Loaded Steak Fries
These Loaded Steak Fries are topped with gooey cheese and perfectly grilled steak to make the perfect party appetizer recipe!
I hope you guys are ready for this because last weekend Melinda made one of the best party appetizers that I have had in awhile. She took some of my favorite things, steak, cheese, french fries, and ranch dressing, and she layered them together to make this awesome platter of Loaded Steak Fries. Seriously guys, I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
We are so excited to be partnering with Litehouse Dressing today to bring your these amazing fries! All thoughts and opinions are 100% our own.
Her Loaded Steak Fries recipe requires a few very important ingredients, amazing french fries, a perfectly grilled piece of flank steak, fresh cheese (don’t buy that shredded stuff!), and Litehouse Homestyle Ranch Dressing. I’m a total ranch dressing snob so when I say Litehouse Homestyle Ranch Dressing is my favorite I mean it. It is a delicious combination of fresh herb and vegetable flavors and it was recently declared the best-tasting ranch dressing by consumers during a blind sensory test against competing brands!! I always have some in my fridge. I use it on my salads and carry it to work to dip my veggies in (Mmmm, the Litehouse Homestyle Ranch Dressing is so good on cherry tomatoes!!). Litehouse Dressing is made with real ingredients like buttermilk and real blue cheese and since it’s cold it goes perfect on a cool, crisp salad. You’ll find it in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, usually right near the fresh produce. If you want to give it a try Litehouse is making it easy.

Salads are great, we have them for dinner a couple of times a week, but when I’m at a party, sitting out on the deck, chillaxing and talking to friends I want to indulge a little. Hellllooo, Loaded Steak Fries! Melinda cooked the perfect flank steak with beautiful grill marks and just enough pink left in the middle. She baked french fries and put them in a big cast iron skillet, then topped them with freshly grated cheese. You’ve got to go with freshly grated it melts the best! She used cheddar cheese but I think these would be awesome with a Gruyere cheese too. The skillet went into the oven for about 7 minutes and came out with melted cheese oozing all over the fries. She topped them with her diced up flank steak, some fresh tomatoes, a little sprinkle of cilantro, and a generous drizzle of thick, creamy, Litehouse Homestyle Ranch Dressing. You could use Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese too. That Bleu cheese flavor would go so well with the steak but like I said I’m a die-hard ranch fan so everyone humored me and let me have my way :).
We made quick work of that skillet full of Loaded Steak Fries and there were no regrets…except that the skillet was empty.
