These easy Copycat Jack in the Box Cheesy Potato Wedges are great for a side dish or a snack!
COPYCAT JACK IN THE BOX CHEESY POTATO WEDGES
4 potatoes, cut into wedges
Salt & pepper
1/2 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled very fine
1/2 to 3/4 C shredded cheddar cheese
Sliced green onions, for garnish
Ranch dip, for serving
FOR THE CHEESE SAUCE:
2 T butter
2 T flour
1 C milk
7 American cheese slices
Salt & pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Put the potato wedges on a sheet pan. Drizzle them with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Mix them around with your hands to coat and spread them in a single layer. Bake them for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small pot. Whisk in the flour. Whisk in the milk. Cook until the sauce is thickened and bubbly. Turn the heat down very low and melt in the cheese slices one at a time, whisking until smooth. Season the sauce with salt & pepper, if desired.
Drizzle the cheese sauce over the potatoes and top them with some shredded cheese and green onion slices. Put the pan under the broiler to slightly melt the shredded cheese. Serve with Ranch dip.
