Bacon Ranch Cheese Fries for Game Day

It’s not game day without Cheese Fries! This Bacon Cheese Fries Recipe is out of this world (and so easy).

These days I don’t have hours and hours to prep for tailgating. The food we eat needs to be A) AMAZING and B) quick and easy. Henry, our 8 month old, is officially on the move and it’s all I can do to keep the baby gates closed and him out of Scout’s food and water bowls.

That being said, we still want to have all the best snacks for Sunday football. Since Pat is obsessed with fantasy sports, we have to watch allll the games. And I get through it by eating alllll the cheese fries. It’s a win win.

The Best Ranch for Cheese Fries

Walmart and Hidden Valley are making my life easier with these new Hidden Valley® Original Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing Mix Shakers. Such an awesome and fast way to add flavor to all your favorite snacks and meals.

You can find this cute and fun shaker in the dressing aisle of your local Walmart and it’s a pantry staple at our house. I love that using the shaker on these Bacon Ranch Fries gets all the fries extra spiced up and ready for snacking. Simply perfection!

How to Make Loaded Cheese Fries

Ranch, cheese, bacon, and fries…that’s pretty much all you need for these Bacon Cheese Fries with Ranch. The ultimate combination. We have kicked things up a notch by using three different cheeses (cheddar, feta, and mozzarella), using ranch seasoning right on the fries, and garnishing with ranch dressing, green onions, and cilantro.

And trust me, I wanted this recipe to be easy too. So we’re just using frozen fries and slathering them with all the tastiest things. That way you can just throw them in the oven to cook, then add on the cheese, ranch dressing, & other toppings for a few minutes at the end. Next thing you know, the best cheese fries recipe is all ready for the party.

Feed me these 3 Cheese Bacon Ranch Cheese Fries for every meal and I’m a happy camper. I won’t even mind that football is on. (Shocker…I tailgate for the Tacos and Tequila!)
