Cheesy Oven Fries with Ranch Dipping Sauce

Taste: This isn't a crispy fry recipe, but it's the cheese and sauce that makes it yummy.
Amount: It depends on potato size, but we always end up with a 13x9 full of cheesy fries. Could easily serve 8 or so as a side.
Time: 1 hour
Source: Oh So Delicioso!

  • 4-6 potatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt, or your choice of fry seasoning
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup ranch
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded
  • optional: bacon bits, green onions, etc
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray with PAM.

Scrub the potatoes well, unless you want to skin them in which case give them a nice rinse, and then cut them into steak fry size. Let them soak in water for a few minutes. Strain the fries, pop them into a big bowl, drizzle with olive oil, and stir to coat. Spread out on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt or seasoning of choice to taste and lightly toss with tongs. Bake for 40 minutes, or until fork tender.

While the fries are baking, stir the sour cream, ranch, and milk together. Set aside in the refrigerator until needed.

After the potatoes are done baking, spread 3/4ths of the sauce in the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish. Add the hot fries to the dish and drizzle the remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle the cheeses on top and any other toppings. Place under broiler until the cheese has melted  and just starts to get brown spots. Serve immediately.
