MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 30, 2013

I modified the recipe the first time I made this and it was a hit. First, instead of pan frying the bacon, I cut cut the bacon strip in half and cooked them in the microwave for half the time usually required to cook bacon thoroughly. Second, I had no problem putting a round, not flat, toothpick into a frozen tater tot.....the goal is NOT to push the toothpick through the tater tot, one only needs to sightly pierce it to hold the bacon in place. Last...I baked them for 20 minutes instead of the recommended 12-15 minutes.

MY REVIEW

Wish I had read the previous review before making these. While the flavor was good, the process was flawed. As the previous reviewer said, you cannot put a toothpick in a frozen tater tot. And frozen tater tots don't bake at 400 for 12-15 min. I had to bake for about 10 extra minutes and by then the bacon was burned, and the tots were soggy and just warm. I too had issue with the bacon falling apart so I just laid it on top of the tots to bake. I also lined my baking sheet with non-stick foil and that was the best thing I did...made clean up a breeze with the sticky mess. One more thing, I had way too much maple syrup/pepper flakes left over, could have done with only 1/4 cup of syrup. Not sure I would make this again. Too much trouble.
