How to Make Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Cups

This recipe is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. Spray a mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place two frozen tater tots in each muffin cup. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes.

While the tater tots are cooking, prepare the filling. In a large scale, cook ground beef until no longer pink. Drain excess grease. Add ketchup, mustard, Montreal steak seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce to the skillet. Cook for a few minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in cooked chopped bacon and shredded cheddar cheese.

Remove tater tots from the oven. Using a tart tamper tool, press potatoes into the muffin cups. Spoon the cheeseburger filling into the potato cups. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, until the tater tots are a deep golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool in the muffin tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with parsley or green onions.
