Breakfast Cheese Fries

After a month (yes, it took me basically a month) to be fully moved in, 10 days in Europe, a replenished bank account, a week of a non-processed foods and no meat detox, I’m back with this breakfast cheese fries recipe. Seriously couldn’t be further away from non-processed and no meat.

My new apartment is so cute and quaint and all my friends and family know how obsessed with it I am. My couch finally came in on Monday and thank god for the FedEx people, because they delivered my couch directly to my door. I honestly didn’t know how I was going to push a 115 lb box up a flight of stairs into my apartment. It would have ended in a complete disaster, probably a broken bone or two.

My kitchen is alllllmost set up, I’m waiting on a power drill to put together my kitchen island so I can have more room to cook and hold all 1 million of my kitchen gadgets. My room looks like the worst tornado of the century came through it, but that’s future Katie’s issue.

Staying in the present, I have these phenomenal Breakfast Cheese Fries recipe. Because, let’s be honest, on a Saturday or Sunday morning after a long night, you deserve a fat pile of fries with melted cheese, bacon and eggs. Still being honest, I used store-bought frozen french fries and heated them up in the oven. Homemade fries were just a little too much effort for my Saturday morning self (and yes, I had already had like 3 cups of coffee).

If you want to make it easy, you can just top the fries with shredded cheese, as I did. However, when (not if, when) I make these again, I am going to definitely make a cheese sauce for the fries. Here’s a recipe for 5 minute nacho cheese sauce.


You can also add breakfast sausage if that’s what you fancy over bacon, you can add turkey bacon (but I mean you’re making cheese fries, that’s kinda like adding a Diet Coke to your “make it a large” Big Mac meal), you truly can top these with whatever breakfast/omelette/skillet essentials you like.


Breakfast Cheese Fries


  • 1 bag frozen french fries
  • 3 cups shredded cheese, I used sharp cheddar and cheddar jack
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 4 eggs, sunny side up


  1. bake your fries according to the directions on the bag
  2. while your fries are baking, cook your bacon until crispy. once the grease is cooled, throw away only some of it. you want enough grease on the pan to cook your eggs in.
  3. once fries are cooked according to the directions on the bag, set your oven to 350 if it isn't already
  4. place half the fries in a skillet, pan or dish. over half the fries top with 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese and half your bacon. top that with the rest of the fries, and place the rest of the cheese and bacon on top.
  5. place in the oven for 10 minutes
  6. while your fries are baking, fry up 4 eggs sunny-side up or over easy.
  7. after 10 minutes, set your oven to broil for 1-2 minutes.
  8. after your cheese fries broil for 1-2 minutes, take out of the oven, top with your 4 eggs, crack those yolks and let the oozy goodness drizzle all into the fries, and enjoy!
