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!

    When I was pregnant with my daughter I craved chili cheese fries all the time. With my son it was McDonalds milkshakes 🙂

  12. Topper posted on January 14, 2014 at 9:51 am (#)

    My store carries a variety of sizes for the crinkle cut fries. What size bag does this recipe reference?

    • Katie replied on January 31st, 2014 at 4:29 pm

      I used a 32 oz bag. Happy cooking!

    We love these and call them “Irish Nachos”. Thanks for posting, we eat them out and I wasn’t sure how to make it at home. I never thought about frozen fries.

    Could I use Cabot Xtra sharp instead?

    • Katie replied on March 18th, 2015 at 8:28 pm

      Peter, of course! Use whatever cheese you have on hand!

      Hi Stevie, Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Most Americans love the bacon-cheddar combo. Honestly, anything bacon. I like to provide a wide variety of recipes for cooks of all level. I want readers to feel like they can make recipes regardless if it includes homemade french fries or store-bought. Either way it’s a delicious recipe.
