Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

(originally made 10/19/2010)

Tim and I were watching Man Vs Food over the weekend and one of the featured items was deep fried tater tots that had been wrapped in bacon, then smothered with cheese.     He asked if I could make them at home, and has been hounding me since.  All I had on hand were the mini tots, so mine cooked in closer to 2 mins.   Let the tots sit until you can get a toothpick through them, or else you'll have a hard time getting the bacon to stay on the tot!

I had mine with the jalapeno slice, no cheese and dipped them in Sweet Baby Ray's Raspberry Chipotle BBQ sauce (thank you Debbie!).  So good!
