  • 2 pounds tater tots thawed completely
  • 1 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 green onions sliced
  • 8 slices cooked bacon crumbled


  • Preheat oven to 400 F..
  • Spray two large baking sheets with non-stick spray (I found that a Silpat mat works best)
  • Use the back of a large spoon to flatten the tots. Don't press too hard if they don't flatten immediately.
  • Place into the oven for 10 minutes. Check if any of the tots need a bit more flattening.
  • Continue baking for another 10 minutes or until the tots are turning golden brown.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and continue baking until crispy.
  • Remove from the oven.
  • Transfer to a platter and drizzle with the sour cream and sprinkle with the green onions and bacon.
