I love cheese Fries. No…I mean, LOVE.
I would take a plate of melty, salty, savory cheese fries over a chocolate sundae any time. This recipe is so easy and because these are oven-baked and not deep-fried you can feel a little better about them. Still, they are super indulgent and great for parties and movie nights in!
AS SEEN ON WMUR COOK’S CORNER
2 large russet potatoes cut into wedges
1 Tablespoons Roasted Garlic Olive Oil
*Salt and Pepper to taste
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 strips crispy cooked bacon crumbled
Parsley or green onions for garnish
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. In a large bowl coat, the potato wedges in Roasted Garlic olive oil. Spread in one even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Cook for about 10-15 minutes and turn the potatoes over. Cook for an additional 10 minutes until potatoes are crisp around the edges. Remove potatoes from oven and place on an oven safe plate or in an oven safe baking dish. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and bacon. Set oven to Broil. Broil the potatoes 1-2 minutes until the cheese has melted. Watch carefully as the cheese can burn quickly on the broil setting. Remove from oven and serve topped with parsley or chopped green onions.
