Tater tots are shaped like a football, then loaded up with cheddar cheese, crunchy bacon and sour cream. What football fan wouldn't be happy with these?

Servings: 6 servings
  • 1/2 bag tater tots or tater coins
  • 1 c. sharp cheddar, shredded
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  1. Preheat oven to 425.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. 

  2. Lay tater tots out in the shape of a football. This was easiest to do when I made the outline first and then filled in the middle, adjusting as I filled. 

  3. Bake tots for 15 minutes.

  4. Sprinkle  1/2 c. shredded cheese over hot tater tots, then top with bacon. Top with remaining cheese (to hold bacon on).  Bake for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and gooey.  

  5. Put 1/4 c. sour cream in a ziploc bag and cut off the corner. Draw a line down the middle of the football and strings off of either side of the line (see picture). 

  6. Place remaining sour cream in a dipping container to serve alongside tater tot football. 

Recipe Notes
  • I used tater coins instead of tots. Truthfully, I bought the 'wrong' bag, but it turned out to be so much easier to arrange them without anything rolling around.
