Bacon Jalapeno Tots on the Char-Broil Big Easy
The key to cooking bacon-wrapped tater tots on the Char-Broil Big Easy is to cook them until they just start to char. They won’t be super crispy yet. That happens after you take them out of the cooker and they cool. The bacon will crisp up as it sits.

For the wrapped tots 1 pound sliced bacon cut in half (you may not use all of the bacon) 24 frozen tater tots thawed 3 medium jalapenos stems and seeds removed, then cut into 24 small strips
For the cheese sauce
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Add the salt, pepper and flour and whisk for 1 minute.
Slowly whisk in the milk.
Bring mixture to a very low boil. Add the cheese and stir.
Reduce the heat and peep warm until ready to use.
For the wrapped tots
Fire up your Big Easy.
Wrap a strip of jalapeno and a tot with a piece of bacon.
Place seam-side down into the Big Easy basket. Do not let the tots touch or the bacon will not cook evenly.
After all of the tots are wrapped, lower the basket into your Big Easy and cook for 20 minutes or until the bacon just starts to char.
Remove and let cool slightly before serving with the warm cheese sauce for dipping.
