Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

You read that right.  Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots.  Why hasn’t this been on the menu before?  Two of my favorite foods, all wrapped into one dish.  Could it really get better?  These appetizers (or side dish) are amazingly simple to make and you can change them up so many ways for different flavors.  I love the plain way the best though.  Smoky and salty, with the underlying flavor of crispy potatoes, it’s an easy dish to make with ingredients you can keep on hand in the refrigerator.  Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots will make any meal that much better.

Two Ingredients for Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots are just that.  Tater tots wrapped in bacon.  But there are so many ways you can make them.  Tater tots come in two basic varieties: with onions and without.  Pick the ones you love the best.  Onions taste great with bacon, but if you aren’t an onion person, go for them without.  Bacon, well, now there’s a few choices. Turkey or pork, they both work in Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots.  I prefer uncured bacon, but you could also go with an applewood smoked, pepper coated, or just about any other delicious flavor of bacon.  If you have a favorite bacon, grab it for this recipe.  You’ll love it in Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots.

Sauces for Your Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

It’s pretty easy to sauce up your Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots.  You can baste them or dip them, the choice is yours.  I think my favorite dip is barbecue sauce.  It’s fantastic to baste on the bites as you are baking them as well.  Something I tried on a whim and loved was sprinkling the bacon with a bit of brown sugar before baking.  It glazed the Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots and added another level of love.  Next time you want a great appetizer or side dish that’s just a little different, try making Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots.
