Tater Tot Waffle Cheese and Bacon Sandwich

I had all the kids in the family over so I made sure to have an abundance of their favorite side, tater tots! I never eat them myself, so having a large amount of them left over was a little annoying. I decided to press them in my waffle iron and make grilled cheese and bacon sandwiches. These three ingredient treats are super yummy and absolutely adult-approved!

Yield: 1 huge sandwich that should probably be shared ;)

Ingredients:

Steps:

  1. Preheat your waffle iron on high. Cut your bacon to fit in the sandwich. If you're using a big round Belgian press, you probably don't need to cut much. Cook them in a pan on both sides until crisp.
  2. Drain bacon and set aside.
  3. Place the thawed tater tots very close together in an even layer on the waffle iron. Close the lid and press it down. Cook until the tater tot waffle is crisp, about 5 minutes.

  5. My waffle maker seems to heat more on one side, so I like to flip them over and cook another few minutes to ensure they're super crisp.
  6. On one of the waffles, add half the cheddar cheese.

  8. Place cooked bacon on top of cheese.
  9. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

  11. Place the other waffle on top and press down the top of the iron. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Serve!

This is addicting. I cook it for the 2 of us in the George Foreman. I stopped putting the bacon on it and just put fried egg and cheese. We have it often and so far, no weight gain. Great way to start the day. You have my vote.

Oh my goodness. Since I still have SO many tots left, I'm doing it your way tomorrow. Love eggs! Thanks so much!

Well, I am not a big fan of tater tots either but kids love em so they are always on hand.
I think both ways sound great so this is really 2 in 1.
thanks to both,
Betty

It's weird, isn't it, how blah they are on their own. But there's something about them when they mash together in the waffle press then crisp up-- so good!

I have never seen "tater-tots", but I like the hash-brown patties from Costco, actually intended for restaurants, and cheaper than raw potatoes. They work quite well with Attosa's recipe. Go easy on the cheese, though, so that it does not leak out the sides and gum up the works!
Have FUN!
