Irish Nachos

 St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner and we like to celebrate with a few fun Irish-inspired foods, like these delicious Irish Nachos.  This recipe reminds me of a pub-style app that is made with thinly sliced potatoes, but we love making ours with frozen french fries.

Typically Irish Nachos are made with the same toppings that regular nachos come with.  We like to use shredded sharp cheddar, bacon, green onion, and sour cream, which reminds me more of what goes on a twice-baked potato.  The best part is you can make these babies however YOU like!

Irish nachos were created in the 1980s by Randy Ford, the owner of J. Gilligan's restaurant (Arlington) where he claims his invention was "the luck of the Irish."  I think we were the lucky ones, Randy Ford!
