YUM! I used a little less than 1/2 bag of fries so the bacon and cheese was perfect but if I were to use a whole bag I would most likely use more bacon and cheese. I will be making these again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I really enjoyed this because it was so easy to make. I added jalapeno peppers though because I like a little kick. Read More

This recipe is similar to the one at Outback Steakhouse. The only difference is that my husband and I had them add fresh chopped garlic to the fries. Now we always add fresh chopped garlic to the fries whenever we make this recipe. So delicious!!!! Read More

The only thing I did differently is that I always bake my bacon in the oven instead of frying it in a skillet on the stove. The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is that if you use the full 28 ounces of fries then you would need more than a cup of cheese and three slices of bacon in my opinion. To each their own though so add as little or as much to suit your tastes. Next time I plan on adding some green onions to the top and dipping in buffalo sauce. Great recipe and easy to adapt to suit your style. Read More

for a vegetarian version I sprinkled on crispy onions brown sugar and smoked paprika in place of the bacon -- the cheese went on last -- yum yum -- not guiltless but meatless! Read More

Okay there's this one restaurant near me and it sells cheese fries. Their's is sooo good. So I wanted to try something that will be similar to it. And I came across this one. I made it with a change instead of bacon I did ham. I wish there was a rating one million stars. It was so delicious! Definatly try it out. This is one of those fail-proof food.:) Read More
