Instructions Checklist
  • Slice potatoes in wide rectangular slices about 1/4-inch thick and 3/4-inch wide, yielding 12 to 15 slices per potato. Keep potatoes in cold ice-water bath until ready to fry.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Dry potato slices on paper towels.

  • Fry potatoes in hot oil for 1 minute; remove from oil, drain, and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes. Return potatoes to oil and fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes more. Again, remove from oil and drain briefly on paper towels.

  • Spread potatoes onto a baking sheet; top with Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, and bacon.

  • Heat the fries under the broiler until the cheese melts, 3 to 5 minutes. Top with jalapeno peppers to serve with ranch for dipping.

Made for recipe group 7/19/13. I used fingerling potatoes sliced up. And of course extra bacon! These were wonderful. And easy enough where I left the directions for DH to make. Nice hearty side dish. Read More

This is a good recipe! My fries didn't take long at all and they were that perfect soft/crunchy ratio you get in the restaurants. Thanks for a simple but tasty recipe! Read More

YUM! I used chopped pickled jalapenos instead of the whole slices (for better distribution) and just eyeballed everything to taste. Oh and I salted my fries when I was finished frying them. This was a nice change from the usual cheese fries and I loved that you used fresh made fries instead of using frozen fries. I will definitely be making them again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

These were really good especially after seasoning with a little garlic salt/powder and fresh cracked black pepper. I followed the recipe to a tee and would not change a thing other than seasoning to your personal preference. Thanks for sharing this recipe Mike! Read More
