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! 😉
- 1 bag (32 oz) frozen french fries
- cheese sauce (recipe below)
- 1/2 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 4 green onions, chopped

For the cheese sauce
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 2 tbsp. flour

- 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.
