Loaded Tots With Coca-Cola Glazed Bacon
Food & Drink
1 (12 oz.) can regular Coca-Cola (see note)
¼ cup brown sugar
½ pound thick-cut bacon (~8 slices)
For the Queso
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
½ tsp cumin
1 cup milk
1 cup Monterey jack cheese, shredded
1 cup mild cheddar cheese, shredded
½ cup sour cream
For the Loaded Tots
2 (28-oz.) packages tater tots
¼ cup pickled jalapenos
1 cup Mexican-blend cheese, shredded
¼ cup green onions, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Place the Coca-Cola in small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until liquid reduces to ~1/3 cup. Remove from heat and stir brown sugar into the reduced Coca –Cola. Set aside. (Note: This will take ~15-20 minutes.)
Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place bacon in 1 layer on foil. Bake for 15 minutes, or until bacon just begins to turn brown.
Remove pan from oven and carefully drain grease. Brush the bacon slices with the reduced Coca-Cola.
Return bacon to oven and bake for 3 minutes.
Remove pan and brush bacon again with the reduced Coca-Cola.
Return bacon to oven and bake for 3-5 more minutes, or until bacon is fully cooked.
Brush bacon once again with the reduced Coca-Cola. Transfer bacon from pan to a plate; set aside until bacon has cooled.
Cut bacon into small pieces; set aside.
Using a medium sauté pan, add butter and place over medium-low heat.
Once butter has melted, add flour and cumin. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add milk, shredded Monterey Jack and shredded cheddar. Continue cooking for 4-5 more minutes, or until mixture thickens and cheese is fully melted.
Remove mixture from heat and stir in sour cream.
Bake tater tots according to package directions.
Place tater tots on a large plate and top with pickled jalapenos, shredded cheese and green onions. Drizzle Queso over the top of the tater tops. Sprinkle with crumbled Coca-Cola Glazed Bacon.
