Cheese fries make a perfect snack or side dish. This is also a good way to give life to your homemade fries. I have a good news for you. Did you know that preparing cheese fries is simple and easy?
If you like to make one for yourself, you can start with ingredients that are ready to consume. For example, I am using frozen uncooked fries and bacon bits for this recipe. This means that we can save time and and effort in preparing the ingredients that I mentioned.
The cheese sauce, on the other hand, was prepared from scratch. However, you can do I the easy way by purchasing packaged cheese sauce from the supermarket. It does not matter how you came-up with the ingredients; whether you did each from scratch or bought them prepared, the important thing is that you are enjoying what you assembled. Just so you know, I enjoyed eating the cheese fries that I made – although I had to watch my intake because this is not the healthiest food in the menu. It is not bad to have this once in awhile though.
