It's time for families to gather for holiday meals. If you want incredibly joyful people at your party, serve them an appetizer that will fly off of the serving dish...Bacon-Wrapped Tator Tots. So easy to make and who does not love bacon or tater tots?
1 pound applewood smoked bacon
1, 32-oz bag of Ore-Ida tater tots
- Place tater tot bag in refrigerator 24-hours before making the recipe (you want the tots to be thawed, not frozen).
- Pre-heat oven to 450º.
- Cut each strip of bacon into 3 equal pieces. Wrap each tater tot with the 1/3 strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
- Place a wire sheet grate over a flat cookie sheet (this allows the tots to cook all over, meaning you don't have to turn them half way through the process). Put tots on grate and slide into the oven. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and serve.
Wine pairing: Nothing goes better with bacon than Pinot Noir.
