Maple Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

This recipe was created by Diane Grogan (the better half of the championship BBQ Team "Jus' Fer Fun") for the 2008 Florida Eggfest in Ocala, Florida . Diane wanted something quick, easy and very tasty. She hit on all counts as my family and guests love the Maple Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots.

Ingredients:
Tater tots
Maple Bacon (not thick cut)
Dizzy Pig' s Shakin' the Tree
Wooden Toothpicks

Food Preparation:
Let tater tots thaw out for approximately 30 minutes until a toothpick can easily be passed through the tot. Do not let the tots sit out too long as they will crumble when trying to stick the toothpick in them.

Cut a piece of the Maple bacon into 3 equal strips. Wrap 1 piece of cut maple bacon around a tot and skewer with the toothpick.

Sprinkle Dizzy Pig's Shakin' the Tree over the wrapped tots. Wrap as many tots as you will need to feed your group.

Twenty to thirty tots is usually enough for 2 people and this will use approximately 1/2 pound of bacon.

Grill Preparation:

I cook the tots on a Big Green Egg. Cook the tots indirect using a plate setter at 350 degrees for 40 - 45 minutes or until the bacon is done.

Turn the tots after 30 minutes to get both sides of the bacon crisp. Sprinkle a little more Shakin' the Tree when you turn the tots.

When the maple bacon tots are done, remove from the grill and carefully remove the toothpicks. Place the cooked tots on a plate and let them sit for a few minutes so the bacon firms up.

Eat & enjoy...your guests will love them

Cooking tip:
I cook these a lot when cooking chicken wings. I put the maple bacon wrapped tots above the wings and the maple bacon drips on the wings. It just enhances the flavor of the wings.
