  • 1 pkg bacon
  • 1 pkg tater tots
  • 1 pkg wooden toothpicks


  1. Remove tater tots from the freezer and bag and let thaw out slightly. Alternatively, you can toss them in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Beware, the tater tots become squishy when thawed.

  2. Once the tater tots are thawed, begin wrapping each tot with the one-half piece of bacon. Secure the bacon with tooth picks. Be careful not to squish the tater tots when securing.

  3. Heat the grill to 400° degrees F.

  4. Place the tater tots on the upper grill rack to cook slowly. The grease from the bacon will melt and flame up so be prepared to disperse the flame as you see fit.

  5. Turn every so often to cook the bacon thoroughly. Once the bacon is cooked the tater tots should be ready. This should take about 15 minutes.

  6. Remove from the grill and let stand for about a minute to cool. Serve immediately.
