How to make it

  1. Divide the bag of fries in half and use the other half later.
  2. Heat oil to 350 degrees. If you do not have a thermometer, make sure the oil is hot enough so that when you set a French fry in the oil, it will cook immediately. If the French fry sinks to the bottom and barely bubbles, it is not hot enough. Fry the potatoes in small batches. They are done when they are golden brown and float to the top of the skillet. (I like to use a Dutch oven). Be sure to drain the potatoes on paper towels. You can keep them warm in the oven while the other fries cooking. When all French fries are cooked and drained, place them on a platter. Salt the French fries if you like and sprinkle on cheese and cooked bacon. Pop these back into a warm oven until the cheese begins to melt.Here is what Jane Coyle suggested1 16 ounce bottle Ranch Dressing2 teaspoons paprika1 teaspoon cayenne pepper1 teaspoon dried thyme1 teaspoon dried oregano1 teaspoon white pepper1 teaspoon black pepper1 tablespoon kosher salt1 tablespoon garlic powder1 tablespoon onion powder
