Here are 4 more ideas for topping your french fries to make cravable, sharable, binge-worthy snacks.
Recipe reviewer shans1622 says, "Very yummy, didn't make the cheese sauce I had cubed cheese that you just melt in the microwave or on the stove top and you can use the chili with or with out the beans per peoples preference."
"As the old joke goes, it takes a lot of time and effort to make poutine, but at least when you're finally done you get to eat soggy fries," says Chef John. "And, what incredibly delicious, soggy fries they are. While I don't have any problem with you buying the cheese curds, or using frozen fries, I do hope you make the sauce from scratch. Use beef chuck, short rib, or brisket to achieve this marvelously meaty, super savory, ridiculously rich gravy that makes all the sogginess worth it."
6. Bacon Fries
"Bacon fries are just something out of this world," says recipe creator Christopher Nance-Boykin. "If French fries weren't already perfect by themselves, now make them even more awesome by wrapping bacon around them. Garnish with parsley flakes and eat while warm, with a sriracha ketchup sauce if you like."
"These yummy potatoes are like some I enjoyed in a pub once, with a nice cold beer," says recipe creator 1cookinmama. "Top with caramelized onions, sour cream, chili, or whatever you have on hand. Yum!"
