Gluten Free Cowboy Fries

This is going to be a hit with your meat and potato crowd.  I found this early on in my gluten free searching and it quickly has become a regular.  This is a dish that hits on a cold night, when you want junk food, or you just need something quick and easy.




If you like peppers or mushrooms you could saute them with the onions and garlic.  That would add more flavor and bulk to this meal.  Make sure to salt and pepper while it’s cooking!




The french fries are still frozen.  Make sure if you choose to not use Ore-Ida that you check the package about ingredients.  Not all frozen french fries are gluten free.  Some of Ore-Ida’s have gluten as well.




Cover the fries with your cooked meat.  If you have given up beef you can use ground turkey just the same with all the seasonings.  We often use ground turkey.




Top with your cheeses.  We will use Pepper Jack sometimes for a little extra kick.  This one in the photos has Pepper Jack in it!  You could mix up the cheeses really.  If you like spicy you could add some sliced jalapeno.




Bake according to the package for the fries.  If it says 18-20 do the longer time (the 20 minutes).  If the cheese isn’t melted or melted to your liking then bake a few minutes more.




Dish up and enjoy!  If you are a parent and think ok great but I need to get something like a vegetable in there you could serve a salad on the side or try to put some green beans in before you top it with cheese.  Or if it’s your kids you are trying to get veggies into if they have a favorite just cook it and serve it on the side.

This is such an easy dish to make. You could put it together and take it to a friend’s house and bake it there. It would be great for potlucks. Great for picky eaters. Great comfort food.

This is a dish that’s totally customize-able to your or your families tastes.

This is one I’d recommend keeping in your recipe box.
