater tots and I watched one of those shows where they go into food factories and one was the tater tot factory (but they didn't show much due to copyright reasons or something).
Anyway, is it possible to make tater tots at home, starting from potatoes? Or is it something that you really just need to go and buy from the frozen food section?
Just google "tater tot recipe" and you'll find a few, though most of what you'll come up with are recipes that use tater tots.
But if you read the ingredients on a bag of tater tots you'll see that "Homemade tater tots" is an oxymoron. Kinda like baking your own twinkies.
BTW, I think the Safeway house brand (tater-treats or something like that) is better than the original.
Glad you all liked them. The chive addition might be quite nice. All recipes evolve with good cooks adding their own touches and it becomes their own.
