Buffalo Cheese Fries

I never buy frozen fries at the grocery store. Divingabe makes the best fries. I saw THIS RECIPE and wanted to make it when Gregory was home. As usual he had to go back to work early and I had a bag in the freezer which I wanted to use up before we went back to Long Island.

I adapted the recipe.

1 1/2 bags frozen French Fries( used one bag)
1-2 Tablespoons  Olive Oil( sprayed with olive oil pam)
1 Tsp. Garlic Salt
1 Tsp. Cayenne powder
Black pepper to taste
1 cup buffalo wing sauce
1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese( Mexican blend)
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese( would NEVER use)
3 green onion-sliced
1 Tbl. chopped chives( didn't use)

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

In a large bowl add the frozen fries. Coat with olive oil. Add the garlic salt, cayenne and pepper. Stir to make sure fries are evenly coated.

Put the fries on the cookie sheet lined with the parchment paper and pop in the oven for 20-25 mins, turning half way thru.

Place your Buffalo wing sauce and the butter in a pot and heat it over low until the butter has melted.

 When the fries are crispy, turn the oven on to high broil. Pour the buffalo sauce over the fries in the pan and also sprinkle with cheese. Watch closely! Takes about 2 minutes for the cheese to melt.

Take it out and add the green onion and chives.

We thought this was pretty good. It was very filling! Easy and a good way to use up those extra fries hanging around in the freezer.


  1. Looks yummy, but I will pass. Too much for my tummy. The older I get, the less I need the good stuff. Rabbit food is the order of the day..well, some days anyway.

  2. Myra I feel the same. But after showing this to Larry, he is off to get a bag of frozen French Fries. He eats Hot Sauce til it's coming out his ears, among other places. ; }
    Thanks Linda. You made a grown man cry with joy.!!!

  3. I bet Bob would like these-a nice once in a while treat. I'm with you on the blue cheese, Linda......not a fan at all...........

    Hahahahah Dottiemaye-sounds like you've got a hot-sauce-lovin' hubby! :)

  4. Carol we had these for lunch today. I had to drink skim milk with my serving. He ate a much bigger serving minus the milk. The only thing he said was that his lips were burning. Glad something still makes those lips burn.
    Linda very good. Thank you. Hugs, Dottiemaye
