I love food dips. From queso to most salad dressings, I love dipping my food. That’s probably why nachos are one of my favorite dishes. When I was a kid I used to dip my french fries in my ice cream! Yum. I also have a love for hosting my family and friends. I combined my two loves to put together this fun Loaded French Fry Bar. It is no surprise that I love loaded french fries.

The options for toppings on your French Fry Bar are endless. I love loaded french fries so I can get a little crazy with my toppings. For this party food bar I went with queso, ground sausage, shredded cheese, sliced black olives, and avocado ranch.

To keep your guests’ fingers out of the fry bowl place a set of party tongs for easy plating of the fries. You can serve your loaded french fries on a plate or in a bowl. If you are serving a younger crowd a bowl may be less messy.

How to Set Up a French Fry Bar


  1. Question: If looking to serve fries at a birthday party using this set-up, how do you recommend keeping the fries warm? My crowd will be 50+ people.

    1. I would suggest using the food warmers that you can purchase at Walmart that are either electric or use a candle underneath to keep the platter warm. Another great option is to put the fries in a slow-cooker on the ‘keep warm’ setting after baking in the oven.
