Tater Tot Waffle Jalapeño and Bacon Grilled Cheese: Savory Sweet and Satsifying

This recipe takes a grilled cheese sandwich to a whole new level. Instead of bread, you have crispy tater tots cooked in a waffle iron. Then sandwiched in between the tater tots is cheddar cheese, crispy bacon and spicy jalapeños.

Tater Tot Waffle Jalapeño and Bacon Grilled Cheese: Savory Sweet and Satsifying


Tater Tot Waffle Jalapeño and Bacon Grilled Cheese
Ingredients:
2 pounds (32 ounces) tater tots, thawed
4 slices turkey bacon
1 large jalapeño, seeded and diced
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:
Preheat the waffle iron to the highest heat setting.

Line up half of the tater tots on the preheated waffle iron. Make sure they are touching and do not be afraid to crown them in. Close the waffle iron and cook for 8-15 minutes, or until the tater tots are crispy and golden brown. Transfer the waffle to a wire rack and repeat with the remaining tater tots.

While the tater tots are cooking, cook the bacon in a large skillet, over medium high heat, until crispy. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate and cook the jalapeños in the bacon grease until tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer the jalapeños to the plate with the bacon. 

When the second tater tot waffle is done cooking, do not remove it from the waffle iron. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the tater tots, then crumble the bacon on top and sprinkle the jalapeños over top as well. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the bacon and jalapeños. Carefully place the first tater tot waffle on top and close the waffle iron. Cook for 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Carefully remove the sandwich to a cutting board and cut into 4 pieces.

Enjoy!!!
