  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.

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.
