Buffalo Bleu Cheese Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

A plate of hot, spicy, and crispy wings with a side of bleu cheese dressing pretty much steals the show of any football Sunday. But when you think about it, it’s really that combination of hot sauce and cheese dressing that makes it what they are, so why not substitute the chicken wings for some steaming hot fries, like in this recipe? Even your vegetarian friends will be happy fans.

Caesar Salad Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

How great is a Caesar salad when you get a bite of lettuce, drenched in dressing, and a crispy crouton? Now take that crouton and replace it with fries. We did, and it was amazing.

Chicken Parm Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

Chicken parm is a truly genius creation. The gooey mozzarella cheese melted over savory marinara sauce and crisp, breaded chicken cutlet is one of our most favored pseudo-Italian dishes there is. We decided to add a little more crunch, though, and serve that classic dish over a bed of fries.

Chicken Pot Pie Fries

Jane Bruce

A chicken pot pie wouldn’t be the comforting, decadent dish that it is today without that flakey, golden brown crust canopied above white sauce, vegetables, and chicken. It becomes even more irreplaceable, though, when add that combination to some crispy, salty fries, like we did in this recipe. Don’t skip the crust, though, just because the fries are there.

Cream Cheese and Lox Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

Many New Yorkers hit the deli in the morning for a fresh bagel smothered in whipped cream cheese and topped with smoked salmon. They know what they’re doing, and we think they’ll be equally as impressed when they see that we’ve replaced the bagel with fries in this recipe.

Eggs Benedict Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

Sultry, buttery hollandaise, crisp ham, and a yolky poached egg isn’t quite the same experience as enjoying those three things over a toasted English muffin. We think you’ll agree about them being served over fries, as well.

Fondue Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

While there’s nothing quite like enjoying a boiling pot of cheesy fondue with a hunk of crusty bread, sometimes you’re at a loss when you don’t have a fondue pot on hand. Here’s our solution: fondue fries.  Fondue is actually incredibly easy to make, so let those fries take the place of the pot and the bread and serve it as a sauce rather than something to dip into.

Gyro Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

The combination of flavorful lamb meat, tzatziki sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, pepperoncini, and maybe a few olives if you’re in the mood, cannot be beat. Wrapped in a pita, it’s the ultimate cheers to Greece. Next time you’re craving the sandwich, though, skip the pita and try tossing those combinations with fries, instead.

Nacho Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

Move aside, tortilla chips, because there’s another sheriff in town when it comes to nachos. As you’ll see once you try this recipe, fries make the perfect substitution to nest refried beans, gooey Cheddar cheese, salsa, sour cream, and whatever else you feel like piling on.

Philly Cheesesteak Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

A classic Philly cheesesteak, a mixture of sautéed steak and onions smothered in Cheese Whiz and wedged into a hoagie, can really make a crowd go nuts. Next time you’re craving one, though, skip the hoagie and try tossing that meat, onion, and cheese combination with fries. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Pepperoni Pizza Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

Melted cheese, pizza sauce, and spicy pepperonis taste pretty good when you bite into a large triangle of pizza crust, but guess what? That combination tastes pretty good on some golden brown fries, too.

Sausage and Gravy Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

Everyone loves creamy, savory sausage gravy spooned over a doughy biscuit, and we think that they might like it even more when it’s doused all over crispy, hot fries, too.

Cincinnati Chili Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

If you’ve been to Cincinnati and have tried their chili, then you know it can only be Skyline Chili. A silky, thin sauce flavored with hints of cinnamon coats finely ground meat for a truly delicious and unique bowl of chili. Topped with shredded Cheddar cheese and diced onions, and you can call it a day. Oh wait, not until you place that chili, cheese, and onions on a bed of fries, though.

Spicy Tuna Roll Fries Recipe

Jane Bruce

Who ever said that sushi and fries don’t go together? The spicy combination of tuna and mayonnaise tastes just as good without the rice and seaweed paper and placed on a raft of fries. Just don’t forget the spicy wasabi mayonnaise.
