Ingredients for Breakfast Fries

A complete list of ingredients and amounts can be found in the recipe card below.

Frozen fries: Choosing high-quality frozen fries can save time while providing a delicious base for your baked breakfast fries.
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese: Go for freshly shredded cheese for better melting and flavor. Sharp cheddar adds a rich, tangy taste that complements the other ingredients.
Bacon: Choose thick-cut bacon for a meatier bite. Cook bacon until crispy, and then chop into small pieces.
Large eggs: I like to work with eggs at room temperature.
Mayonnaise: Use a high-quality mayonnaise for the best creamy texture and flavor. This will serve as the base for the adobo sauce mixture, adding a smooth, rich consistency.
Adobo sauce from the can: This sauce brings a smoky, spicy kick. Adjust the amount to suit your heat preference. Mix with mayonnaise to create a flavorful drizzle over the fries.
Lime juice: Freshly squeezed lime juice adds a zesty brightness that cuts through the richness of the cheese and bacon, balancing the overall flavor.
Green onions: Finely chop the green onions for a fresh, sharp garnish. They add a pop of color and a mild onion flavor. Red onion is a good alternative if needed.

Bake the fries: Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place the frozen fries in an oven-safe skillet and bake for 10 minutes at this medium heat.

Add the eggs: Crack the eggs over the fries and bake again for 10 minutes or until the egg whites are set.

More veggies: Onions, bell peppers, zucchini.
Meaty ideas: Canadian bacon, breakfast sausage, turkey bacon.
Yummy toppings: Top with avocado slices and/or fresh pico de gallo.

Top Tips

Spice level: When making the chipotle mayonnaise, you can use as little or as much adobo sauce as you want. You can even cut a chipotle up and throw it in the sauce for more heat.
Choose quality fries: Use high-quality frozen fries or make your own for the best texture and flavor. If making homemade fries, cut them evenly to ensure uniform cooking.
Achieve maximum crispiness: Bake or air fry the frozen fries until they are crispy and golden brown. This helps them hold up better under the toppings and provides a satisfying crunch.
Serve immediately: Breakfast fries are best enjoyed fresh and hot. Serve them immediately after assembly to ensure the fries remain crispy and the cheese is perfectly melted.
