Cheese Fries

3 unpeeled russet potatoes
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack
4 to 6 cups oil
3 slices cooked bacon
sliced green onions
1 cup shredded cheddar
ranch dressing or sour cream

Slice potatoes into wide slices about 1/4 inch thick and 3/4 inch wide. Keep potatoes covered in water until ready to fry so they don't turn brown. Heat oil to about 350 degrees. Dry the potato slices on paper towels and fry for about 1 minute. Remove potatoes from oil until cool, about 10 minutes. When cooled, fry them for about 5 more minutes or until light golden brown. Drain. This sounds like a lot of trouble but they are so much better when you fry them twice like this. Preheat oven to 375. Arrange fries on oven safe plate or baking sheet. Sprinkle cheese and onions over the fries. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle over cheese. Bake fries for about 5 minutes or until cheese has melted. Serve with ranch dressing or sour cream.
