Do you ever just want to buy a large order of French fries and devour them as you’re driving by the multitude of fast food places on your daily commute? Yeah, me too. Then I feel guilty later for indulging.
I don’t understand how one serving can have so many calories! But I certainly understand what it’s starting to do to my body at this age… That’s why I love this loaded French fry casserole.
You get so much more in this dish than you would a quick stop at one of those places, it’s like a burger and fries all in one. Plus, it’s a fun meal!
More fun equals a happy household and my minions were thrilled with this one, even my big husband minion. I recommend making a double batch for a larger crowd – it’ll be gone before you know it!

When I dished this out my family was like, “what the…” yeah they wondered what concoction I’d come up with now. I told them what it was and they happily dug in.
I think they were confused with the condiment and topping selection. I’d heated up a bowl of chili and put out chopped onion, ketchup, mustard, and even pickles.
Once they realized what the point was they were having fun with it. I actually used waffle fries because I wanted them to be able to pick them up, but with the soup they were pretty soft. Forks it was, but there were no complaints!
