DIRECTIONS

  • For the Aussie Chips: Preheat oil to 375 degrees in a deep fryer.
  • Cut potatoes into french fry slices using a vegetable slicer or mandolin. It’s important to use a gadget for the slicing so that the fries will all be the same thickness, and will cook evenly. Submerge all of the sliced potatoes in a large bowl fill with cold water for 30 minutes.
  • Combine all of the seasoning ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Remove potato slices from the water and onto a clean towel. Blot dry.
  • Fry potato slices for 8 to 12 minutes in hot oil until light brown. Drain fries on a rack or paper towels and sprinkle with some of the seasoning. Pile the fries on a plate and serve with ranch dressing on the side, if desired.
  • For the Aussie Cheese Fries: Prepare the clone for the Aussie Chips and arrange the seasoned fries on an oven-safe plate. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Mix the cheeses together and sprinkle the blend over the fries. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle it over the cheese. Bake the plate for 4 to 5 minutes in the hot oven, until cheese is melted. Serve with ranch dressing on the side.
  • This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings of either selection.
