How about some baked fries, my friends!

Last year, I shared with you one of my other favorite ways to make baked fries, with Parmesan.  

So today, I’m sharing with you how to make these super easy Crispy Cheddar Baked Fries!

I know, the great thing about baked fries is the fact they aren’t fried in all that grease and calories, right?

My personal reason for always popping out baked fries from the oven is … it’s easy!

No need to get out the fryer, or heat up any oil.

With these fries, just wash and cut the taters.  Drizzle on a little olive oil.  Sprinkle on cheddar cheese (or your favorite kind of cheese) and a seasoned bread crumb mixture.

Boom.  That’s it.

Baking these home cut fries in the oven for 30 minutes will make them just as crispy as if they were fried in the fryer.

While these are in the oven, you could whip up an easy dipping sauce.

Also know as fry sauce.

Growing up here in Idaho/Utah area, we have always had fry sauce with our french fries.  


In fact, my first trip out to Arkansas with the boys many years ago (before bloggers and Pinterest), we asked for fry sauce at the drive up window.  The lady’s face was priceless.  I had confused her so terribly.  But, then the look on my face was just as confused!  How does she NOT know what fry sauce is? 

That moment, feeling the boys and I were the only ones in Arkansas that has had the experience of the simplicity of ketchup and mayo joining together as a fry sauce, was sad.

Blew. My. Mind.

There’s a lot of different versions of making this kind of fry sauce.  But remember, I like it simple… so I keep it simple.

Instead of using ketchup, I love to use BBQ sauce for this fry sauce.

It’s very just as easy as getting the fries ready to bake.  After stirring the mayonnaise in a small mixing bowl (say bye-bye lumps), add BBQ sauce.  As little or as much as you want.  

Dip these Crispy Cheddar Baked Fries in the BBQ fry sauce and your taste buds will be doing a little dance!

You’re welcome.

If you love dipping your fries in sauce as much as I do, here is another one for the spicy side in you!  Pepper Jack Dipping Sauce… it’s a little on the naughty side.  But, you’ll know what I mean when you have some!

Enjoy, my friends!

      Renee, these would be really easy to break out after work. You could even cut them ahead of time and set them in water. Then when you got home, the prep part is pretty much done!

    Yes yes yes to crispy and cheesy fries that are baked. You totally found my weakness – I would eat fries all the time if I could and add cheddar and panko with all those flavors and I’m totally hooked. Gloria, these look amazing especially with the bbq fry sauce!
