These fries are so good. They are cheesy and bacony and so very, very yummy.
You will need a deep fryer or deep pan filled with oil.
Heat the oil to 350 degrees F.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
3 unpeeled medium size russet potatoes
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Clean the potatoes, but don't peel. Slice them into thick fries. You should get 12-15 slices per potato. Maybe more, if you have bigger potatoes.
Fry the fries in the hot oil. To make sure they get crisp, you fry them for about a minute and remove from oil and drain. Let cool for about 10 minutes. Now, fry them in the oil for another 5 minutes. They will be a light golden brown color.
Put them on a baking sheet.
Sprinkle the cheese and bacon bits over the fries.
Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve with ranch dressing if you like.
This will feed about 4 as an appetizer. If you want to make more just slice up an extra potato, cook and extra slice of bacon, and add a little more cheese.
