24 wrapped potato nuggets


  • 12 slices center-cut bacon, cut in half crosswise

  • 24 frozen bite-sized potato nuggets (such as Tater Tots®), partially defrosted

  • 4 slices sharp Cheddar cheese, each cut into 6 small pieces

  • 3 teaspoons hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's RedHot®), or to taste

  • 24 toothpicks


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

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

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