A few years ago I posted our favorite bacon wrapped appetizers, Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts. Those pictures are HORRENDOUS (hello 2012) but the recipe is so so so good (I should rephotograph them). They’re always a favorite and gone before we know it. I love the crunch, the flavor, and the ease.
These Sweet and Spicy Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots are similar, but I feel like they’re a big upgrade. Not only are these bacon tater tots just as easy to make, but they have a soft yet crispy potato center, just the right amount of sweet and spicy, and of course lots of bacon. They’re pop-able, bite sized, and so fun. (Is it okay if I eat 10-20 myself?) Like I said, you better make a triple batch!
