These are a GAME Changer!

game-day--appetizers

These family favorites are so simple, it seems uncanny to write them as a recipe…
but they are our favorites, and I am amazed at how much we love them again, and again. The Bacon Tater Tots are perfect to take to any  SUPER BOWL PARTY.
When  you take them out of the oven, fill a crock pot and just plug it in when you arrive. They will keep nice and warm as the game plays on.
The aromatic basil, combined with the Mozzarella and fresh tomatoes,
make this simple combo irresistible!

Bacon Tater Tots
1 lb. bacon (14 slices)
42 frozen Tater Tots™

Preheat oven to 425°. Cut cold bacon in thirds. Wrap a piece of bacon around a frozen Tater Tot™.
Secure bacon with toothpick if desired. Spread on a large jelly roll pan. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes
or until bacon is crisp. Serve immediately.

Basil Tomato Bites
1 lb. mozzarella cheese, block
12 oz. fresh basil leaves
2 c. cherry tomatoes
(1 c. = 25 tomatoes)
50 toothpicks

Create mozzarella balls by using a melon baller to cut cheese balls. On toothpicks start
building Basil Tomato Bites with basil. Add mozzarella ball and tomato (as pictured).
