Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

This sounds like a great recipe and snack that I may have to try here soon. Who doesn't like tater tots and I know no one can resist the salty sin of bacon, so this seems like a match made in heaven! Personally I would leave out the secret sauce and just go for them plain, but hey you can cook them however you want.

Bacon Unwrapped: Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

Well being the good Idaho girl I am, I love me some tater tots just as much as Napoleon Dynamite himself. So obviously I had to make some for myself.

I used Ore-Ida tater tots (duh) and D'Artagnan wild boar bacon (which I've been obsessed with since Christmas) for my experiment. The wild boar bacon actually turned out to be the perfect bacon for this project, because the strips are smaller and don't overwhelm the tots.

I cut each piece of wild boar bacon in half and wrapped a piece around each tot. I placed them on a cookie sheet and baked them at 430 degrees for about 18 minutes.

The result was absolutely delicious and completely sinful. They would be fantastic with "special sauce" (ie mayo and ketchup mixed together), and also wouldn't be bad with a pickle slice on top.

These would make a fantastic snack for an afternoon of watching sports or entertaining friends. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed.

What a great idea! Have you tried using D'Artagnan Duck Bacon instead of Wild Boar Bacon for this yet?

No, I have not even heard of D'Artagnan Duck Bacon...what is it? Do you have a link?

Claims - Half the fat of pork bacon! Twice the flavor! If this is true I am going to have to try some. Can you only get it online or would any local grocery store have it?

I am sure they have it at the cornerstore.
