Everyone seems to love the idea of loaded nachos but I have always been a sucker for anything with French fries. I choose specifically to use shoe string friends because, since they are small and petite, it allows for all the toppings to distribute more evenly to each fry! The thing that makes this recipe so delicious in my eyes is the homemade aioli sauce…. The recipe is right here:
- In a bowl, whisk 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice and 1/2 cup mayonnaise together. Add 2 teaspoons Sriracha and 1 teaspoon minced garlic and stir. Last, add 1/2 teaspoon of onion salt and 1/2 teaspoon of paprika and give a good mix. Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator for at least an hour. This allows all the flavors to come together and marinate.
This addition is so key because it gives the fries AMAZING flavor. Fragrant garlic, a hint of onion salt, and a dash of spicy Sriracha are all what combine to make this dish what it is. Bacon never hurts and the green onions and cheese just top off the goodness that you have!
What exactly is aioli?
Traditionally, aioli is a Spanish/French garlic mayonnaise sauce made from crushed garlic, egg yolk, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. It has morphed into multiple different variations as those in the culinary world have played with the flavors. Mayonnaise in the most traditional base.
Ingredients for our Loaded Aioli Cheese Fries Recipe:
- Sriracha Aioli Sauce
- Parmesan Cheese
- Shoestring French Fries
How to make our Loaded Aioli Cheese Fries Recipe:
Preheat the oven to the temperature the French fries require. Once ready, place the fries on a baking sheet and cook in an even layer. While the fries are baking, make the Aioli Sauce (recipe above). Set aside.
Crumble the bacon and chop the cilantro. If you don’t have precooked bacon, cook your regular bacon according to the directions. Cool and rough chop/crumble. Set Aside.
When fries are don’t cooking, remove from oven and place in a baking-safe dish. Top with 1 cup of diced bacon. Next, drizzle with 1/3 cup aioli sauce, and top with shredded parmesan.
Last, top with diced cilantro. Place back in the oven, under a broiler, for 1-2 minute. Keep a very close eye on the food so that you don’t burn it! (Oven broilers can vary.)
Remove from oven and serve!
As much as I love a good charcuterie board or a delicious chip dip, there is just something so good about a plate, loaded with fries and overflowing with amazing toppings. This dish is no exception. Need an even EASIER way to make this? Skip the homemade aioli sauce (which I really don’t recommend), and use a store-bought one. You’ll still get the picture and have a dish the whole family will enjoy!
