Cheesy Bacon Tater Tots - get the recipe at

Crispy hot tater tots topped with bacon are covered in melting cheese and then served with the toppings of your choice to make these irresistible Cheesy Bacon Tater Tots. We dipped the tots into our favorite barbecue sauce and my whole family couldn’t stop eating them.

As soon as I saw this recipe in my friend Phi‘s new cookbook, I thought of our favorite Crispy Cheese and Bacon Potatoes. I knew that my family would love these Loaded Tater Tots. The fact that it’s a fast and easy shortcut to that irresistible flavor combination that we love makes it an instant family favorite.

Cheesy Bacon Tater Tots are an irresistible recipe from Fast and Easy Five Ingredient Recipes: A Cookbook For Busy People

Also, if you’re with me on Snapchat, you may have caught a sneak peek into the book yesterday. My husband and kids have already marked a bunch of great recipes to try. Fast and Easy Five Ingredient Recipes releases on July 19, but you can pre-order the cookbook now at HALF price!

    So easy- very good! I used the salad topping bacon bits and they were just fine (would only cook for 1o minutes though). Also, I moved the whole thing from the cookie sheet to a glass casserole dish (lightly sprayed with oil) right before adding the cheese. I was able to carry it straight to my event and it was a huge hit. Thank you!5 stars
