Bacon-Wrapped Tater Tots with Onion Dip

The perfect game day appetizer, these little bites deliver big flavor with very little work.


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 18 slices Applegate Naturals® Sunday Bacon® Brand
  • 36 tater tots, defrosted slightly


  1. To make the onion dip, heat the olive oil in a small skillet over moderate heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  2. Stir the cooled onion into the yogurt. Add the chives, onion powder and ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Stir well. Refrigerate until ready to use. (Dip can be made up to 3 days ahead.)
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Cut the bacon slices in half crosswise. Wrap each tater tot in a piece of bacon, securing with a toothpick; arrange on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake the tater tots until the bacon is crisp and browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and transfer the tater tots to a platter. Serve at once, with the onion dip on the side.
