    Sharon123's Note:

    Guiltless cheesy seasoned fries topped with veggie bacon, jalapenos and scallions served with a cool low-fat buttermilk ranch on the side. So when it's cheese fries you are craving, make them yourself and you'll save hundreds of calories and have better portion control preparing it yourself. A half order at Chili's is a whopping 1260 calories and 89 grams of fat, yikes!! This recipe is a serving for two, if you want to make this into a meal, why not serve a large fresh garden salad on the side, with more ranch dressing! You'll have those carbs you crave and feel completely satisfied. Leave the skin on for added fiber, and this recipe uses a full fat cheddar so that the cheese melts beautifully, Just use less of it and it will be great. if you prefer using reduced fat cheese, Cabot and Sargento are two brands that are good to use. I have tweaked the recipe, using veggie bacon. From skinny taste.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 400°. Line baking sheet with foil for easy clean-up. Lightly coat with cooking spray.
    2. 2
      Cut each potato lengthwise into 1/4 inch thin slices; then cut each slice into 1/4 inch fries.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, combine cut potatoes and oil; toss well. Add seasoning (paprika to salt and pepper). Toss to coat.
    4. 4
      Place potatoes in a single layer on a lightly greased large baking sheet. Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes or until tender crisp, turning once half way through (depending on thickness this may require more or less time).
    5. 5
      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.

      Serve with low fat buttermilk ranch dressing.

      Made with regular bacon and skipped the jalapenos. Were so good alongside our grilled hot dogs for a quick and easy dinner; also served with Onion Strings(Pioneer Woman) 506531 which were awesome in their own right! Made for Spring PAC 2014.

      Made for PRMR! Great fries. I did use regular bacon as I do not eat veggie bacon. We think these had a great flavor and easy to make. Thanks
