Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 8 – 10
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Bake potatoes according to package instructions, about 20 minutes.
While tater tots are baking, cook your bacon until crisp. Remove crispy bacon from pan and set aside on paper towels to drain excess grease. Once cooled, chop up.
In a blender, mix together “Ricotta Ranch Sauce” ingredients and blend until smooth.
Once tots are done cooking, remove from oven (but keep the oven on) and arrange tater tots on the sheet tray, cast iron pan, casserole, or oven-safe serving platter. Spoon Ricotta Ranch Sauce on top, sprinkle with bacon and the remaining 1 cup Frigo® Whole Milk Mozzarella Cheese, then pop back in the oven for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and garnish with 1 cup of fresh chives or green onion tops.
Serve as an appetizer or side and dig in!
Rad Idea: When entertaining, make a double batch of Ricotta Ranch Sauce to serve as a dip for Tot’chos, chips, or fresh cut veggies.
