Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

As I have stated in the past, I love tater tots, so much that I go out of my way and make my own. There is something about the crisp exterior, and the soft interior, that when those textures are combined with a bit of seasoning, well, you have yourself a home run side dish. If you have been following me for some time, you will also know that I love bacon, and Nueske’s bacon, at that.  So as I was sitting around on a Sunday morning and rummaging through the refrigerator, I looked at the two ingredients, and figured I would make some pre-game appetizers.

Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots Recipe

Let’s get started on this really delicious, and simple recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 12 Frozen tater tots
  • 3 strips of your favorite bacon
  • Blue cheese crumbles, optional

I told you it was simple. Three ingredients? Yes, please.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Stack the three slices of bacon, then cut in half. Take the half slices, and cut those in half, lengthwise.

Next, lay a slice of the bacon on a plate. Add the tater tot about in inch from the bottom of the bacon. Roll over to cover the tater tot, and place on a baking sheet, seam side down.

Repeat with the remaining tater tots.

Place in the preheated oven and cook them for about 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp.

When you are ready to serve, place them on your serving dish, and serve alongside some blue cheese.

The end result is nothing short of amazing. You get that crisp, smoky bacon, that when paired with a simple tater tot, and that hit of blue cheese, whoa! These bacon wrapped tater tots are super easy to make and really please any bacon lover. I hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. Well it sounds great except for the bits of blue cheese alongside at the end. Why not make an awesome blue cheese dressing with good chunks and use it for a dip. Even better in my book.

    1. Hi Laura – It’s funny you mention that as one of my friends suggested a sauce today. I immediately fired back that I wanted to do a blue cheese sauce, but I did not have a couple of the ingredients on hand for the sauce. Next time…

  2. This sounds like a snack/appetizer that I would eat far too much of. In other words, I love these and want them right now! 😛
