There is no denying that here in America, we are obsessed with our fries. Game days, Saturdays, and 2 am morning snacks wouldn't be the same without fries completely overloaded with all your favorite fixings. Heapings of cheese, pulled pork, chili, sour cream, and guacamole, we love it all - as long as we can indulge our favorite carb-filled food. Smothered in all that is good and holy, these 13 French fry recipes will satisfy your spud craving in the most scrumptious way.
13 French Fry Recipes to Try
1. Game Day Loaded Nachos Fries
On game day, the only way to eat your homemade French fries is with all the fixings. This side dish recipe uses frozen fries, meaning you can skip the strife of the hot oil and peeling russet potatoes and stick with a baking sheet instead.
Game Day Loaded Nachos are filled to the brim with goodness - sour cream, olives, ground beef, cheddar cheese, refried, beans, and of course, jalapeños.
Make sure to load them on a single layer for crispier fries!
2. Baked Chili Cheese Fries with Bacon and Ranch
Chili Cheese Fries are a spud classic - and what better way to enjoy them than topped with bacon and drizzled with ranch dressing! You won't find any ketchup on these homemade fries. If you want that stick with fast food!
Again, these skip the heavy pot, peanut oil, and paper towels steps and instead call for the oven to do all the work. (You could always use an air fryer as well!). No deep frying with canola oil here! Get the recipe here.
3. Loaded Philly Cheesesteak Fries
Loaded Philly Cheesesteak Fries - because the kid inside you can't pass up crinkle cut fries, while the adult you are can't resist a Philly Cheesesteak. These yummy crispy fries have your name all over them.

4. Chorizo French Fry Nachos
Go crazy with your fry nachos and toss in some spicy chorizo, Cacique crema Mexicana, and all the mozzarella and queso you can handle.
While these call for frozen fries again, you can always make your own by frying them at a high temperature and seasoning with olive oil and flaky sea salt. When cutting your Idaho potatoes, make sure to soak them in cold water to prevent them from turning.
