    A Jersey diner staple -- great for when you're feeling extra sinful or late at night when you need to sober up.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (28 ounce) package frozen steak-style French fries (waffle and shoe string cut also work great)
    • 1 (15 ounce) jar Cheez Whiz (or your favorite packaged cheese sauce)
    • 1 (10 ounce) jar prepared gravy (chicken or beef gravy)
    • salt, to taste
    • pepper, to taste

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Arrange steak fries in a single layer in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. baking sheet.
    3. 3
      Salt and pepper as desired.
    4. 4
      Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. (Check the frozen fries' packaging for alternate baking directions).
    5. 5
      About 5 minutes before the fries are finished baking, pour the gravy in a small pot and warm on the stove over medium heat, stirring frequently.
    6. 6
      Empty the cheese sauce in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with a sheet of paper towel (to protect against splattering). Heat the sauce on high for 30 seconds, then stop and stir the sauce.
    7. 7
      Repeat microwaving the cheese sauce on high for 30-second intervals for about 2 to 3 total minutes. (You want to heat it enough that it becomes easily pourable).
    8. 8
      Take fries out of the oven and place on a large platter.
    9. 9
      Pour gravy over the fries.
    10. 10
      Then pour on the cheese sauce. Add as much cheese and gravy as you want -- some like their disco fries drier; others like them drowning.

      Really - the Garden State and home of all kinds of delicious local and ethnic food and NJ gets disco fries - made of all fake, pre-processed ingredients??!!! Are you freaking kidding me? We've all heard of french fries with brown gravy and cheese sauce, but have never heard this called disco fries.<br/><br/>Kristine, you should be ashamed of yourself.

      I was born and raised in New Jersey and never heard of Disco Fries before! So, my guess is that they are a North Jersey thing, kind of like Taylor Ham, because I've never seen them in South Jersey. Gravy fries and cheese fries I first saw out west. And, cheese fries can be had in every pizzeria, but gravy AND cheese??? NEVER!

      Since moving away from the tri-state area, I haven't had disco fries. I'm so happy to have a recipe for them now! Thanks for posting this delicious recipe!
