Bacon Time! Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

Perfect for any get together. Who doesn't love bacon! I guess the only way to beat anything bacon wrapped would be to have bacon wrapped bacon wrapped in bacon.
Bacon-Wrapped Tater Tots
24 partially defrosted Tater Tots
12 strips Center Cut Bacon, cut in half
24 small chucks of Sharp Cheddar Cheese (1/2" x 1/4")
Tabasco sauce
Tooth picks
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and spray with non stick spray.
Lay slice of bacon on flat surface and place tot in center. With sharp knife gently cut a slit down the center of the tot, but not all teh way thru. Wiggle in a piece of cheese. Sprinkle with a couple dashes Tabasco sauce. Wrap bacon tightly around the surface and secure with toothpick.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until they appear to be cooked thru and bacon is crispy. Serve immediately.
A couple variations are adding a slice of pickle on top of cheese or roll bacon wrapped tot in brown sugar for a little sweet flavor. Becareful not to over bake as the sugar will burn.
Ready for the oven!
