Ingredients
  • 1 20 -to-22-ounce package frozen waffle fries
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mild yellow cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (about 2 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pimientos
  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 scallions, sliced
Directions

Bake the waffle fries as the label directs. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 4 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels, then chop into bite-size pieces.

Combine the cheddar, mozzarella, cornstarch, pimientos and mustard powder in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Transfer to a medium saucepan; add 1/3 cup water and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the cheese melts and the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sour cream and season with salt and pepper.

Divide the waffle fries among plates; top with the cheese sauce, bacon and scallions.
