TOTAL TIME:
PREP:
LEVEL: EASY
YIELD: 4–5 SERVINGS

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 (32-oz.) package tater tots
  • 8 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1/4 c. Chopped chives
  • 1 container sour cream
CHEESE SAUCE
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1 c. whole milk
  • 1 2/3 c. sharp Cheddar
  • 1/4 tsp. chili powder

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat the grill to medium.
  2. Spray two disposable pie plates with cooking spray and spread the tater tots in a single layer in each. Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring regularly. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, fry the bacon in a saute pan over medium heat and place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess grease.
  4. Make the cheese sauce: In a deep-walled sauté pan, melt butter over medium heat. Sprinkle in flour, whisking to combine to create a slurry. Gradually pour in milk, whisking the entire time, to form a thin sauce. Gradually stir in cheddar cheese and chili powder, mixing until everything has combined. Remove sauce from heat.
  5. Layer tater tots into small bowls or wide-mouthed mason jars. Top with cheese sauce, bacon, sour cream, and chives. Repeat layers until you’ve reached the top of the containers.
