Check out this easy copycat recipe – Outback’s Aussie Cheese Fries.

Do you ever go to a restaurant, fall in love with one of their dishes and say, “I have to try that at home!”. That is exactly what I did when I ate Outback’s Aussie Cheese Fries. I as sitting there, dipping these yummy seasoned cheese fries in ranch sauce when Reece said, “You need to make these at home.” So, what do I do? I start taking smaller bites of the Aussie Cheese Fries.

What is it that I tasted?

Salt – check

Pepper – check

Garlic – check

Cheese – check

Onion – maybe…

Parmesan – No…not Parmesan

Bacon – Oh yea….check that.

So, to the dismay of Reece and Betsy (**cough, cough**), I went about trying to copy this recipe which took me several tries. Although, I must say, by my third or fourth try I was getting tired of making homemade fries, so I just started using frozen fires to try and get the seasoning correct. I know – HORRORS! How could I use frozen fries?! Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Now, I love homemade fries way better than frozen fries, but sometimes you just don’t have the time to cut, peel, cook, fry, etc. Sometimes, you have to grab that bag of freezer fries.

But finally, on the 5th try, I think I got the recipe down for Outback’s Aussie Cheese Fries. Although, to just be sure, I think I will have to head out to Outback to find out for myself šŸ™‚ .
