Just in time for the big game… Kim’s Hot Tot Kabobs!

Property Geek Kim isn’t a native Minnesotan. But she’s been in the Twin Cities long enough to have learned a couple of things:

  1. Minnesotans love their tater tots, and…
  2. They’ll try just about anything on a stick.

So, in honor of the big game, she’s decided to share a recipe for one of her family’s new favorites:

Hot Tot Kabobs

These taters on a stick are super quick to make and will easily feed a crowd. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Frozen Tater Tots
  • Finely Shredded Cheddar or Colby Jack Cheese
  • Bacon Bits or several strips of cooked Bacon (chopped into bits)
  • Sour Cream
  • Chives
  • Skewers

Cook the tater tots according to package directions. Once done, let them cool for a few minutes until you can touch them.

Thread tater tots onto skewers and place onto a cookie sheet.








Top the tater kabobs with bacon bits.








Sprinkle cheese over the tots.








Bake for another 5-10 minutes until cheese melts.

Transfer to a serving platter & garnish with sour cream and chives.










These Hot Tot Kabobs will be a hit just the way they are, but if you want to mix it up a bit, try the following variations:

  • Use Mexican cheese, chopped jalapenos and serve with salsa for dipping.
  • Sprinkle dry ranch seasoning over tots when cooking and serve with ranch dressing.
  • For a “healthier” slant, sprinkle chopped cooked broccoli over the tots before you add the cheese.
  • Try adding a little chili, then cheese and serve with sour cream for dipping.


We can’t promise your team will win on Sunday, but we CAN promise you’ll end up with a platter that looks like this…








What’s your favorite snack to take to a game watch party?
