Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

Bacon and potatoes.....potatoes and bacon! These little guys are stinkin' good! Who doesn't love a tot wrapped in sweet and spicy bacon? These are super fast to put together and you can make as many or as little as you like! They reheat great in the microwave because the bacon gets a little more crispy. Not sure it gets more delicious, though!

Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

1 package bacon ~ cut in half
Tator tots to equal bacon pieces
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper ~ more or less to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place a cookie cooling rack on top of a baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray.

In a shallow bowl, combine the brown sugar and the cayenne pepper.

Lay a bacon half on top of the sugar mixture then roll a tot up inside.

Secure with a toothpick. Place on rack.

Continue until all bacon and tots are used.

Bake for 20 minutes or until bacon is crispy.

This is it! All you need for these fun little bites!

  1. Have you prepped these the night before and then popped in the oven in the morning?

    1. I have not done that but I'm not sure why you couldn't. I might try one tot that way before doing a whole pan full just to test it out.
