Mouthwatering Cheddar Cheese Fries

What’s better than french fries? Loaded cheese fries! Today just so happens to be National Cheddar Fries Day, so I decided whip some up as a treat to my family. I topped them with fresh Hiland Dairy ingredients and watched them disappear right before my eyes.

Diva’s Tip

Want a healthier version? Simply bake the french fries in the oven instead of frying. Be sure to bake them longer than directed for a crispier texture.
