Cheese Sauce Fries Recipe

Cheese sauce fries are a must-have for any French fry lover’s home menu. These easy, creamy and delicious fries can be made in just minutes.

The base of this sauce is a roux – a mixture of butter and flour that’s cooked to remove the raw flour taste. Then milk is slowly poured in, whisking constantly to ensure that no lumps form.

Ingredients

Cheese sauce is a creamy and delicious way to add a burst of flavor to your favorite foods. It can be used on many different dishes, including deep-fried French fries, oven-baked or air fryer potatoes, roasted veggies, burgers and more!

This recipe is a favorite for game day, parties or simply when you want a quick and easy snack. Crispy french fries are topped with melted cheese, smoky bacon and fresh herbs for a hearty appetizer that is sure to please!

To make the sauce, start by making a roux using butter and flour. This is an essential part of this cheese sauce recipe and it helps to thicken the sauce and create a rich and creamy consistency.

Once the roux is prepared, it can be added to a saucepan with milk and half and half. Adding these liquids in slow dribbles will help the sauce to come together and prevent lumps. Once the sauce is simmering, add shredded cheddar a handful at a time and mix until the cheese is melted into the sauce.

Then, stir in a small amount of vinegar to help make a glossy sheen and add some hot sauce if you want to add some spice. You can use any percentage of milk that you prefer, but if possible, use full-fat milk to make the sauce smooth and creamier.

When the roux has thickened and the cheese is completely melted, add the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.

You can make this sauce ahead of time and reheat it over medium heat, or use it as a dip for your favorite chips, pretzels or other snacks! This recipe is also good served with grilled or baked chicken, shrimp, steak or even as a topping for rice and pasta.

You can also serve these cheese fries with ground meat, sour cream and diced tomatoes for a quick and easy Mexican-inspired dish. Or top with a pound of elbow macaroni for a quick mac and cheese. This dish is great for a snack or as a main meal and is ready in 30 minutes!

Preparation

Cheese sauce is a popular condiment that adds some serious zing to your favorite food. This dish is easy to make and can be paired with anything from burgers to french fries.

The key to making this cheesy concoction is to get it to the right temperature and texture. Ideally you should keep the sauce warm until it is time to pour it on top of your fries.

To do this you can use a microwave or a saucepan over low heat. Be sure to whisk the sauce frequently to prevent lumps from forming.

While you’re at it, consider using non-dairy milk or a lite version of traditional milk for a tastier result!

You can also try adding a dash of liquid smoke for an extra kick.

The best thing about this recipe is that it uses ingredients you probably have in your kitchen already! Besides, you can serve it as is for a party of one or make a big batch for the entire fam.

Cooking

Once your fries are baked, you can begin assembling them. You can choose to load them up with ground meat, sour cream and diced red onions or any other toppings you desire. If you are feeling fancy, you can also top them with pickled jalapenos or crumbled bacon.

To make the best cheese sauce, you will need shredded cheese (preferably fresh), milk and cornstarch. The milk will help to thicken the sauce and the cornstarch will add a nice texture. It’s best to use milk with a higher fat percentage for the creamiest sauce. You can also use non-dairy milk like almond or coconut. It’s important to mix the cheese and milk properly so that there are no lumps, otherwise your sauce will be grainy.
