Ingredients

Fries:
Cheese Sauce:

Directions

To make the fries: Peel the potatoes and cut into desired French-fry size. Put into a bowl of ice water and let stand for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make the cheese sauce: Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.

Heat shortening in a large pot, deep skillet or deep-fat fryer. Drain potatoes and dry thoroughly. Working in small batches, fry the potatoes until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spatula, transfer fries as they cook to a brown paper bag. Add the salt, pepper, and Parmesan and shake to coat well. Serve immediately with the cheese sauce.
