I hear you. It’s Super Bowl Sunday and you have no idea what to bring to the big party. Let me just say this: tater tots; BBQ sauce; bacon. Oh yeah, bleu cheese dip. Read on fans.
On a large tin foil lined cookie sheet, arrange your frozen tater tots in neat little rows (hey, I’m OCD). Wrap each tot with a strip of cut bacon and place on cookie sheet seem side down. Repeat until all tater tots have a piece of bacon wrapped snuggly around them. Bake in a 400º oven for 20 minutes, or until the bacon starts to crisp. Remove from oven and liberally brush on the BBQ sauce on each tater tot. I’m serious — be generous with the sauce!! It adds great flavor. Cook another 10 minutes until sauce is sizzling with yumminess. Arrange the tots in neat little rows on a platter and serve with a bowl of bleu cheese dressing (btw, I have an amazing recipe for bleu cheese dressing right here on this blog!). Use your fingers when dipping — I tried using cute little forks but the tots fall apart. Plus, BBQ sauce is always finger licking good!!
1 bag frozen Tater Tots
1 lb bacon, cut into 3 inch strips
1 bottle your favorite BBQ sauce
Bleu cheese dressing (see my recipe for Creamy Bleu Cheese Dressing in Salads and Dressings category)
Makes a whole lot of Tots Gone Wild if you use entire bag!
