Ingredients

  • 2 lbs seasoned regular cut fries
  • 2 cups or 8 oz freshly shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup green onions sliced
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits or cooked bacon
  • 1 small jalapeño sliced thin
  • Sour cream optional

Instructions

  • Bake your French fries according to package directions.
  • Once baked transfer to a 9"-10" cast iron skillet and top with shredded cheese.
  • Pop back in oven until cheese is melted.
  • Remove and top with green onions, jalapeños and a dollop of sour cream if desired.

Notes

  1. You can use any fries that you like, we use seasoned regular cut fries.
  2. As noted above there are so many different topping options out there, this is just a base recipe that we love.
  3. Use freshly shredded cheese from the block, it melts easier than packaged cheese which has more preservatives in it.
  4. You can keep your fries on the baking pan you do not need to transfer to a cast iron or oven proof skillet, we do it because it's prettier and you get more cheese centered around your fries.
  5. We make it quicker by using real bacon bits, you can use cooked bacon if you would like as well.
