I don't know how these got to being called disco fries. It's poutine, a French-Canadian dish that's been around a long time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (28 ounce) packagefrozen 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) jarprepared gravy (chicken or beef gravy)
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Arrange steak fries in a single layer in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. baking sheet.
  3. Salt and pepper as desired.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. (Check the frozen fries' packaging for alternate baking directions).
  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. 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. 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. Take fries out of the oven and place on a large platter.
  9. Pour gravy over the fries.
  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.
