Air Fryer Bacon-Chorizo Tater Tot® Dressing

This is a decidedly nontraditional way of making dressing, but packs a lot of flavor with few ingredients! The best part, the portion size is perfect for couples, or the solo diner. You will need a 7-inch springform pan or other air fryer-safe container.

4 servings


  • nonstick cooking spray

  • ¼ pound bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 9 ounces ground chorizo

  • ½ pound frozen bite-size potato nuggets (such as Tater Tots®)

  • 1 stalk celery, sliced

  • ¼ cup water

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon garlic base (such as Better Than Bouillon® Roasted Garlic Base)


  1. Preheat the oven to 370 degrees F (190 degrees C). Allow to preheat for 2 minutes. Spray a 7-inch springform pan with cooking spray.

  2. Place Tater Tots® into the air fryer basket and bake for 15 minutes, shaking basket halfway.

  3. Meanwhile, cook bacon pieces in a small skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Add chorizo and celery slices. Saute for about 3 minutes. Drain excess grease.

  4. Transfer Tater Tots® to a bowl and pour bacon-chorizo mixture on top. Mix in water, egg, and garlic base; stir to thoroughly coat. Fill into prepared springform pan.

  5. Reduce temperature of air fryer to 320 degrees F (160 degrees C). Add springform pan to the air fryer and cook for 7 minutes until dressing is cooked through. If dressing doesn't look done, cook an additional 3 minutes.
