Sweet and Spicy Bacon Bombs, tater tots and pepper jack cheese wrapped in bacon and baked to golden brown!
Craving something decadent? Something salty, sweet and a touch spicy?? Well you have come to the right blog, my friends! Today’s recipe is over the top deliciousness and not for the faint of heart. I say if you want to splurge, then go all out!
One of my biggest treats I go for when I want something savory is BACON. And, I’m pretty sure I’m not alone.
As I have said many times before, Wright® Brand Bacon and I have been BFF’s for some time now. I love it. The Applewood Smoked flavor is my personal favorite but there are lots more like Hickory Smoked, Bourbon Barrel Smoked, Smoked Brown Sugar and Oak Barrel Smoked.
I picked up a package at Publix a few days ago, it is located in the refrigerated section by all the breakfast meats. I always keep Wright Brand Bacon in the fridge or freezer in case of emergencies. A bacon emergency. Yes, that exsists.
These bacon bombs are just oozing with everything you crave!
- 20 tater tots
- 10 slices Applewood Smoked Wright Brand Bacon, cut in half
- 20 pieces pepper jack cheese, thinly sliced to the size of a tater tot
- ½ Cup light brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon chipotle powder
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine brown sugar and chipotle powder on a small plate. Roll tater tot with a piece of the cheese loosely with bacon. Roll entire thing in the brown sugar mixture.
- Place on a sheet tray about 1 inch apart. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown.
Recipe is adapted from Dinner Then Dessert.
Here is a quick video tutorial on how to wrap them:
Make sure they are loosely rolled in the bacon. The bacon will shrink during cooking and if they are too tightly wrapped they will smush the tots!
They have just a touch of spice but if you like extra spice, just amp up the amount of chipotle powder.
What I really love about Wright Brand Bacon is that it’s not just for breakfast. You can use it for literally every meal. I’m appetizer obsessed so I immediately think of that first. But, these bacon bombs would be great at parties, lunch or even dinner. Heck, there is basically a hash brown inside so yes, breakfast too!
I really believe Wright Brand Bacon is delicious and I think you should try it out for yourself. I even got my parents convinced! All the flavors are thick sliced, high-quality with the best cuts of premium meat. Wright Brand Bacon is masterfully crafted for a richer bacon experience being hand-selected, hand-trimmed and naturally smoked with wood chips.
