Back to school has been stressful. Getting back into a routine has been harder than I thought it would be. Enter, Loaded Bacon and Cheese Fries. I’m not gonna lie, I totally wanted something indulgent after the week I had. Don’t judge.
I’m not sure why, but I have always found potato dishes to be a source of comfort food to me. Mashed potatoes with gravy? Yes, please! Potato chips?! I’ll take those too! Hashbrown Casserole? I might need two spoons of that. Baked Potatoes? Don’t forget the butter, sour cream and chives! Maybe it comes from having so many potato dishes as a kid? I’m really not sure.
One thing is for certain … these Loaded Bacon and Cheese Fries kinda made my day. They were easy and super delish. Thanks to having some help eating them, I even saved a few calories! 😉
Loaded Bacon and Cheese Fries
Yield: 4-6 servings
1 bag (32 oz) frozen french fries
cheese sauce (recipe below)
½ lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 green onions, chopped
¼ cup sour cream
For the cheese sauce:
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour
1 cup milk
1½ cups (6 oz.) Cheddar cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste
Bake the french fries according to package directions.
Meanwhile, prepare the cheese sauce. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour. Cook and continue to whisk for a minute. Slowly add the milk. Continue to cook and stir until the mixture thickens slightly – about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in cheese until completely melted and thoroughly combined. Season with salt and pepper.
To assemble the Loaded Bacon and Cheese Fries: After the fries come out of the oven, immediately drizzle with cheese sauce. Sprinkle with bacon. Drizzle with sour cream. Sprinkle with green onions. Serve immediately!
