Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

This is barely a recipe, but I’ll post it anyway because it was so delicious. Take a strip of bacon, cut off part of it and wrap it around a tater tot. I didn’t do this, but it might be a good idea to stick a toothpick through it to hold it all together. You might want to soak the toothpicks in water first so it doesn’t catch fire in the oven.

I used thick cut pepper bacon, but I think the thinner stuff would work better. Cook according to the tater tot directions and then finish it off with a blast from the broiler. Remove when the bacon looks cooked. You can spice it up a bit by adding a chopped jalapeno into the wrap.

I had some regular tots on the tray as well and they ended up cooking in bacon grease. Delicious but don’t eat too many or you’ll probably revisit them.
