It was bacon day today on The Chew.  I thought a coffee cake might translate well to gluten free.  For the really lazy, like me, the Betty Crocker gluten-free yellow cake mix makes a good coffee cake.

Grilled bacon is unctuous.  Take a slab of side bacon, slice thickly, brush with maple syrup and BBQ sauce and grill.  It crisps and becomes absolute perfection.

I'm dying to try this one!

Tasty Trashy Taters

 

ingredients
  • 1/2 bag Tater Tots (thawed to room temperature)
  • 1 8-ounce package Sharp Cheddar Cheese (cut in 1/4-inch squares)
  • Hot Sauce
  • 1 16-ounce package Bacon (strips cut in half)
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
kitchenware
  • Sheet Pan

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil.
  • steps_2.png
    1/2 bag Tater Tots (thawed to room temperature)

    1 8-ounce package Sharp Cheddar Cheese (cut in 1/4-inch squares)

    Hot Sauce

    1 16-ounce package Bacon (strips cut in half)

    1/2 cup Brown Sugar

    To assemble, cut a small whole in each tater tot and place cheese in opening. Dash with hot sauce and wrap in bacon. Secure with toothpick, then roll in brown sugar. Place on baking sheet and repeat with remaining taters.

    Bake about 15 to 20 minutes, flipping tots halfway through so that bacon cooks evenly. The cheese may bubble out and burn, but you can trim or pull it off when you take them out to cool. Serve warm.

    Helpful Tips:

    1. Cut each slice of bacon in half for the perfect size strip to wrap each tot.

    2. Roll each bacon bundle in brown sugar for extra crunch.

 

 

 

I made this last night.  Its WONDERFUL! 

 

They are a bit hard to assemble.  I left my tator tots out too long to thaw and they seemed a bit dry and crumbled when cut.  I might try them frozen next time. I found the easiest thing is just to slice them in half and stick 2 thin pieces of a good sharp cheddar in between, then wrap.  I laid out the little half strips of bacon and splashed them with the hot sauce first.  I stuck them in the brown sugar for the bottom and put them on a pan lines with foil (they make a big mess).  At the end, I added brown sugar to the tops.  They are fragile while you are making them so that was easier.  I cooked them 10 minutes longer and didn't flip them.

I saw this recipe once and thought I would like to try it. I'm thinking that again but I have a brilliant idea. Instead of buying tater tots, wouldn't it almost be easier to just make tater tots and shape them into little balls around the cheese?

Or scratch that and just do the bacon ranch tots and put them around little cheese squares. I still like the idea of them being bacon wrapped though. I think it has been far too long since I've had a tot, I need to make some!

Me too...note on the assembly after Karen added this note...I left the tot bag in the frig for the afternoon (tots were still real cold but not frozen solid) then assembled by cutting in half, placing the cube of cheddar between -- I wrapped in bacon - skipped the hot sauce as one of my men can't do pepper - did serve with hot sauce and others added at the table.  Also I placed the bacon wrapped tot directly on the foil lined cookie sheet and sprinkled the brown sugar on top -- seemed to work as the sugar mixed with the bacon fat as it bakes and they seemed to have sugar all over when done.

 

:wub:  picky Sister loved them -- men too -- but fun to spoil by Sis once in awhile :wub:

I have family that posts the most annoying crap on facebook all the time... but today I saw this. :D

 

Bacon Cheddar Potato Cakes - made from leftover mashed potatoes

3 slices bacon
4 cups cold leftover mashed potatoes
2 eggs
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon slices, crumble, and set aside. Leave the bacon drippings in the skillet.

Mix the mashed potatoes, eggs, onion powder, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; stir in the crumbled bacon and Cheddar cheese.

Form the mixture into 8 patties. Heat the bacon drippings over medium heat, and pan-fry the patties in the drippings until crisp on each side, about 4 minutes per side.

My Irish grandma used to do this with mashed potatoes. We didn't add any bacon or cheese. We called them Irish Latkes! These would be so yummy!

My grammy would do this too. We simply called them potato cakes or potato pancakes. But... with bacon and cheese? YES PLEASE!

    Here's a great article on SIBO... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3099351/ From this article, I learned SIBO can cause vitamin B12 deficiency that doesn't show up on regular tests.  There's a section about Celiac Disease ...
    Hi, this is an old post and the other posters might not be around. Yes, Celiac Disease causes malabsorption which results in malnutrition.  Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can occur. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3...
    Hello again.  I forgot to mention Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), which can also cause abdominal pain and B12 deficiency which is "hidden".   https://health.usnews.com/health-news/blogs/eat-run/articles/2018-05-21/4-overlooked-ca...
