I just made this for a picnic...it was AWESOME! I added sautéed onion (mixed it with he bacon). It was served in a chafing dish/sterno rack. Stayed well for the hours it was out (kept hot on the rack, no food poisoning for us!) Will definitely make this again!
Nice, easy and tasty side dish. I skipped the chives because the kids don't like them and my hubby can't eat them. Great way to spice up tater tots!
What a great recipe! My husband isn't too keen on potatoes however he likes tater tots. But I can't serve them too often because they get boring. So this is a wonderful alternative to plain tots! Instead of serving the sour cream on the side I mixed it, some of the bacon, some of the cheese, and the chives with the tots and then baked it all, putting the rest of the bacon and cheese on top at the end. Everyone LOVED it! I make this quite often now!
Good tater tot recipe. It was so simple and quick and didn't need alot of prep. I did sprinkle some seasoned salt over tots before adding the cheese and bacon. We really liked them and will make numerous times again. Thank you for sharing.
I just found this recipe while looking around on zaar trying to feed a pregnancy craving for... I didn't even know what. I ran to the kitchen and made it, and I'm eating it now. Mmmm! I made just enough for me (guessed on the portions), didn't have any sour cream or chives, added a little chopped onion and garlic salt. So simple, but so good! Thanks!
Really yummy! When I put 16 ounces of tater tots in my 13x9 pan, they were swimming around. So I baked the other 16 ounces (for 32 ounces total) and put them in too. I used the same amounts of everything else. I didn't double. Like a couple of other posters, I mixed the sour cream into the tater tots before I baked the whole thing. YUM! I liked it that way.
Potatoes, bacon, and cheese - what's not to like? Disappeared quickly at my house. I used less cheese and a little more bacon. Like chef#777092 I opted to mix the sour cream with the tater tots before adding the bacon and cheese. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.
Great dish! Kids loved it, my husband thought it was a winner! Thanks so much for this quick, easy and tasty side dish. We will definitely use this one again and again.
I loved this! The directions do need to be a little bit more specific. At first I couldn't figure out if the sour cream was just a dipping sauce or was to be included before baking. I deducted that the recipe wouldn't have called for 8 oz. if it weren't meant to be mixed in. So, I gently tossed the tots in with the sour cream before topping with shredded cheese. Next time I am going to add sauteed onions to the mix. I used this for a brunch this morning and it was a great departure from hash browns or hash brown casserole.
What a great side dish!! I did try to make it a bit healthier by using turkey bacon and I cut the cheese down to 1 cup and used about 1 tbs/serving of sour cream This is such an easy and cheap side dish. I made this with a meatloaf and salad. Thanks so much for posting, I will definitely come back to this recipe.
