I’m a big fan of bacon and things wrapped in bacon.
While I was enjoying a bacon wrapped chicken breast the other day and I got to thinking about what else would be good wrapped in bacon. Naturally, I thought of my old friend the Tater Tot.
Thus began the great BaconTot experiment of 2010.
It turn out that half a slice of bacon, thick cut of course, goes nicely around a single tot. I tried some with toothpicks holding the bacon on because I wasn’t sure it would stay on the tot. You don’t need them. The bacon clings to the tot like a long lost lover. I used a broiler pan so the excess grease would run off.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and bake for 20 minutes.
NOM! The salty bacon is wonderful with the Tater Tot. It’s a perfect finger food, and takes very little effort to make.
