Cheese Fries


  • 3 unpeeled potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3 slices cooked bacon
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Ranch dressing


Cut potatoes in wedges about 1/4 inch thick and 3/4 inch wide. Keep immersed in water until ready to use so they don't turn brown, dry on paper towels and cook in deep fryer (or 4-6 cups oil in frying pan) heated to 350 degrees F, 1 minute. Remove from oil and let cool 10 minutes. When cooled, return to oil and fry an additional 5 minutes or until light golden in color. Drain. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F, arrange fries on baking sheet and sprinkle both cheeses on top. Crumble bacon over cheeses. Bake 5 minutes or till cheese has melted. Serve with ranch dressing


These are my favorite at Cheddar's restaurant so I thought I'd share the recipe with you.

I eat these at Raffertys, oh my so good. I make them at home now, my son and I love them. (08/30/2006)

Cheese Fries

They sound delicious but I never deep fry anything. Has anyone ever tried these baked? I'm thinking the cut potatoes tossed with some olive oil, baked at 425 degrees F for maybe 30 minutes, turning them once or twice, then adding the cheese and bacon. Seems like it should work. I might just try that!

I like to just bake potatoes in the microwave, then cut them up and fry in a little oil, then add cheese, that's good too but this sounds even better. I'm always trying to cut the fat and calories without cutting the flavor. (08/31/2006)

I have done these in the oven. I cook potatoes in the oven and then add everything else and melt together in microwave. (09/01/2006)

Cheese Fries Rafferty's

I noticed that one of you mentioned how wonderful these are at Rafferty's. YES THEY ARE! I'm looking for the recipe for their dip. I make a fool out of myself every time we eat there! (02/26/2008)
