I found this recipe on Pinterest, and I couldn’t wait to try it. How can you go wrong with potatoes drenched in ranch, and covered in bacon/cheese? We both loved it! The original recipe call for bacon bits, but I cooked bacon and sprinkled that on it instead. Next time I think I would put a small amount of the ranch sauce on the bottom of the pan, and save the rest to serve with the fries. This recipe does take some time to prepare/bake, so plan ahead. I think this would be great for football food while watching a game! I have edited the directions to show how I would prepare them next time.
Cheesy Potato Fries
Source: slightly adapted from: oh so Delicioso
1/4 cup olive oil
salt, pepper, seasoning salt, garlic powder, onion powder
sour cream/ranch sauce:
1 cup sour cream
1 cup ranch dressing
1/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup bacon, fried until crisp and diced
Cut potatoes into steak fries. Place on a foiled baking sheet. Toss with olive oil. Sprinkle to taste the salt, pepper, seasoning salt, garlic powder, and onion powder. Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes, or until fork tender. Meanwhile, combine the sour cream/ranch sauce ingredients.
On a separate platter (that is oven safe), spread a small amount of the sauce. Place hot potatoes on the sauce. Sprinkle with toppings, and place under a oven broiler. Broil until cheese melts. Serve with extra sauce on side.
