Cheese Fries With Gravy

Who doesn't love french fries?  It's one of my weaknesses, I admit.  I can't see a plate of fries without at least eating one.  It's a negative trait about me that I'm trying to work on, but will probably always fail because frankly, who doesn't want to eat fries?  A world without fries is not a world for me.

But a plate of crispy fries smothered in gravy and melted cheese?  I don't take just one.  I take the entire plate.  And I'm not sorry!

I grew up in Jersey eating this deliciousness and because I currently live in Florida, this dish can't be found anywhere.  Trust me, I've searched.  So I thought I could recreate it at home with very few steps, and I succeeded.  This is the easiest dish to make.  You can eat it for a side dish but I just eat it as a main dish because it's so filling but so amazing that I don't want to eat anything else when I have this in front of me. 

  • Frozen fries (any cut will work but I use crinkle cut)
  • 1 Jar brown gravy ( I used Heinz Savory Beef)
  • 1 bag shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Heat gravy in a sauce pan on medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Deep fry your french fries according to the directions on the package.  Drain on a paper towel. 
  • Transfer to a cake pan, making sure the fries are in an even layer.
  • Top with as much cheese as you like.
  • Pour hot gravy over fries and cover the cake pan with a plate to make sure all the cheese melts.
  • Enjoy!
How easy was that?  What are you waiting for?  Go make this, grab a fork, and dig in!!
