2 cups frozen tater tots (thawed to room temperature)
shredded sharp cheddar cheese
raw applewood bacon slices
After thawing the tater tots, place them on paper towels to drain off any moisture. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper OR no stick foil (if you don't do this, you will have an awful mess). Cut a bacon slice into four equal sized pieces. Place one bacon piece on the cookie sheet. Place one tater tot in the center of the bacon. Sprinkle some shredded sharp cheddar cheese over the top of the tater tot. Fold up the two sides of the bacon toward the top of the tater tot. Use a toothpick to go through the bacon and the tater tot. Repeat with as many as you wish. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, remove from oven, use the toothpicks to knock each one over sideways so the bottom of the bacon is exposed. Return to oven and bake 10-15 minutes longer or until bacon is done to your liking.
