Bacon Wrapped Broccoli tots are a fun, healthier twist on tater tots. Wrapping the tots in bacon and covering them in maple and brown sugar glaze, makes for a delicious and easy party appetizer!

We love Bacon on this blog and especially quick and easy appetizers in which bacon is front and center. We have Bacon Wrapped Shrimp in a brown sugar glaze, these are always a hit.

As we mentioned, veggie tots are a great way to make eating veggies fun and delicious. The vegetable pieces are very small, making them more palatable for kids. We have seen several varieties of veggie tots available in grocery stores. With recipes available online, another option is to make them yourself.
