A cousin to the loaded baked potato, Cheesy Bacon Fries often accompany our casual dinners of sandwiches or finger foods. But what makes these fries so delicious is not the bacon or cheese {though they both help immensely}. It is the ranch dip. Just a bit of this dip on fries changes them from good to insanely delicious.

Cheesy Bacon Fries
1 32 oz bag regular cut frozen French fries
2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 lb bacon, fried and crumbled
ranch dipping sauce (recipe follows)

Cook fries in 450 degree oven for about 20 minutes. Turn half way through cooking. Remove fries to oven safe serving platter. Cover with 1 c shredded cheese and half of the crumbled bacon, then the remaining cheese and finish with the remaining bacon. Return to oven for five minutes to melt cheese. Serve with ranch dipping sauce. THIS IS A MUST! The sauce makes the fries!

1 0.4 oz pkg ranch dressing mix (recommend Hidden Valley)
