Recipe Box, Brown Sugar Bacon Bundles

Over the holidays, we had an extra helping of chaos this year, so I made a lot of very simple dishes, like this version of “Bacon Bombs.”  It is one of those recipes that I just had to try, one of those, “Oh no you didn’t !” type recipes…you know, everything about it is just sorta wrong…processed potatoes, bacon, sugar…lot’s of no nos 😱


I saw these Bacon Wrapped Tater Tot Bombs over at Damn Delicious and knew this would be so stupid easy  a hit


The original recipe calls for a chunk of cheddar cheese, but I opted to make a healthy version, hahaha, and eliminated the cheese 😊


I did roll them in brown sugar, I couldn’t resist this step ^^’


I also made these the day before cooking, and refrigerated them in a covered container

Mine took 40 minutes for the bacon to cook and get crispy

There were a lot of happy guys hanging around the plate of Brown Sugar Bacon Bundles 😘

Brown Sugar Bacon Bundles

These bacon wrapped tots are a WOW appetizer!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Servings 36


  • 36 Tater Tots thawed
  • 18 slices bacon cut in half*
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


  • Wrap each Tater tot in a piece of bacon and roll in brown sugar.
  • Place seam side down on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Bake at 400 for 30-40 minutes, until bacon is cooked through. Serve immediately. Makes 36 bundles


*cut the bacon in 1/3s if you prefer. I found 1/3 of a slice was not quite long enough and several of mine came undone.

Gourmet fare? Not so much.  Popular? Definitely.  Easy as Pie? Yep!

Thanks to Damn Delicious and anyone else who has posted a similar recipe


I will be sharing with the fabulous parties and blogs on my side bar and:

    Jenna, EVERYTHING is better with bacon! What I love about this recipe is you can pull out half a dozen tater tots at a time and put them in the oven for a little ‘oh no you didn’t’ satisfaction! Sending you my Sugar Bowl condolences this morning 🙂

  4. I have 3 sons who would love this guilty recipe! Happy New Year!
