Skinny Texas Cheese Fries
Guiltless cheesy baked seasoned fries topped with bacon, jalapeños and scallions... this is SOOO good! Pure comfort food when cheese fries are what you're craving.
2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes
2 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. cumin
Salt and pepper
1 slice bacon (cooked & finely chopped)
1/3 cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp. diced scallions
1 Tbsp. sliced pickled jalapeño
Preheat the oven to 450°. Line baking sheet with foil for easy clean-up if desired. Lightly coat with cooking spray. Cut each potato lengthwise into 1/4 inch thin slices; then cut each slice into 1/4 inch fries. In a large bowl, combine cut potatoes and oil; toss well. Add seasoning (paprika to salt and pepper). Toss to coat. Place potatoes in a single layer, bake in the bottom third of the oven 10 minutes, turn and bake an additional 8 to 10 minutes, or until crisp and browned. Remove from oven, top with cheddar cheese, sliced jalapeños, scallions and bacon bits and return to oven for about 1 to 2 minutes, or until the cheese melts.
