Loaded Steak Fries

I'm not a big fan of restaurant loaded fries, because normally they are to cheesy for me.  Yes, I said it.  To cheesy!   When making your own, you can control the cheese.  So if you like a lot of cheese, add some more.  I also like to make my fries, but you can buy store bought.  It just won't be as good.

(serves 4)

*5-6 russet potatoes for steak fries, or use 1 (32 ounce) frozen steak fries
*8 slices bacon, cut into bite size pieces and cooked until crisp
*2 teaspoons butter, melted
*1 tablespoon olive oil
*1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
*1/4 teaspoon onion powder
*1 teaspoon paprika
*1/4 teaspoon cumin
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
*3/4-1cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
*1/4-1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
*3 green onions, chopped
*1/4 cup banana peppers (optional)
*2-3 tablespoon sour cream

~Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
~Cut the potatoes in equal wedges (peel only if you want to).
~In a small bowl, whisk  butter, olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper.
~Mix potato wedges into mix.
~Pour potatoes onto a large baking sheet or a large cast iron skillet.
~Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until crispy and golden in color.
~Remove from oven.
~Sprinkle cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese over the top of the potatoes.
~Place under broiler for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese melts.
~Remove from oven and sprinkle with bacon, green onions, sour cream and banana peppers.
**dip in ranch or bleu cheese dressing can even make it better!
