These were so good! The only things I did different was use OreIda crinkle cut fries and baked as directed, and used 1 cup shard cheddar and 1 cup mild cheddar instead of all sharp cheddar. They turned out so good! I will definitely be making them again.
Yummy decadent fries. I made these as directed, but I made homemade baked fries. My grandson wolfed these down. Thanks for sharing, Elizabeth. Made for Went to the Market tag.
