Ingredients for the recipe for Tater Tot Mini Cheeseburger Bites:

  1. Twenty-four Tater Tots, defrosted to room temperature
  2. Half a pound of ground beef
  3. To taste, add salt and pepper.
  4. Half a teaspoon of powdered onion
  5. half a teaspoon of powdered garlic
  6. Cut 12 cheddar cheese slices into quarters, so you have 48 little squares.
  7. Twenty-four little pickle slices
  8. Mustard with ketchup, to serve


1.Preheat Your Air fryer or oven

If you would rather start them in the oven, prepare your oven to 425°F (220°C); if you’re going directly to the air fryer, warm your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
2.Get the Tater Tots ready:
Each tater tot should be gently flattened to create a little burger basis. You may achieve this by applying pressure to them using a tiny glass or the back of a spoon. If using an oven, place them in a little muffin tray; if using an air fryer, place them straight in the basket.

3.Cook the Beef:

The ground beef should be cooked in a pan over medium heat. While cooking, season with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. As the meat cooks, take careful to split it up into little bits that are appropriate for the little nibbles.
4.Assemble the Bites:

Each flattened tater tot should have a little quantity of cooked ground beef spooned on top.

5.Bake or Air Fry:

Place a quarter piece of cheddar cheese on top of each.
Bake or Air fry: If you’re using an oven, put the mini muffin tray in and bake for about ten minutes, or until the tater tots are crispy and the cheese has melted.
Should you want to use an air fryer, put the tater tot bases into the basket and cook for approximately 6 to 8 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

6.Garnish and Serve:

Take the cheeseburger bits out of the air fryer or oven.
Add a little pickle slice on the top of each mouthful.
Accompany with mustard and ketchup for dipping.

Tips for Perfect Mini Bites:

Defrost Tater Tots: To ensure that you can easily flatten the tater tots without breaking them, make sure they are well thawed.
Cheese Selections: Try a variety of cheeses for distinct flavours, such mozzarella for a softer taste or pepper jack for a burst of heat.
Serving Tip: For an eye-catching and entertaining presentation, arrange the food on a tray and insert a toothpick into each mouthful.
Tater Tot Mini Cheeseburger Bites are a delightful bite-sized snack that combines traditional flavours and is guaranteed to be a success at any event. Have fun creating this savoury and entertaining dessert!
