Introduction: How to Cook Wendy's Baconator Fries
The natural-cut fries are topped with cheddar cheese sauce and Crispy Bacon!
Step 1: To Start You’ll Need to Cook Some Bacon.
For a recipe like this I normal layout the bacon on a sheet pan lined with baking paper.
Place in the oven under the grill until crispy.
Step 2: Next You'll Need Three Large Potato.
Start by cutting the into potatoes into Fries with strips.
Discard the tops and cut the strips of potatoes making fries.
Add them to a large bowl.
Step 3: Fill the Bowl With Water.
Move them through the water, this will release some of the starch making for crispier Fries.
Once the water has become cloudy remove the Fries and dry using a tray lined with paper towel and a tea towel.
We are going to double fry these.
Step 4: Heat the Oil to 310f or 155c and Fry for 6 to 8 Minutes.
This will soft the Fries but not brown them.
Drain and layout on a tray lined with paper towel.
While the Fries cool a little less make the cheese sauce.
Step 5: In a Pot Add 100g of Butter Followed by Two Table Spoons of Plain Flour.
Combine the butter and flour. Cook for 2 minutes, this is to stop the sauce from tasting like flour.
Next, add 1 cup of milk. Heat until the milk starts to simmer and thicken.
Now turn off the heat and add 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese.
Mix through until the Cheese has melted and combine with the milk.
Step 6: Season With Salt and Pepper and for a Little Extra Flavour Add Half a Tea Spoon of Cayenne Pepper.
This cheese sauce is looking perfect! It's smooth but holds together beautifully.
Step 7: Now to Fry Our Fries a Second Time at 350f or 170c.
Cook until they become golden brown and crispy.
Drain the fries before seasoning with salt, I’m using an Aussie Favourite Chicken Salt.
Step 8: Time to Serve This Up!
Place the fires on a plate.
Hopefully, you remember to take the bacon out of the oven before it burned.
Spread the half of the bacon across the top.
Next, pour over the cheese sauce.
Top with the remaining bacon and to finish it off some freshly grated cheddar cheese.
There you have it! Wendy's Baconator Fries.
These are a bacon lovers dream.
The cheese sauce in this recipe will be perfect for any cheesy fries or hot dogs.
