Yearwood raided his pantry and gathered ingredients that would sync up with each other to create a killer curly fries appetizer.

The sweet-salty-salty combination will be a hit.

Ingredients include frozen seasoned curly fries, a blend of Colby and Monterey Jack cheeses, cornstarch, half and half, ranch dressing, bacon and fried onions.

However, a hint of brightness comes from fresh cilantro and the warmth of Sriracha, drizzled on top.

Preheat your oven and cook the curly fries until just crispy.

In a bowl, combine cheese and cornstarch in small saucepan. Add half and half.

Cook this mixture over medium heat, whisking constantly until smooth.

Place the cooked fries on a serving platter. Pour the cheese sauce over the potatoes, followed by the ranch dressing, bacon, onions and cilantro. Add siracha as a final ingredient to taste.

Pair this salty appetizer with a sweet finish

A fan of sweet and savory combinations, Yearwood has developed a wonderfully sweet recipe for Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars that combine childhood taste in a baked bar. These have a cake-like consistency and just enough sweetness to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Yearwood later admitted in an interview with hello america that a favorite party inspired these bars.

She shared her favorite comfort food-turned-dessert recipe with viewers of the morning news series in December 2021.

Yearwood found inspiration for the treat in the holiday movie, A Charlie Brown Christmas.

“I love it because everyone loves peanut butter and jelly. We’re all kids at heart,” Yearwood said.

“And also Garth and I walked down the aisle to the music of A Charlie Brown Christmas, so it’s very sentimental for me. It’s very Christmas for me. It’s just special to me,” she explained.

The full recipe for Trisha Yearwood’s Loaded Curly Fry Nachos is available on the Food Network website.

Trisha’s Southern Kitchen airs Saturday noon on The Food Network.
