Can I make loaded tater tot skewers ahead of time?
Of course! You can make the skewers ahead of time and reheat them when you’re ready to serve. Just make sure to store them in an airtight container in the fridge so they stay fresh. When you’re ready to reheat them, simply place the skewers on a baking sheet and bake them in the oven at 350°F for about 10-15 minutes, or until they’re heated through.
But let me tell you, there’s something special about eating a fresh, hot-out-of-the-oven loaded tater tot skewer. The cheese is gooey and melty, and the tots are perfectly crispy. So, if you have the time, I recommend making these skewers right before you’re ready to serve them.
What if I don’t have wooden skewers?
No problem! You can still make loaded tater tot skewers without skewers. Simply arrange the cooked tater tots on a platter or baking sheet, then sprinkle them with cheese, bacon, sour cream, and green onions. It won’t be quite as fun to eat as a skewer, but it’ll still be just as tasty!
But let me tell you a little story. One time, I made these skewers without skewers, and I arranged them on a platter in a fancy, artistic way. But as soon as I set the platter down on the table, my dog jumped up and grabbed a tot right off the platter! So, if you have any furry friends around, I recommend using skewers to keep your skewers safe.
Using Cheddar cheese melt
If you want to take your loaded tater tot skewers to the next level, try using cheddar cheese melt instead of regular shredded cheese. The cheddar cheese melt will make your skewers extra gooey and delicious.
Simply sprinkle the cheddar cheese melt over the cooked tater tots, then add the bacon, sour cream, and green onions as usual. Your taste buds will thank you! And don’t forget, you can always make these ahead of time and reheat them when you’re ready to serve.
You can always use ranch dressing as well.
Tots Makes a great appetizer
Loaded tater tot skewers are the perfect appetizer for any occasion. Not only are they delicious, but they’re also easy to make and a crowd-pleaser. Serve them at your next party, game day gathering, or even as an after-school snack.
Your guests will love the combination of crispy tater tots, gooey cheese, savory bacon, and fresh green onions. And with the option to use cheddar cheese melt, you can take this appetizer to the next level.
Other ingredients to add to Loaded tater tot skewers
- Bacon bits (Fan favorite)
- Little bit of Real bacon (for best results)
- Ravioli is a fun side dish
- Crispy Bacon
- Sprinkle Cheese
What type of bacon to use
For loaded tater tot skewers, I recommend using thick-cut bacon. The thickness helps it stay crispy and adds a nice texture to the skewers. You can also try using flavored bacon, like maple or applewood, for an extra burst of flavor. Just cook the bacon until it’s crispy, then crumble it up and sprinkle it over your loaded tater tots for a mouthwatering treat.
Can I use different types of cheese?
Absolutely! You can use any type of cheese you like to make loaded tater tot skewers. Cheddar cheese is a classic choice, but you can also try pepper jack, mozzarella, or even blue cheese if you’re feeling adventurous.
But let me tell you about the time I used blue cheese. I love blue cheese, so I thought it would be the perfect addition to my loaded tater tot skewers. But when I served them to my guests, some of them were a little hesitant to try them. Apparently, not everyone is a fan of blue cheese! So, if you’re serving these skewers to a crowd, it might be best to stick with a more universally-loved cheese like cheddar.
How do you keep tater tots warm for a party?
To keep tater tots warm for a party, you can use a slow cooker or warming tray. First, cook the tater tots according to your preferred method and place them in the slow cooker or on the warming tray.
Loaded tater tot skewers are a fun and tasty snack that can be easily customized with different types of cheese and bacon. Just make sure to use skewers if you have any furry friends around, and consider your guests’ preferences when choosing cheese.
With these tips in mind, you’ll be sure to have the Perfect game day appetizer. You will be the party host of the year with your snacks.
