Bacon Tater Tot Breakfast Boiled Egg. What if I said that you can make an entire breakfast inside a hard boiled egg? What if I told you how to do it? 🍳🐖 Recipe Below 💥💥💥💥💥 Step 1 Wrap tater tots in bacon strips, put a toothpick through the tot and the bacon making it secure. Step 2 Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 385 degrees F. Step 3 Using a small ramekin or any other bowl like apparatus, put plastic wrap inside of it creating a plastic cup. Step 4 Crack and egg inside the hole. Remove the toothpick from the bacon tater tot and add it to the bowl pressing it into the yolk until the yolk breaks around the tater tot. Step 5 Bring all the sides of the plastic wrap together and pinch it closed creating a balloon like shape. Tie it closed with rope. Step 6 Bring a pot of water to a boil and drop the sealed breakfast balloons inside the water for 7 minutes. Step 7 Take them out and put them in a cold water bat for 1 minute. Step 8 Unwrap the plastic and enjoy.
