It's always appetizer time and these Cheesy Barbeque and Bacon Totchos are perfect for any gathering.
Another true story, I never heard of tator tots when I lived on the east coast. But that all changed when we moved to the midwest 25 years ago and went to our first pot luck. Everyone was talking about tator tot hot dishes. Two things to note here - it was my first time seeing tots and then was thinking what is a hot dish? Growing up out east, we made casseroles. Different terminology but the same idea.
I have to admit I'm not a fan of any tator tot hot dish I've seen but am totally down with these totchos. About a year ago we went out with some friends to a local watering hole and decided to just munch on appetizers instead of dinners. We each picked a couple of our favorites. When I heard our friend order these, I had no idea what to expect but my first bite started a food love affair.
What's not to love with gooey cheese, crispy bacon, tangy barbeque sauce and little pillows of tasty potatoes sprinkled with some green onions. Trust me when I say you are gonna love these! They also go great with a tasty beverage! If you are looking for other ways to make unique nachos, be sure to check out my friend Lisa's Irish Nachos - they are deelish.
Yum! What other combinations can you come up with?
