Spuds in a Blanket…Tailgate time!

Football is here!  Can I get a woop woop???!!!!   Who are you pulling for today?  Will you be channel hopping like my hubby does?   

This is a recipe that will be a great football-watching recipe and everyone who loves bacon (yes, Sarah, I have got to make you some!) or Tater Tots are going to love this recipe!   Make some, and see how fast they disappear.

Spuds in a Blanket

1/4 cup ketchup

2 Tbsp barbecue sauce (your favorite brand)

2 tsp firmly packed dark brown sugar (lt brown will work fine if that’s what you have)

12 slices bacon

48 extra-crispy tater tots (Ore-Ida Extra Crispy Tater Tots are great)

1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. (makes clean up easier).  Place a rack (like a cooling rack) on top of the foil-lined sheet.

2.  In a small bowl, mix the ketchup, barbecue sauce, and brown sugar together.  Brush both sides of bacon with ketchup mixture.  Cut each slice of bacon in half crosswise and then in half lengthwise to make 4 pieces.  Wrap each prepared piece of bacon around a tater tot, and place, seam side down, on rack.  Brush tops of prepared tater tots with any remaining ketchup mixture.  Bake for 30 minutes, or until bacon is crisp.  

Makes 4 dozen.

Enjoy and let’s hear you rooting for your favorite team today!

Roll Tide and Go Trojans AND Go Hawks!!
