Imagine a perfectly fluffy baked potato topped with bacon, cheddar, chives, and sour cream. Now imagine if that fluffy potato crispy on the outside and baked into a convenient breakfast casserole. This Loaded French Fry Breakfast Casserole is all of that. Instead of a regular potato, I’m using Grown In Idaho Super Crispy Shoestring Fries. Grown In Idaho Super Crispy fries are the perfect ingredient for loading up with toppings and baking in casseroles.

Grown In Idaho Super Crispy Shoestring Fries– The crispy outside and tender inside make them perfect to withstand the creamy baked eggs.
Eggs
Milk

Sour cream– Sour cream adds more richness to the eggs than milk alone. It also adds to the taste complimenting the fries and cheese.
Chives– The chives add an herby onion flavor that is different from the white onion. I highly recommend using them.
White onion
Thick sliced bacon
Cheddar cheese– I’m using a cheddar jack blend but you can use any cheese that you prefer.

How to make cheesy bacon French fry casserole

shoestring fries in a cast-iron skillet

Start by preparing the fries using a cast-iron skillet. I like using cast iron in the oven for even heat distribution. Preheat the oven to 425° and crisp the fries for 18-20 minutes or until crispy, stirring halfway through to ensure maximum crispiness. (Alternatively, you can place them into an air fryer for 10-12 minutes at 360°. )

Grown In Idaho Super Crispy Shoestring Fries will remain firm as the casserole bakes. You can also prepare your bacon in the oven while the fries cook. Remove the slices at around 20 minutes.

While the French fries bake, beat the eggs with the white onion, chives, cheese, sour cream, milk, salt, and pepper.

Serving suggestions

Serve the casserole with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkling of chives, and fresh sliced tomatoes. I also recommend serving them with a batch of Flaky Southern Biscuits or Cheddar Drop Biscuits.
