Jersey Disco Fries

Jersey Disco Fries created by Jonathan Melendez

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

Ready In:
25mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 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

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

    Born and raised in New Jersey and I never heard of this. Everybody knows the favorite summer foods are Jersey tomatoes, Jersey sweet corn and pork roll, egg and cheese sandwiches.
