In today’s recipe, I’m making Bacon & Cheddar Chese Wrapped Tater Tots with a Pepper Jelly Glaze in the Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. This is a recipe that Donna has made in the oven a few times, but today we will cook it up in Char-Broil's Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer.

Bacon and Cheese Tater Tots on Big Easy Oil Less Fryer


  • Tater tots
  • Thin bacon slices; 1 slice per 3 tater tots
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 jar Minorcan Datil Pepper jelly
  • Bad Byron’s Butt Rub seasoning

Bad Byron's Butt Rub Seasoning


  1. Slice the bacon strips into thirds.
  2. Slice cheddar cheese into pieces which are about the length of the tater tots.
  3. Take a tot and lay it on one piece of the bacon, then add a piece of cheese and roll it up.
  4. Sprinkle each tater tot with the Butt Rub seasoning.
  5. Set the Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer to it’s highest heat setting. If you are cooking in the oven, set it to 400 degrees.
  6. Place the tots in the Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer or oven until the bacon is crisp, about 20 minutes.
  7. Heat the pepper jelly until it melts.
  8. After approximately 15 minutes remove the tots from the cooker and glaze each tot with the melted pepper jelly.
