Hillbilly Fries Recipe

Hillbilly Fries
These hillbilly fries are loaded with country gravy, cheese, bacon and green onion. This recipe makes things easy by using frozen French fries but I like to make my own country gravy. If you want to save even more time you could always use the packaged stuff. These fries make a great appetizer and are perfect to prepare for the upcoming football season. Enjoy.
