All-dressed Cheese Oven Fries

This is adapted from a  recipe at “Skinnytaste.com”, which I highly recommend!  Reminds us of New York Fries’ “The Works”

  • 2 medium potatoes, yukon gold or russet, washed and dried (peel if desired)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • coarse salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 slice center cut bacon, cooked & finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp diced scallions
  • 1 tbsp sliced pickled Jalapeno (jarred on canned)
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Lightly coat a large cookie sheet with olive oil.
  2. Cut each potato lengthwise into 1/4 inch thin slices; then cut each slice into 1/4 inch fries.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cut potatoes and oil; toss well.
  4. Add seasoning (paprika to salt and pepper). Toss to coat.
  5. Place potatoes in a single layer on a lightly greased large baking sheet.
  6. Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes or until tender, turning once half way through.
  7. Remove from oven, place fries into two small oven safe dishes (or one large dish for sharing), top with cheddar cheese, sliced jalapenos, scallions and bacon bits and return to oven for  about 2 minutes, or until the cheese melts.
  8. Serve with sour cream.
