As much fun as it is to eat a pancake or doughnut in the morning, there are times when heartier dishes are in order. Enter breakfast disco fries. Like breakfast nachos, the disco fries are a massive meal that’s fit for a crowd, yet easy enough to make on a lazy Sunday morning (probably without even needing to hit the grocery store).

Rip open a package of frozen french fries (or heck, use those leftover takeout fries from last night), dump them on a sheet pan, and bake until crispy. Meanwhile, fry up a bunch of bacon. Don’t toss the drippings though, you’ll need them for the next step: a zingy red eye gravy with beef stock, tomato juice, onions, and coffee—this stuff could actually create world peace if used properly. Fry a few eggs, and melt some shredded cheese over the cooked fries. Top the fries with the fries eggs and a heavy pour of gravy.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bake French fries according to package directions.

Step 2

Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium, turning occasionally, until crispy, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to drain, reserving drippings in skillet. Break bacon strips into pieces. Add onion to skillet; cook, stirring often, until tender and translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Add flour, and cook, stirring constantly, until incorporated, about 2 minutes. Stir in milk, broth, coffee, and tomato juice; cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper. Remove from heat, and cover to keep warm.

Step 3

Sprinkle cheese over French fries. Return to oven, and bake at 425°F until cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes. Top evenly with fried eggs, bacon, and gravy. Sprinkle with chives, and serve immediately.
