This is a simple appetizer that is great for breakfast or brunch we make them every year for Christmas morning brunch.
Original recipe makes 16 servings
1 (32 ounce) package tater tots
2 pounds sliced bacon, cut in half
6 slices American cheese
1 hr 10 mins
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Arrange the tater tots in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, so that they are no longer frozen but not completely cooked. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
- Place bacon slices in a skillet over medium heat. Fry bacon until cooked through but still flexible. Drain on paper towels.
- Break each slice of cheese into small pieces. Each slice should make about 16 pieces. Place a piece of cheese against the side of a tater tot. Wrap with a piece of the bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place on a baking sheet. Repeat until you run out of tots.
- Bake for about 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bacon is crisp.
