Brought this to a football-watching party, and it was a great crowd-pleaser.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels and chop coarsely.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; add shallot and cook until fragrant. Stir in flour and cook until light golden, about 2 minutes. Whisk in milk and 2 tablespoons sour cream; stir until smooth and thick, about 5 minutes. Season with black pepper and nutmeg. Stir in 1 cup Cheddar cheese until fully melted.

  • Transfer potatoes to a 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle bacon on top. Pour cheese sauce over the potatoes. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven just until cheese melts, about 7 minutes. Remove from the oven; top with green onions and 2 tablespoons sour cream.

Lets try this again lol... So as I was saying no one really noticed the bacon so Id suggest doubling the bacon and the other thing I would suggest is making double the cheese sauce as I found the sauce soooo good but didn't seem like enough to me I think id it really saucy. My mother and sister in law thought it was enough but I guess its all a matter of preference. Regardless this was definitely a keeper and I will be making it again. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

It was easy to make we used onion tots doubled the bacon but something still seemed to be missing in the flavor. Served it's purpose but not sure I'd make this one again. Read More

It was great tasting and easy to make! I made it for my family so I made a smaller amount and just adjusted the recipe. I did add more bacon. I'm sure I'll make it again! Read More

I'm not a tater tot lover but made it for a birthday party and it was unbelievable. Made exactly as directed but did add just a bit more sour cream to the cheese sauce. Make sure the tater tots are good and crispy before the sauce is added. There will be no leftovers! Read More
