Ingredients for Cheddar's Texas Cheese Fries copycat recipe.


Cheddars Texas Cheese Fries can be put together for a fun game night, your next tailgate, or an evening watching movies at home. Even if you aren’t a professional cook, your results will be really good.

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.
