Easy to make with two types of cheeses and a little heat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour peanut oil into a deep, heavy-bottomed stockpot or deep fryer, to a depth of 4 or 5 inches.
  2. Preheat oil to 350 degrees F.
  3. Peel potatoes and cut into 1/3 inch thick rounds using a crinkle french fry cutter.
  4. Fry potatoes until golden brown and cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel-lined plates.
  6. Season the fries lightly with Creole seasoning and salt.
  7. Place fries in a wide, shallow casserole dish or baking sheet and sprinkle with the shredded cheddar and monterey jack cheeses, layering the fries and the cheese.
  8. (If you want the cheese to be completely melted, bake in a 350 degree F oven for about 4 minutes after layering the fries and cheese.) Serve immediately.

Very nice recipe for Cheese fries!! I enjoyed making this recipe for a change from regular deep fried french fries that I usually make. Simple to come together for a quick meal with a burger. Its a keeper in the burger and fry book! Thanks for sharing!

Delicious recipe the entire family liked. I cheated and used frozen fries due to time constraints, and used medium cheddar in place of mild. The spice mix adds a lot of flavor to the fries, I did cut the cayenne pepper down to a tsp as I'm the only spice lover in the family. Still came out with a subtle kick. Will be making this often for a treat, thanks for posting!
