Fully Loaded Dirty Chips

We love these fully loaded dirty chips on a Friday night after a busy week at work. Just like you'd get at the pub with a pint, but far better for you than you might think.

Ingredients

  • 230 g frozen oven chips
  • 2 rashers bacon - I like a good dry-cured back bacon
  • 50 g cheddar cheese - grated
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 spring onions - sliced

Instructions

  • Cook the oven chips according to the packet instructions.
  • While the chips are cooking, cut the bacon into small pieces. Fry in a splash of oil until crispy.
  • Allow the bacon to cool on a piece of kitchen paper on a plate. The kitchen paper absorbs the fat.
  • When the chips are cooked, remove from the oven and transfer to a small, oven proof dish. Cover with the grated cheese and return to the oven for a couple of minutes, just long enough to melt the cheese.
  • When the cheese has melted, remove the dish from the oven. Top the chips with the bacon pieces, the sour cream and the chopped spring onion. Enjoy immediately!

Notes

  • For crispy chips cook them on a mesh tray – they cost just a few pounds and last forever. 
  • It is far easier to snip bacon with a pair of sharp scissors than use a knife.  
  • Add some slices of jalapeno for a kick of heat.
  • If you don't eat pork then use turkey or veggie bacon.  
  • Sprinkle over some paprika or Cajun seasoning with the cheese.
  • Try a different cheese. Stretchy mozzarella, brie, camembert or blue would all be delicious.   
  • If you like cheese and onion, slowly cook some diced onion with the bacon.
