yields 24 appetizers

24 tater tots, partially defrosted (about 15 minutes at room temperature)
12 strips of center-cut bacon, cut in half
24 small chunks of sharp cheddar cheese (1/2-inch x 1/4-inch)
Tabasco sauce

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray. Lay a piece of bacon on a flat surface. Place a tater tot on top. Using a sharp knife, gently cut a slit down the center of the tater tot. Wiggle a piece of cheese into the slit. Sprinkle Tabasco sauce on top. Wrap bacon tightly around the stuffed tater tot and secure with a toothpick. Bake 15 minutes, or until they appear to be cooked through and the bacon is crispy. Serve immediately.
