YOU GUYS! These are simple, but the flavors together will blow your mind! It is just a tater tot, wrapped in a half a piece of bacon, roll it in some brown sugar and bake. Those bad boys come out of the oven with the right amount of crispy bacon, sweetness from the brown sugar, and that chewy tater tot in the center.

You may as well just get rid of any other appetizer recipe in your recipe box because I am pretty sure this is the only one you need.

Hubby (yelling from the couch): “Call them Award-Winning in your post!”

Me: Um, how can they be award winning? I just made them, for the first time…ever!

Hubby: Did you taste them? Why don’t you make some more, taste one, bring me the rest, and tell me how they aren’t winning awards?!

LOL. There you have it, folks. Apparently, they are already award winning too! 😉 Whether it is game day, or you are having people over for the holidays, these Bacon Tater Bombs are quick, easy, and amazing!

How to Make Bacon Tater Bombs

These are simple to make! REALLY SIMPLE! Just take your package of bacon and cut the slices in half down the center creating two shorter pieces of bacon.

Wrap each tater tot in a small bacon half. Then, roll it in some brown sugar.

Place them seem side down (so they don’t unroll) on a baking sheet. Once you have as many as you want on the baking sheet bake them at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes give them a turn and bake for another 10 minutes.

Serve as soon as they are done. JUST YUM!!

Gluten Free

Not all tater tots …or bacon for that matter, is created equal. Double check you packages to make sure that they are both gluten free before you start.


  • Cover your baking sheet with foil or parchment paper for easy clean up.
  • Try making these in the air fryer (OMG!)
  • Blend in a little spice with the brown sugar for a little kick to your bites.
