How to Make Cheddar’s Texas Cheese Fries

  1. Deep fry the French fries in vegetable oil until they are golden and crisp. Drain fries on a wire cooling rack.
  2. Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels. Cut the bacon into pieces.
  3. Spread out the cooked French fries on an ovenproof platter, leaving a hole in the middle.
  4. Sprinkle shredded cheese and bacon pieces over the fries.
  5. Bake at 425 degrees for 7 to 8 minutes or until the cheese melts and begins to brown.
  6. Place a bowl of ranch dressing in the middle of the fries. Serve immediately.

Recipe Tips

If you don’t want to prepare your fries in a deep fryer, you may want to consider using an air fryer to make crispy French fries without using as much oil.

If you have never tried making bacon in the oven, I highly recommend it, your bacon will cook up perfectly crisp and flat.
