If ever there were a classic combo it’s tator tots and bacon. Little crispy baked potato tots can not be resisted! Bacon Wrapped Tots with Homemade Ranch Dressing are a game changer in this house. Add some fresh, homemade ranch dressing to dip these crunchy nibbles in and you are set for any party or game day snack.
Beyond easy to make these ridiculously tasty bites of crispy, golden brown tator tots are wrapped with bacon flavor of choice and baked to a crunchy finish. While I love a maple or pepper bacon (shout out to Loveless Cafe!) a cajun spiced works well here, too.
What better way to serve it up than with some of my fresh, Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. Made with buttermilk, fresh herbs, lemon and some pantry items, this is way better than store bought ranch dressing. I’ve made it now with sour cream and Greek yogurt and can’t decide which version I like better… you decide.
It doesn’t get any easier. Now wrap that bacon around each tot and bake. It’s as easy as that. Enjoy!
