Ingredients
  • Gravy:
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon sherry
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Fries:
  • 2 pounds frozen crinkle-cut French fries, such as Alexia
  • Cheese Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 ounces white Cheddar, shredded
  • 2 ounces Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • For the gravy: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk to combine. Cook the flour until dark brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the stock and cook, whisking, until the mixture is smooth and thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir in the sherry, Worcestershire, 1/2 teaspoon salt and some pepper, adjusting the seasoning to taste. Remove from the heat and cover by pressing a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the gravy, taking care to cover it completely to prevent a skin from forming. Set aside.

  • For the fries: Bake the French fries according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  • For the cheese sauce: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk to combine. Cook until the mixture resembles sand, about 3 minutes. Add the milk and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to boil and thicken, 2 to 4 minutes. Add the Cheddar and Gruyere and continue to cook, stirring, until the cheese is fully melted, another 2 to 3 minutes. Add the Worcestershire, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste and remove from the heat. Cover in the same fashion as the gravy and set aside until the French fries are ready.

  • When the French fries are ready, transfer them to a serving platter. Drizzle the fries with the warm gravy and then with the warm cheese sauce. Serve immediately.
