  • 1 lb potato fries I used McCain, about 1 1/2
  • 6 slices bacon chopped and fried
  • 1/2 cup banana peppers
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1 medium tomato chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

For Gravy

  • 1 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup beef broth low sodium
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 450 F degrees.
  • Place the potato fries in a single layer on a baking sheet, no need to grease the baking sheet. Bake the fries for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden and crispy.
  • In the meantime, prepare the gravy. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the flour and whisk until it becomes paste and it slightly turns brown. Add the beef broth a little bit at a time, whisking constantly until all the broth has been added. Continue to cook for a another minute or so until the gravy thickens. Season with salt and pepper.
  • To assemble the fries, place the fries in a plate, drizzle generously with gravy, top with bacon, banana peppers, green onions, tomatoes and parsley, then finish off with a drizzle of mayonnaise.


  1. To thin out the mayonnaise so that you can drizzle it easier, whisk it with a couple tbsp of milk. You can also use the mayonnaise as a dip.
  2. This recipe would be great on yam/sweet potato fries as well.
  3. You can use 1 tsp of corn starch instead of flour to make the gravy gluten free
  4. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
