Sweet Bacon Wrapped Tator Tots

These bacon wrapped Tator Tots are soo good. Crisp smoky bacon wrapped in crisp tator tot covered in brown sugar and chili powder. These are the ultimate tator tots, oh you are going to love these.

These are perfect for a side dish for dinner, appetizers for parties, football games, or just a snack. I make these for a snack at night while watching tv. But perfect to go with a steak, chicken, or a pork dish.


50 - 55 tater tots (thawed to room temperature)
1-16-ounce package Bacon (strips cut in 4 pieces)
2/3 cup Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons Chili Powder


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl combine the brown sugar and chili powder, stir to combine and set aside. 
 2. Line a cookie sheet with foil and place a cooling rack on top of the pan. This will allow the bacon to crisp on all sides.
3. Cut the bacon in half and then cut each half in half again. This will give you 4 pieces of each slice of bacon 
4. Wrap each thawed tater tot in bacon and then roll it in the brown sugar mixture. Place on top of the cookie rack.
5. Bake about 10 to 16 minutes at 375 degrees then raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees and let them cook another 5 minutes. Check to see if they are crisping up. You may need to leave them in 5 minutes longer. you want them nice and crispy. Check frequently at this point so they don't burn. Serve warm.
* if needed crank oven to 425 for like 2-3 minutes after putting them in on 400 for 5 minutes and they are still not crisp enough for you, this depends if you like these dark and extra crispy
