Seasoned Bacon and Cheese Oven Fries with BBQ Fry Sauce

I am seriously dying looking at these pictures right now. If I could eat an entire pan of anything it would be oven fries. And when you add cheese and bacon on top, along with a BBQ fry sauce to dip in?? I'm a goner.
These are so flavorful, gluttonous and so worth your time. We made these for dinner because well, sometimes fries sound like the best and easiest option.
I have been making oven fries for years, but these bad boys are the real deal. So good and they would be perfect as an appetizer for any party.
And this BBQ Fry Sauce, which is technically just bbq sauce and mayo mixed together, is the best fry sauce you'll ever eat. So much better than the ketchup and mayo combo. Can you tell I'm from Utah? ;) Anyway, make these for a crowd and you'll make some new friends. I guarantee it.
Spiced Bacon and Cheese Oven Fries with BBQ Fry Sauce
Adapted from Our Best Bites
2 large russet potatoes, washed
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1-2 cups shredded Colby jack cheese
6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Mix spices in a medium-sized bowl. Pour in olive oil and combine well.
3. Cut each potato into wedges/fries. (I usually get about 50-70 small fries out of each potato.)
4. Add potato wedges into seasoning/oil bowl and toss until coated.
5. Pour wedges into a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
6. Bake for 40 minutes.
7. Remove from oven and sprinkle on cheese and bacon. Turn your oven to broil and broil fries until cheese is melted. Be sure to watch carefully so fries don’t burn. (It should take about a minute depending on your oven temp.)
8. Serve warm and dip in BBQ fry sauce. (see below)

BBQ Fry Sauce
1/4 cup bbq sauce (I would pick a sweet one)
