October is National American Cheese Month, so how about some cheese fries, made with a fine American cheddar*?

You don’t even have to fry the potatoes!

This easy-to-make dish uses frozen, baked Grown In Idaho crinkle-cut fries.

Once they’re golden brown in the oven, top them with shredded sharp cheddar cheese, bacon, scallions, and sour cream (or ranch dressing).

Some want theirs with a big squirt of ketchup, others as is.

But you may want to make a double batch. These fries will quickly disappear.

April 20th is National Cheddar Fries Day.

Ingredients For 4 Servings

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 package (28 ounces) frozen Grown in Idaho® brand (or substitute) crinkle-cut French fries
  • 1½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup sour cream or ranch dressing
  • 2 scallions, sliced, green parts only
  • Ketchup, for serving

    1. PREHEAT the oven to 425°F.

    2. GREASE a rimmed baking sheet or a large cast-iron skillet with cooking spray. Spread out the crinkle-cut fries in an even layer on the sheet. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until crispy and golden brown.

    3. SPRINKLE the fries evenly with the shredded cheese. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the bacon.

    4. DRIZZLE with the sour cream or ranch dressing, then sprinkle with the sliced green onions. Serve immediately with ketchup on the side.
