Easy Cheesy Fries

Easy Cheesy FriesFrench Fries are a basic comfort food that almost everyone enjoys. As is the case here, the easiest recipes are often the most favorite.

One of the great things about this recipe is that it’s so easy to prepare, requiring about five minutes of actual work. Just pop them in the oven at the right time, take them out to add the cheese, and bake for a few more minutes.

Check out the video, then read the instructions below.


Frozen potatoes (see below)
Garlic powder


Preheat oven as instructed on package of potatoes (usually about 425°).

Arrange single layer of potatoes on baking sheet or baking dish. For this video I used waffle fries, but you can use any type of french fry or tater tots that you prefer.

Bake for all but five minutes of the time as per package directions.

Remove from oven and season with a pinch or two of salt and a light sprinkling of garlic powder. Be careful the first time out; don’t use too much garlic powder.

Cover with layer of cheese. My favorite is Mozzarella, but you can use the variety you like best.

Bake an additional five minutes to melt cheese.

Remove from oven and sprinkle just a bit more cheese on top. Let this last layer of cheese melt as you plate the rest of the dinner.

And that’s it! See how easy it is to jazz up a side dish? Don’t forget that, if you decide you need more of this, or less of that, you can always adjust things the next time you make this dish. This time around I served these with my Italian Chicken Sandwiches, but they’ll go with any dish that is normally served with basic fries.

Try this one out, then come back and leave me a comment to tell me how it went. Until next time,

Play with your food!
