Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Spread French fries in a single layer on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden and crisp, 24 to 34 minutes.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat; cook and stir until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels, reserving some of the bacon grease in the skillet. Slice into 1/4-inch strips.

  • Stir butter into the bacon grease and set skillet over medium heat; add scallions and garlic. Cook and stir until scallions are soft and browning, about 5 minutes. Add blue cheese; cook and stir with a spatula until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in half-and-half until sauce is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for 2 minutes.

  • Arrange fries on a plate and drizzle sauce over fries. Sprinkle bacon strips on top.

Cook's Notes:

Milk can be used in place of the half-and-half, but the sauce will be thinner.

Sweet onion can be used in place of the scallions, if desired.

Editor's Note:

The directions for the fries are based on the particular brand mentioned. Follow instructions on the package if using a different brand.

I detest blue cheese but my husband is a fan so I made these for him. My 5 star rating is based off of his reaction to the fries. I had my hands full with last minute things for the rest of the meal so I put these on the table for him while they were hot. First bite in and all I hear is Mmmm and that is what I heard over and over until they were gone. He absolutely loved these and has already asked when I will be making them again. Read More
