Ingredients:

  • 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into thin fries
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or your favorite melting cheese)
  • Optional toppings: chopped green onions, crispy bacon bits, sour cream, ranch dressing, or ketchup

Instructions:

  1. Prep the Potatoes:
    • Rinse the peeled potatoes under cold water to remove excess starch. Pat them dry with paper towels.
    • Cut the potatoes into thin fries, about 1/4-inch thick. Soak the fries in cold water for at least 30 minutes to remove more starch (this helps in achieving crispiness).
  2. First Fry (Blanching):
    • Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 325°F (165°C).
    • Working in batches, carefully add the potato fries to the hot oil. Fry for about 4-5 minutes, just until they are cooked through but not yet crispy.
    • Remove the fries from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined tray to drain excess oil. Let them cool for a few minutes.
  3. Second Fry (Crisping):
    • Increase the oil temperature to 375°F (190°C).
    • Re-fry the blanched potato fries in batches until they are golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per batch.
    • Remove the fries from the oil and transfer them to a paper towel-lined tray. Immediately sprinkle with salt while they are hot.
  4. Cheese Topping:
    • Preheat your oven’s broiler on high.
    • Arrange the crispy fries on an oven-safe baking dish or sheet pan in a single layer.
    • Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese evenly over the fries.
    • Place the fries under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Serve:
    • Remove the cheesy fries from the oven.
    • Optional: Sprinkle with chopped green onions, crispy bacon bits, or any other desired toppings.
    • Serve the super crispy cheesy fries immediately with sour cream, ranch dressing, or ketchup on the side for dipping.

Enjoy these super crispy cheesy fries as a delicious snack or appetizer! Customize them with your favorite toppings and savor the crispy, cheesy goodness.
