Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

Today I was looking through my pictures and came across the one below.
 I made this appetizer months ago and it was a huge hit. I can't believe that I forgot to post it.
It's nothing fancy....
(the original recipe doesn't call it "tasty trashy taters" for nothing..)
It's not healthy...
(it's fried, oozing with cheese, AND wrapped with bacon and sugar...)
But it sure does taste good thanks to the salty bacon and sweet brown sugar! 
In my opinion salty and sweet is the best combo.
This would be PERFECT for the next time the man in your life invites all his buddies over.
Not to be sexist, but this just screams man food for me.
It's probably because my boyfriend loves anything that is wrapped in bacon haha. 
I'll certainly be saving this recipe for football season.
Football, beer, and trashy taters...
Sounds good to me!

Recipe Source: The Chew
  • 1/2 bag tater tots (thaw to room temperature)
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese (cut into tiny blocks-about 1/4 inch)
  • frank's hot sauce
  • 16 ounces of bacon strips (cut strips in half)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line a cookie sheet with foil.
  • Create an assembly line to make the tater tots:
  • First, cut a small whole in the tater and place a cube of cheese in the opening.
  • Dash tater with hot sauce. 
  • Wrap the tater with bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  •  Roll the bacon bundle in brown sugar. 
  • Place on baking sheet. 
  • Repeat with each tater.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. 
  • Flip tater tots over and bake for a remaining 5-10 minutes.
On another note, this is my first week co-hosting Tasty Tuesdays over at Anyonita Nibbles.

    1. i agree, football season is perfect for this! i'm glad to be cohosting with you as well!

  5. This is pretty much my dream come true in so many ways! Bacon and tater tots--now why didn't I think of that? These look like awesome party appetizers, though I would happily chow my way through a platter of these on my own :)

    1. i would chow down on a platter of these as well...thats why i would only make them for a party. they are too dangerous to be left alone with!!

  6. Bacon, potatoes, cheese and hot sauce? This recipe speaks my language! So yummy!
