Bacon & Cheese Wrapped Tater Tots Recipe

 

So I made these bacon and cheese wrapped tater tots for the Super Bowl and they were a HIT! They were completely gone before the half-time show. I found this recipe on Pinterest by  It was pretty easy to follow. The only thing I left out of my tater tots was the brown sugar and I didn’t really miss it.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups frozen tater tots, at room temperature
  • 1 ounce sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 1/4-inch squares
  • 4 slices bacon, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves

*Original Recipe also had Brown Sugar

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside. *NOTE I did not line my baking sheet and I thought cooking spray could be enough. It wasn’t!! Cheese loves to stick and can be a pain to get out.
  • Working one at a time, wrap each tater tot and cheese square in a piece of bacon. Repeat with remaining tater tots, cheese squares and bacon pieces.
  • Place tater tots seam side down onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, using metal tongs to turn at halftime.*Did not turn at halftime but it wasn’t the end of the world.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

 

Like I said these were a hit! If you are on a diet…use your common sense.
