What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than to serve up some good comfort food like bacon and cheese french fries! I guess the past few days I have had a craving for fried food! After making the chicken and fries, I was thinking bacon and cheese fries would be good. This instructable is how I came up with a way to do exactly that! I was happy because the first time around was a success which does not happen very often when you create a recipe. Put on that apron and let's fry some spuds!
Step 1: Ingredients
1/4 Cup Crumbled bacon
1/4 Cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 Cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 Cup flour
1 Beaten egg
Salt and Pepper according to taste
1/2 - 1 Red bell pepper
You will also need a small heart shaped cookie cutter, paper towels and kitchen scissors are helpful.
Step 2: Preparations
Cut into wedges almost 1/4 inch thick.
Cut out heart shapes in the tops of the wedges as shown, or just cut out large hearts and fry them.
Soak wedges in cold water in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Step 3: Breading
Mix the bacon and the cheese together.
Dip the chilled potatoes into the flour.
Then dip them into the beaten egg.
Then bread them with the bacon and Parmesan cheese mixture.
Then dip them back into the beaten egg.
Then dip them into the bread crumbs and place on a plate.
Step 4: Fry the Potatoes or Bake
Cook the fries until golden brown.
Place them on a plate with paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
Place the potatoes into a shallow pan with a little oil and bake in the oven at 350 for about 30-45 minutes. You can add the bacon and Parmesan cheese a few minutes before serving or omit altogether.
Step 5: Cut Out the Heart Shapes
Slice the bell pepper.
Remove the seeds and membrane.
Cut out the same shapes as you did for the potatoes.
Step 6: Insert the Hearts
