Candy Bacon Tater Tots Appetizers

Pin It Now!

 OH BOY Bacon wrapped ANYTHING!

But these little gems are not just anything, these have that wonderful combination of Heat (I used a sprinkle of Cajun Spice mix) with the sweat of Candy Bacon.  All that heat/sweet flavor wrapped inside a savory piece of grated potato and BACON!

These beauties will become the most popular and talked about appetizer for your party, pass a plate event, potluck or any big family gathering.  Put out a plate and bang they are gone, leaving that frou frou Foie Gras appetizer your sister-in-law spent hours making in the leftover pile.

May not be fancy, may not be pretty, but flavorful, delicious and at teh end of the night... Gone

Only 4 ingredients, easy and fast to assemble and popular!


 OK... Here's what I did...

Candy Bacon
Tater Tots

  • 36 Frozen Tater Tots
  • 12 slices Bacon
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • Sprinkle of Cajun Spices (can use Taco Spice, Chili Powder or your favorite BBQ Rub)
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut each bacon strip into 3 equal size pieces.
  3. 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.
  4. Wrap each frozen tater tot in one of the cut bacon pieces.  Bacon will overlap by a fraction of an inch.
  5. Roll the wrapped tot in the brown sugar coating all around.
  6. Place the tot seam side down on the wire rack.  Repeat with remaining bacon and tots.
  7. Sprinkle the Spice mix on top of the bacon wrapped tots.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, check the crispiness of the bacon (I check the color).  Continue to bake at 5 minute intervals until the bacon is a beautiful crispy cooked bacon color.
  9. Serve warm and ENJOY!
