As they say over on Just Putzing Around the Kitchen, “there is no problem a pile of crispy fries smothered in melted cheese and crunchy bacon bits can’t solve.” After trying this Bacon Cheese Fries recipe, we definitely agree! It’s the perfect guilty-pleasure snack for curling up on the couch, and quick to whip up whenever the craving calls.


– ½ package frozen, store-bought french fries. You can also make them with homemade fries!
– ½ cup grated Pepper Jack cheese
– ½ cup grated Colby Jack cheese
– 2 strips bacon
– Green onions, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a frying pan or skillet, cook bacon strips until crispy. Allow to drain on paper towels, then crumble or chop into small pieces. Set aside.
  2. Cook frozen french fries according to the package instructions. Scoop fries onto an oven-safe plate.
  3. Layer grated cheese and bacon bits over the top of your cooked fries.
  4. Set oven to low broil.
  5. Stick cheese/bacon-covered fries back in the oven for about 1 minute, or until cheese is completely melted.
  6. Garnish with some chopped green onion.
  7. Enjoy immediately, with lots of ketchup and blue cheese dressing.
