Components for Cheese Fries

French Fries – To make cheese fries you’ll want fries in fact! You may make them from scratch (examine the notes of the recipe) or use frozen fries for a sooner snack.

We discover thicker steak fries, crinkle fries, and even wedges work effectively and maintain as much as the toppings. Make them within the air fryer or strive oven baked fries. Season them with kosher salt & pepper.

Cheese – We select shredded cheese over cheese sauce as a result of we discover the fries don’t get soggy this manner.

Shredded cheddar or a shredded cheddar mozzarella cheese mix is nice on fries. For many recipes, I like to recommend that you just shred your personal cheese however that is one place (together with nachos) the place the bagged shredded cheeses work effectively!

Bacon – Every little thing is healthier with bacon, together with cheese fries! If you wish to fry up some bacon and crumble it on high, that works effectively however actual bacon bits (or precooked) works simply as effectively too!

Different Toppings – Inexperienced onions are a favourite to sprinkle on cheese fries (paying homage to potato skins). Make these into loaded cheese fries by including any of the next to fit your tastes:

  • Floor beef, browned sausage, or taco meat.
  • Brown gravy (belief me, it makes them AMAZING), a take from our fave poutine recipe.
  • Diced tomatoes, sliced jalapenos, avocado, burger sauce, or perhaps a large scoop of leftover chili.
  • Bitter cream or home made ranch for dipping.

Feeling Saucy?

Whereas we want to make these with shredded cheese to maintain the fries extra crisp, you should use a cheese sauce as an alternative.

Whisk collectively a fast homemade cheese sauce with shredded cheeses. For a shortcut, use a premade nacho cheese sauce from the shop and drizzle it overtop.

For those who’re feeling further saucy, warmth up some brown gravy and pour it overtop. Sounds loopy but it surely’s SO GOOD!
