Bacon French Fries | Family Economics
By Tori Tait
There is something so irresistible about bacon. I’m not quite sure what it is, but bacon seems like the perfect addition to so many foods. I recently had the idea to combine French fries and bacon and wow, I am sure glad I did. The bacon adds and intensifies the flavor of the crispy French fries making the already irresistible treat even better.
What additional ingredients do you add to your French fries?
Bacon French Fries
Cook: 40 minutes
Yield: Approximately 8 servings
1 bag frozen French fries (whatever brand is your favorite)
1/4 cup milk
8 strips of bacon, cooked and finely chopped
Sea salt to taste
Spread frozen fries onto baking sheet and place in oven at the directed temperature (check the bag). Remove from oven half-way through the cooking process (approximately 15 minutes).
In a small bowl, whisk egg and milk, adding in the bacon pieces. Toss French fries in the egg, milk and bacon mixture until they are fully coated. Place fries back onto the baking sheet and return to the oven for the remainder of cooking time, or until fries are lightly browned.
Before serving, sprinkle with desired amount of sea salt. Eat alone or serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
