Bangin’ Pimento Cheese Fries

Bangin' Pimento Cheese Fries


  • for each pound of fries, about 1/3 cup of Pimento cheese, store-bought or homemade (see note)1
  • Store-bought or homemade fries

Highly recommended for the Pimento Cheese: either Tequila Spiked Pimento Cheese or Roasted Red Pepper & Jalapeno Spread.


Preheat oven to 425 or 450 degrees F, following instructions for the french fry you are using. Line a sheet tray with foil.

Spread the french fries on foil-lined rimmed baking sheets in a single layer, allowing a little space between each fry. Bake according to instructions, until crispy, turning once.

When fries are crispy, without being overly fussy and working quickly so fries stay hot, dollop the pimento cheese in small bits over the fries, leaving space between the dollops. The cheese will spread as it melts.

Broil 4 to 6 inches (probably second shelf down) from the heat for 3 to 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and very lightly browned in spots. Move or turn tray as necessary and watch closely. Do not over broil.

Serve right immediately.
