Tips, Tricks, and FAQs

  • Try using Pepper Jack cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, Colby Jack, or your favorite blend in place of the cheddar cheese.
  • If you prefer to fry up a few slices of crispy bacon to crumble over the tater tots, go for it.
  • Other toppings you may enjoy: diced jalapenos, diced ham, and diced onion.
  • Replace the bacon with cooked ground sausage.
  • Dipping sauces like ranch dip or ranch dressing are great with this appetizer.
  • Ketchup, BBQ sauce, and honey mustard are also yummy dipping sauces.
  • I do not recommend making the Loaded Tater Tots ahead of time, as they are best eaten warm.
