Buffalo Bacon Cheese Steak Fries

Buffalo Bacon Cheese Steak Fries. Or, as they are known to us, Beachwood BBQ's Smothered Steak Fries - the most perfect restaurant appetizer ever to be made. I dare you to tell me what isn't perfect about crispy steak fries smothered in buffalo sauce, bleu cheese, cheddar cheese and topped with bacon and green onions. Can't come up with anything can you?


Like I said, perfect. I mean honestly, fries are always better with bacon. Bacon fries - yum. And buffalo sauce. Buffalo fries - yum. And cheese. Cheese fries - yum. Bring it all together and what do you got? Buffalo bacon cheese fries!! And well, the green onions seem like they are only there for color, but trust me, they really do help with flavor. So what do you do when the world's best appetizer is located at your favorite restaurant that is now 80 miles away?


You make it at home of course. Because there is nothing better than the world's best restaurant appetizer, than the world's best restaurant appetizer made at home. Plus, did I mention it's Buffalo BACON Cheese Steak Fries. Um, hello. I obviously have a thing for cooking with bacon.


Buffalo Bacon Cheese Steak Fries

Makes 4 appetizer servings

16 oz package frozen steak fries
4 tablespoons, divided, Frank's Original Red Hot Sauce (or more if you want!)
1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 - 1/3 cup crumbled gorgonzola or bleu cheese
4 slices cooked thick cut nitrate free bacon, cut into pieces
3 green onions, sliced

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Spread fries in an even layer on baking sheet. 

Cook fries according to package instructions, except cook only until they start to crisp up but aren't overly crisp, keeping in mind you will be cooking them for another 3 to 5 minutes. 

Place cooked fries and bacon pieces in a bowl and toss with 3 tablespoons hot sauce. Spread fries and bacon back out on the parchment or foil covered baking sheets. Cover with both cheeses and sprinkle with green onions. Bake for 3 to 5 more minutes until cheese is melted.

**UPDATE - sticking them under the broiler for the last 3 minutes makes the cheese melty and the fries crispy!**

Place fries in a bowl and sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon (or more, if desired) hot sauce over the cooked cheesy bacon fries and serve. 

Love, Luck and Happiness!

  3. Wow, these look out of hand and truly are a meal in itself. I love that you used frozen steak fries instead of making the fries from scratch. It makes this recipe way more approachable. So going to surprise the kids (and hubby) with these one night. I still need and want to make your cauliflower crust pizza. My family is excited for it as well. I keep eyeballing every time I'm on your blog! Hope you're enjoying this insanely amazing weather! xoxo, Jackie
