This recipe found me about a year ago and I have absolutely loved it ever since! Given its ingredients I was surprised to find it seems to be a hit no matter where it's served.

  • Lay each slice of bacon onto a work surface and place a potato nugget in the center of each bacon slice. Cut a slit down the center of each potato nugget and place a Cheddar cheese piece into the slit. Top each nugget with a dash of hot sauce. Wrap bacon around each filled potato nugget and secure the bacon to the nugget with a toothpick. Transfer the wrapped nuggets to the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until nuggets are cooked through and bacon is crispy, 15 to 20 minutes.

Turned out very well - we took them to a potluck dinner party and everyone loved them. We used regular bacon, sharp cheddar, and smoked chipotle flavor Tabasco sauce. They tasted better after they cooled a bit. Read More

Oh so good. The only change, after making them three times, will be to use a slice of hot pepper instead of the hot sauce. The sauce just seems to seep away with the bacon grease and melting cheese. So far it is a big hit with everyone as is. Read More

The best thing we had for Christmas Eve. So easy and it was a party in your mouth when you ate them. I used smoked gouda for my cheese and put them back in the refrigerator to chill back up before cooking them. I think that helped them crisp up better. Will do again for sure. Read More

I thought it was an excellent snack but a little time consuming to put together. I cooked a little longer to get bacon a little more crispy. Read More

It's a good combination but very difficult to slit a tater tot. Simply place a cube of cheese on the tater tot and roll it up. Not sure I would make it again. Read More

I was making a tator tot casserole so I thought I would try these. I only made 8 because they looked like a lot of preparation. And they were. I put a slice of jalapeño in each one and used a fourth of a slice of bacon which was plenty. I broiled both sides because the bacon didn’t look crispy. They were pretty good. I dipped them in sour cream. Read More
