I have the perfect gourmet football food for you!
My gourmet Blue Cheese Bacon Fries is perfect for the gourmet foodie lover.
I went into food mode immediately. I said self…yep…lol…food talk…what about the cheese sauce you always pour over steaks!
I decided to take my favorite Gorgonzola Cream Sauce and use it to top crispy fries instead of the usual steak.
I used frozen fries because I wanted this to be a 20 minute meal, and using frozen fries allowed me to accomplish just that!
Don’t forget to allow the cream sauce to thicken slightly after cooking for about 5 minutes.
Lastly, top the fries with all the cheesy goodness you can take and all the crispy bacon, green onions and more cheese if you can handle it!
This is Superbowl food heaven!
Pass me a fork quick…so I can eat!
