This heartier version of cheese fries offers all the tempting tastes of a juicy cheeseburger and fries combo, but you'll need a fork to enjoy them! It's perfect for a party or just for a fun and novel weeknight meal!

Makes 4 to 6 servings

1 (32-ounce) bag frozen French fries
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup sliced dill pickles
3/4 cup cheese sauce, warmed

  1. Place frozen French fries on baking sheet and bake according to package directions.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the ground beef over high heat until browned, about 6 to 8 minutes; drain off excess fat.

  3. Stir in the ketchup, mustard, salt, and pepper; mix well and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through.

  4. Place French fries on a large platter, spoon the meat mixture over the fries, sprinkle with the onion and pickles, and evenly drizzle cheese sauce over everything. Serve immediately.

NOTE:?Feel free to drizzle extra ketchup over the top, if you'd like.
