Lightened Up Loaded Bacon Cheese Fries

Roasted rosemary potatoes smothered in a low-fat cheese sauce and then topped with crumbled low-sodium bacon and fresh green onions. Served with a ranch seasoned sour cream dip. A lighter version of my favorite junk-foody restaurant appetizer!

4
3 medium Russett potatoes, scrubbed
1½ tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary (about 1 2? sprig)
½ cup COLD low-fat milk (plus a little more to thin the sauce if needed)
½ tablespoon cornstarch
½ tablespoon unsalted butter
¾ cup shredded reduced fat cheddar (I like Cabot 50% Sharp Light Cheddar)
4 slices low sodium bacon
½ cup green onions, chopped
Pre-heat the oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pat the potatoes dry and cut them in half lengthwise. Lay each half flat on the cutting board and cut lengthwise again into ?-1/4?...
