Cheddar and Bacon Loaded Pub Fries





Nothing says movie night comfort food on a cold winter weekend night than these 
cheddar and bacon loaded pub fries! My family goes wild over these, and you will too! 
A few side notes: I like to use a large glass lasagna pan for this recipe. 
The jalapeno peppers are optional. Serve with ranch dressing for dipping!


Ingredients

2 - 28oz. bags of Steak Fries (I use a bit less, about 1 & 1/2 bags)
1/2 lb. bacon, fried crisp and crumbled

5-6 green onions, thinly sliced (a little bit less than 1/4 cup)
8-12 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
pickled sliced jalapenos 

Ranch dressing for dipping


Instructions 

Preheat oven as directed on steak fries package.
Spray casserole dish with cooking spray. Arrange steak fries in the
casserole dish and bake according to package directions. 
(I bake mine for about 25 minutes at 425F)
While fries are baking, fry, drain and crumble the bacon.
Chop the green onions and shred the cheddar cheese.
Once fries are finished baking, remove from the oven and top with toppings in this order:
shredded cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon, green onions, 
jalapeno pepper slices.
I also like to top with additional cheese but that's just my preference.
Return the fries to the hot oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with ranch dressing for dipping. 





I use one and a half bags of these fries to feed 4 adults



Spread frozen fries in your casserole dish. I use a glass lasagna dish.



Fry, drain, and crumble bacon while fries are baking



Dice green onions while fries are baking



Remove baked fries from oven and sprinkle with cheese



Top the cheese with crumbled crisp bacon



Top the bacon and cheese with the diced green onions



Top with sliced jalapeno peppers



I like to put extra cheese on top of it all before baking the second time!



Bake in 400 F oven for approx. 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve with ranch dressing on the side for dipping.



Perfect for movie night!

I hope you have a great week

  1. You're killing me! That looks so good...and so bad. You had me at bacon, but I must resist, even though I really want to make that.
