Cheese Fries

10 Nov

It’s a common fact that everybody loves the Cheese Fries from Kentucky Fried Chicken. And what about the Salsa Cheese Dip from Long John Silver’s? You have got to dunk those chunky fries or even the crunchy shrimp in that sinful cheesy dip 😉

This recipe is by no means an exact replica of what you can get from these two fast food restaurants. But nonetheless, it’s good enough to be served at a home party (or in my case, feed the family their Sunday lunch!). So, here’s my rendition of Cheese Fries: delicious and creamy melted cheese, drizzled over golden fries, topped with mayonnaise and fresh spring onions – your prefect cheesy snack treat!

Ingredients

  • 1 sack frozen French fries, any brand or shape – crinkle cut, thin cut, steak cut, waffle fries – prepared to package directions
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 250 gm shredded KRAFT Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 cup tomato ketchup

Directions

Place a sauce pot on the stove and heat it over medium heat. Add butter and melt it. Add the flour and stir. Cook butter and flour together for 1 minute or so. This is called “roux” and it helps to thicken up sauces. Use a whisk to stir as the milk goes into the pot. Keep stirring until the milk gets thicker. Use a wooden spoon or heat-safe spatula to stir in the cheese. When all of the cheese melts, take the sauce off the heat and stir in the tomato ketchup.

Pour the sauce over the fries, squirt mayonnaise generously and then add freshly chopped spring onions. Or serve the sauce on the side if you like.
