  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup crispy bacon bits

  3. Heat a deep fryer or a large pot of oil to 350°F (175°C).
  4. Fry the potato strips in batches until they are golden brown and crispy. Remove them from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  5. Sprinkle the hot fries with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Now comes the fun part. Layer the crispy fries with shredded cheddar cheese and crispy bacon bits.
  7. Place the loaded fries under a broiler for a minute or two until the cheese is bubbling and gooey.
  8. Top them off with sliced green onions and a dollop of sour cream.
  9. Serve your cheat day indulgence immediately while it’s hot and gooey!
