Recipe Name: SHADOW’S CHEESE FRIES
1 Tblsp Butter
1/2 Small Onion
1/2 Tsp. Sugar
1 Clove Garlic
1 Tblsp Steak Sauce, such as A1
Pinch Habanero pepper, dried and crushed
1 Pound to 2 lb bag fries
1 Cup CHEESE, Colby Jack, Cheddar, Swiss,
or any type you like
6 PIECES Bacon, cooked
enough cooking oil ( I use olive ) to cover
the fries in the type vessel you are using
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
1 Tblsp Horseradish
DASH Cayenne Pepper
DASH Black Pepper
Use your favotite cheese for these.
Prepare dipping sauce and chill.
In a skillet cook the bacon with the butter until almost crisp. Remove from skillet. Add onion chopped fine, sugar, garlic, steak sauce, and crushed pepper to the skillet and saute until onion is limp and translucent. Set aside.
Heat oil to 350f, if you don’t have a thermostat, make sure the oil is hot enough so that when a fry is placed in the pan it cooks cook immediatly, if the fry sinks to the bottom and barely bubbles it is not hot enough. Fry the potatoes in small batches, they are done when they float and are golden brown. Drain potatoes on paper towels. You can keep them in the oven to stay warm.
When all the fries are done place them on an oven proof plater. Salt the fries. Top with the bacon crumbled and onion mixture, more steak sauce, and cheese. Place into a warm oven until cheese melts. Serve with the dipping sauce.
You can cook your fries in the oven if you want for a fat free version, follow the directions on your bag of fries for the temps and times for this method.
