Here's your hardware: 1 large bag of tater tots, a bottle of buffalo sauce, 1lb of bacon, a box of macaroni and cheese, and a bag of pork rinds.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and lay the bacon on a sheet pan, listen to it promote The Following, and then cook it it for 35-40mins, or until it's crispy.
While you're waiting, poke a small hole in the pork rinds and squeeze all of the air out...
... then crush the rinds into a powder. Pro Tip: Depending on what kind of guests you have, you can serve this just by itself.
Remove the bacon from pan, let cool, then chop it to tiny bits, as so many critics have with The Following.
You weren't going to throw that bacon fat away, were you?
Wipe the sheet pan down, then arrange the tots, following the bag's cooking instructions for "crispy".
Throw the cooked tots in a bowl where, much like Kyra Sedgwick, they'll be lonely without their bacon.
Drop in equal amounts of liquid bacon fat and buffalo sauce and then gently toss to coat with a spoon.
You will need this cheese packet. You can save the noodles for craft projects. No, Kraft projects!
Add cheese and about a third of the powdered pork rinds to the bowl, then toss 'em again.
Napkins and Lipitor are highly recommended. Speaking of which, don't forget to get your burger on at Edzo's.
