I made this last week and ended up eating them for lunch. I was only going to sample one or two, but I couldn't stop eating them so I just made them lunch. SO good!
I can't wait to share these with our tailgate group. I will bake the bacon wrapped tater tots before the game and then top them with the bacon and cheddar in the parking lot. I have a kitchen torch to melt the cheese. The torch will also help warm up the tots. If you don't tailgate, no worries! These also make a great party appetizer. I promise people will go crazy over them!!
"Cracked Out" Tater Tot-Chos
about 100 tater tots
- 1 (32-oz) package frozen tater tots
- 2 pounds bacon
- 1/4 cup Ranch dressing
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and set a baking rack inside. Set aside.
Cut each strip of bacon into thirds. Wrap tater tots in bacon and set on baking rack.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Place cooked tater tots on platter or in a 9x13-inch pan. Drizzle with Ranch dressing and top with shredded cheese. Return to oven for 5 minutes, until cheese has melted.
