It takes less than 5 minutes of extra preparation time to turn basic tater tots into these Bacon Ranch Tater Tots. You just need to melt some butter and whisk in some crushed garlic, ranch seasoning, garlic, and parmesan. When you whisk it all together it takes on a thick paste-like consistency. Then you stir in the frozen tater tots, and get them evenly coated in the mixture. Once you spread the tots out on a parchment-lined baking sheet you sprinkle the chopped bacon over the top.

You should definitely use parchment paper to line the baking sheet. It helps the tots to cook more evenly and it prevents the bacon ranch topping from getting overcooked.
