Vegan Bacon Cheese Fries

Baked (or air fried) fries. Meets homemade vegan cheese sauce. Meets cashew bacon bits. Meets PURE HEAVEN IN YOUR MOUTH. Seriously, look at that platter of deliciousness.

Smothered fries are definitely one of my favorite meals. And this cheese sauce is usually present. Sometimes I dollop some salsa on them, too, or some refried beans. But if you’re craving bacon cheese fries, this vegan version will totally hit the spot.

Cashew bacon bits

Unlike traditional bacon cheese fries that come from a vendor at the state fair, these ones are healthy and won’t leave you feeling like crud after you devour them. The fries are baked on parchment paper with no oil. The cheese and bacon bits are also oil-free. WOOT.

If you’re following the guidelines of Dr. McDougall’s book The Starch Solution, this is totally compliant – and you can easily omit the salt if you want. And hey, if you’re not, this is just a really tasty recipe that happens to be healthy…dare I say nutritious.

Meal Prep

This is a great meal to prep ahead. Pop the already-baked fries in the oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes (or until they are warm and get their crunch back), warm up the cheese, and assemble! I can make 3 meals out of this recipe (1 russet potato per serving.) Check out these jackfruit enchilada bowls for another meal prep idea!
