DIRECTIONS

  • Cut potatoes into 1/4 by 1/4-inch matchstick pieces and soak in cold water, overnight. Dry thoroughly before frying.
  • In a deep-sided skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 350 degrees F. There should be enough oil to cover potatoes completely.
  • Fry potatoes in oil for about 4 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove fries from oil using strainer or tongs and let fries drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place the fries on a cookie sheet and top them with the cheese. Place in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese has melted to your liking.
  • While cheese melts, make the gravy:.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter and add flour to make a roux.
  • While whisking often, cook the roux on medium-low heat until it is medium-deep brown in color.
  • Whisk in beef broth slowly until it is all incorporated.
  • Continue to cook, whisking often until gravy has thickened.
  • Add black pepper.
  • If you need to thin the gravy, whisk in additional beef stock or water.
  • Remove fries from oven, top with gravy and serve.
