  • grill
  • wooden skewers


  • 8 slices bacon
  • 64 frozen tater tots
  • 1 tsp. BBQ seasoning


  • Place wooden skewers in a bath of water to soak. This helps prevent them from burning on the grill later.
  • Remove the tater tots from the freezer and spread in a single layer on a plate to begin thawing for about 20 minutes.
  • Start your grill and set it for about 400°
  • Once the tater tots have thawed just enough, begin threading your skewers. Weave 1 piece of bacon and 8 tater tots, alternating layers, for each skewer.
  • Sprinkle your favorite BBQ rub or seasoning on all sides of the skewers.
  • Transfer the skewers to your hot grill and leave them be for about 20 minutes. Do not turn them (the tater tots may fall apart) during the cook.
  • Once the bacon and tater tots have crisped up to your liking, remove them from the grill and serve.



When placing the skewers on your grill, try to leave space in between and avoid overcrowding or the tops will take longer to cook than the bottom.
