Well the big game is upon us and I can’t believe my team actually made it to the Super Bowl!!  Go BRONCOS!!  I have been a Bronco fan since I started watching football as a teenager. I’m the only one that really likes football, so I don’t watch it too often, but you better believe I will be watching this one!

I have the ULTIMATE appetizer for your game day party.  Barbecue Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots are so simple and so easy to make and I guarantee they will be the first to disappear!

I took my favorite Petit Jean Bacon and baked it just until it was cooked through but not yet crunchy.  I brushed it with sweet barbecue sauce and popped it back in the oven for a minute.  Then I wrapped this wonderfully sweet bacon around a crunchy tater tot.  Amazing!

I’m telling you, these little bites will knock your socks off!  One of our favorite appetizers has always been Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts but I think they may have been replaced with these tater tots.  They are that good.
