Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

For my PIGskin Challenge this week I chose another great party idea from back in the day... Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots. I chose to keep it simple and just use the bacon and tater tot, possible additions are cheddar or American cheese and slices of jalapeno. Dipping sauce can be anything from ranch dressing to ketchup and hot sauce mixed together.
These were easy and tasty, I wouldn't hesitate to make them for a crowd.
And they were good at room temperature too, making them perfect party food.

Bacon, I cut each slice into thirds, most call for cutting it in half-your choice
Dipping Sauce
  1. Let Tots sit out for about 15 minutes then wrap each one in a piece of bacon.
  2. Place seam side down on foil covered (for easier clean-up) baking sheet/dish. Some folks secure them with a toothpick first but I don't like how brown the toothpicks get in the oven. I did have a couple "blow outs" that came unwrapped, which I like to refer to as the Cook's treat:@). 
  3. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is brown.
  4. Serve with whatever you'd like to dip them in, I used Bleu Cheese Dressing the day I made them.
Storm update: I went shopping for the first time this morning, while folks may have to stop at a couple different supermarkets we can get most things we need. I noticed no milk at Walmart, minimal frozen foods at ShopRite and meat was kept to a minimum everywhere. We have gasoline and while internet-TV-phones are intermittent things are slowly getting back to "normal" here North of Philly. 
I am grateful.

Have a happy day:@)


  1. Oh my.. these would just be sooo good to sit and pig out on. One of those snacks where I would probably lose count as to how many I have eaten.

  2. I am glad you are all getting back on your feet there, Lynn. What a nightmare it must have been.

    Now here is a great snack that even I could manage! It looks tasty, too! Do you have any suggestions on what to pair it with as a side dish?


  3. I'd forgotten all about making these..they are very good!

  4. I am definitely trying these! I usually make the bacon wrapped lil smokies but that gets so expensive, especially when making a lot! Also, I made your Grammy's White Sheet Cake a couple of weeks ago and it was delicious!!!!

  5. Sounds like a tasty appy, Lynn! I'm glad things are starting to get back to normal. Hope you have a good weekend!

  6. These would be great for breakfast instead of the usual hash browns.

  7. Ha - I think my grandson would LOVE those. sandie

  8. Glad you are okay and finding groceries. Bet guys really go for these appetizers. I could eat a few myself :)

  9. Those look good, Lynn. Perfect for a football-watching party! Glad you are doing ok, although life has thrown you a curve ball. I'm glad you are managing as well as you are. Have a good wknd, Lynn.

  10. I'm so glad that you all are doing okay! This is such a great recipe! You are officially the Queen of Yummy Snacks That Make All Teens Love Their Mothers :) This recipe will ensure that I have a houseful of them at Thanksgiving!
    xo, Andrea

  11. Yummo! Tater tots and bacon. I would eat way too many of these! :)

  12. Bacon & Tator Tots~ yum! I wouldn't mind a few cook's treats myself :)

    Thank heavens you have gasoline!

  13. I could pop a dozen of these in my mouth, no problem. I hope things get back to normal soon for everyone.

  14. Bacon makes everything better doesn't it? Glad to hear things are getting back to normal!

  15. Oh darn you!!! YUMMY!!!!!
    So glad you got through this storm and managing. We have family in Chesapeake and they are without power last I heard. My heart goes out to everyone suffering. You just never know when it could be you next.
    (((HUGS))) Susanne :)

  16. Two of my favorite things ~ bacon and tater tots. Yum.
    I'm glad to hear you made it through the storm OK. A lot of my family is in south Jersey; they sort of took it on the nose, but seem to be doing pretty good.

  17. In all my many years, I had never heard of doing this. What a great idea. I would eat way too many of these. Glad you and yours are OK. It is hard to keep track of where everyone lives. Thanks for sharing.


Thanks for stopping by!
