Ingredients For 4 Servings

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

    1. HEAT the oven to 425°F. Grease a rimmed baking sheet or large cast-iron skillet with cooking spray.

    2. SPREAD out the crinkle-cut fries in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet.

    3. BAKE for 25 to 30 minutes, until crispy and golden brown. Then sprinkle the fries evenly with cheese. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes until the cheese is melted.

    4. REMOVE from the oven and sprinkle with the bacon. Drizzle with the sour cream or ranch dressing, then sprinkle with the sliced scallions.

    5. SERVE immediately with ketchup on the side.
