How To Make Outback Steakhouse-Inspired Aussie Cheese Fries

Munch on this Outback Steakhouse-inspired Aussie cheese fries recipe. Crispy fries with gooey cheese and savory bacon, all in one snack!

Cook: 20 mins
Total: 20 mins
Serves:

Ingredients

  • 32 oz french fries, (1 package), crinkle cut, frozen
  • 1 cup colby-jack cheese, shredded
  • 4 oz bacon, cooked and cut into bits
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 cups vegetable oil, for frying

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 380 degrees F.
  2. In a deep heavy skillet, preheat oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Fry the french fries in small batches until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel.
  4. Pile them on an oven-safe platter. Season the french fries with salt and pepper, then sprinkle shredded cheese and bacon bits on top.
  5. Place the platter in the oven and bake for 1 to 2 minutes or until the cheese begins to melt.
  6. Serve with a ranch dressing on the side and garnish with chop parsley. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • Make sure that the oil is hot enough before you put the French fries on the skillet so they will cook immediately. If you don’t have a thermometer, you will know that the oil is hot enough if it starts to bubble steadily. 
  • For added flavors, you can also throw in some garlic powder or ground thyme onto the fried potatoes before placing them in the oven.
