Bacon Cheddar Fries

easy to make and delicious bacon cheddar fries!

Since being pregnant I’ve had an obsession with loaded nachos and fries. Last month, while eating out somewhere (thanks to pregnancy brain I can’t remember where) my husband and I had bacon cheddar fries. They were loaded with cheese, bacon, and green onions and I could not get enough of them! After I inhaled the plate… (yes, I can admit I inhaled the plate of loaded fries) I proclaimed I would re-make these at home soon. As soon as a few of my favorite blog friends expressed interest in doing a “big game” appetizer blog hop I knew exactly what I was making… bacon cheddar fries!

Just like in the past with our progressive dinner parties we are hosting a “big game” appetizer party… we all are bringing some tasty game-day recipes to the world today! I love football and what better thing to pair with football (other than beer which I currently can not have) is food!

For my bacon cheddar fries recipe, I used Cabot Sharp Cheddar cheese and used a KitchenIQ™ hand grater to grate the block of cheese. I can’t say enough good things about both Cabot Cheese and KitchenIQ™! Both have stellar products that help me make delicious food. So if you’re looking for an easy recipe to whip up during the “big game” you should definitely make a batch of bacon cheddar fries! As a side note, you should have enough to serve two, so if you are entertaining for a large crowd you might want to double if not triple the recipe!
