  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Spread French fries in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden and crisp, 24 to 34 minutes.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
