James Coney Island Baked Tots

vegetable oil for frying
8 ounces frozen Tater tots
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons crumbled cooked bacon
1 tablespoon sour cream
2 teaspoon sliced green onions

Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a small casserole dish with cooking spray.
Pour the oil into a deep fryer or saucepan to a depth of 3 to 4 inches, and heat the oil to 350°F.
Cook half of the Tater tots in the hot oil until golden brown; this should take 2 to 4 minutes.
Once the first bath is finished, drain on paper towels and then cook the remaining potatoes.
Place in a prepared casserole dish and sprinkle the cheese and bacon over them.
Heat in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese begins to melt.
Remove from oven and top with sour green and onions.
