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!
Katie Original Recipe
