My family LOVES bacon. Really. They want to marry it. We saw this recipe on an episode of Man Vs. Food and had to try it. We like to watch food shows because 1. We like food and 2. There is rarely any violence or scandal on cooking shows. 3. We like food.
Bacon wrapped tater tots are super easy. You take frozen tater tots and wrap a half of piece of bacon around and secure with a toothpick. That is really the hardest part - putting the toothpick through the frozen tater tot. Make sure you get the pointy toothpicks.
Drop those tots down in the Fry Daddy and watch them bubble. Fun!
Tayte was quite confused as to what we were cooking since we often call him Tayter Tot. We don't often wrap him in bacon though. He is eagerly awaiting his batch of pork wrapped, deep fried happiness on a stick.
You will know when they are done. You will feel it in your taste buds. Then you put them on a plate and immediately sprinkle with cheese for a melty effect.
And if you give a kid a bacon wrapped tot he will want a cheese filled burger. Juicy Lucy - another dinner experiment we got off Man Vs. Food. My kids LOVE these too. My oldest tried to get me to stuff a piece of bacon in there with the cheese. I refused.
They are juicy!
He was too focused on his food to roll his eyes at my picture taking. Success!
I had a picture of Tan Man too, but he had cheese and ketchup smeared all over his person. It was not for the weak stomached!!
As long as you don't have a cholesterol test coming up you should make these items for your family. They will be so grateful they might even do the dishes!!
Got any other ideas on things I can make so excite my family and insure their undying love? What are you family favorites? I need new dinner ideas.
I am spending the last few hundred days of my thirties loving my husband and five kids, teaching, cooking, training, reading, and thanking God for all that I have been blessed with.
I hope to share these adventures with you fellow adults in order to retain my sanity and vocabulary.
In the process I am sure my ham licking, choke holding, pop tart hiding family will be approached about gaining fame and fortune on a reality show titled, "How to Raise Quirky Kids in a Chaotic Home."
Thanks for stopping by!
