Baked Sheet Pan “Street Fries”

Scroll down to content

While my friend was visiting over my birthday weekend we stopped at a local Mexican restaurant for some tacos. We ended up getting the worst Brussels sprouts we had ever eaten (not cooked enough?!) and we each had a taco.

Also on the appetizer menu were “street fries” that sounded suspiciously like fries covered in nacho toppings. Interestingly enough, we had planned on making fries at some point during the weekend so decided to try making our own “street fries.”

Street fries are a thing though you cannot find a definition for them on Wikipedia, which makes you wonder how big of a thing they actually are. On one blog, I found a description of street fries as being the kind of fries you find sold all over Europe, presumably on the street. I haven’t been to Europe in ages so I wouldn’t know if that claim is true or not, presumably it is. But I would challenge that to say that with the invention of the food truck, street fries are sold everywhere. Even right here in the little Ole US of A.

At any rate, we copied the topping ideas straight from the taco place’s menu and planted them right on top the best baked crinkly cut fries you will ever find (Lamb Weston). I have dubbed Lamb Weston “Shake Shack” fries because in my opinion they taste just as good as the fries you buy at Shake Shack, but better, they are baked. They turn out perfectly crispy and plain delicious. These opinions are 100% my own. Lamb Weston has not paid me to say this. Lamb Weston has not provided me free product to test (though incidentally according to their website you can request a free sample. I’m not sure how that would work). I stumbled upon these fries once when they were on super sale at the grocery store and now I keep them stocked in my freezer.


  • 1 package Lamb Weston Super Crispy Crinkle Cut fries
  • Shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterrey jack, etc.)
  • Guacamole or sliced avocado
  • pico de gallo
  • sour cream
  • chives or green onions
  • fresh cilantro
  • sliced fresh jalapeno (or the canned stuff if you must)
  • cooked meat such as shredded chicken or beef, pork or even bacon crumbles (optional)


  1. Cook fries according to package directions.
  2. Once fries are cooked to perfection, remove from oven and cover in shredded cheese. Return to the oven and allow cheese to melt completely. This only takes a few minutes.
  3. Remove potatoes from oven and cover in your favorite toppings.
  4. Serve and eat immediately.
