Apparently, many people stir their coffee with a piece of bacon so:

Not sure if its gluten-free, probably is.

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
 
stepsingredients per stepinstructions

  • steps_1.png
     
    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.
  • steps_3.png
     
    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!

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
