Do It Healthier at Home
This is just one more example of how creating a dish at home is often healthier than ordering it out. The cheese fries you get at a fast-food restaurant are usually made with that artificial orange cheese sauce. While it may be tasty, it's also full of chemicals and fat and likely won't leave you feeling good after you've eaten it. This recipe, which is made with real fat-free cheese, is a much better option!
