This is my version of the Buffalo Fries served at the Tommyknocker Brewery in Idaho Springs, CO. They are sooo good! This recipe can easily be doubled or scaled down for one. I like my fries drenched in the hot sauce and blue cheese, by all means don't add as much as is called for if you prefer. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 15 ounces ore ida country style frozen french fries (or your favorite frozen french fries)
  • 12 cup hot sauce (I use Lousiana brand hot sauce)
  • 14 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 3 ounces blue cheese
  • 12 cup ranch dressing (for dipping)


  1. Bake french fries according to package directions.
  2. In a small saucepan combine hot sauce, vinegar and butter on med. heat until butter is melted and well combined.
  3. When fries are done, transfer to platter and drizzle with hot sauce.
  4. Crumble blue cheese all over fries and pop back in the oven for a second so the cheese can melt just slightly and stick to the fries.
  5. Serve with Ranch dressing for dipping if desired.

Pretty good i would say. Flavor was really good. As the other reviews started the fries don't remain cruncy but i think that should be expected. They weren't soggy by any means eather. I put them under the broiler with the blue cheese and some of the hot sauce burned onto the fries (kind of like a BBQ Grill which i really liked actually). Definitely will make again!!!

I would love to figure out a way to keep these fries crispy, but the flavor was great! I want to try them with some garlic aioli next time, in place of the ranch! Thanks for sharing, KLBoyle!
