When I was a high-schooler, everyone from our youth group would go to Knowlwood's after church on Sunday nights to hang out and get a bite to eat. I always ordered Irish nachos to split with a friend. Why? Because they were delicious and one of the cheapest things on the menu. What are Irish nachos? Well, they're nachos made with French fries instead of tortilla chips. The Irish nachos I used to eat were covered in cheese with bacon bits and sliced green onions scattered about and a dollop of sour cream on top. I've changed things up a bit. These are as versatile as regular nachos. You can put on whatever tickles your fancy. I try to have a source of protein (besides the cheese) to round things out. The batch pictured above has sweet Italian chicken sausage; a winner!
