One of America’s Favorites – Cheese Fries

Cheese fries

Cheese fries or cheesy chips (latter British English) are an American fast-food dish, consisting of french fries covered in cheese with the possible addition of various other toppings. Cheese fries are generally served as a lunch- or dinner-time meal. They can be found in fast-food locations, diners, and grills all across the United States, as well as the rest of the world.

The dish originated in the United States, although its exact birthplace is still widely disputed. Cheese fries have been said to grow in popularity in the United States after canned cheese products such as Cheez Whiz hit the U.S. markets in 1952. Don A. Jenkins is said to have invented a variation of the cheese fry (the chili cheese fry), at the age of 16, in Tomball, Texas. Another report claims that a young fry cook named Austin Ruse was the first to serve this dish while working at Dairy Queen in St. Charles, MO.

A common method of making cheese fries involves pouring melted cheese onto a plate of fries:

1 – Place uncooked french fries (cut or frozen) onto a greased baking pan
2 – Bake at 450°F for about 15 minutes (or until golden brown)
3 – In a separate bowl, mix melted cheese with preferred spices, meats, or vegetables
4 – Once french fries are out of the oven, pour the melted cheese onto the fries

Throughout the Southwest US, cheese fries are often covered in melted cheddar cheese, bacon bits, jalapeño slices, and chives, and served with ranch dressing. Alternately, they are also served as carne asada fries. In Philadelphia, pizza fries are topped with melted mozzarella and served with pizza sauce on the side, while “mega fries” are topped with cheddar (or sometimes Cheez Whiz) and mozzarella cheese and bacon. Usually served with a side of ranch dressing. In New York City, Long Island, and New Jersey, they are covered with American, mozzarella, or Swiss cheese, then melted. In New Jersey and certain New York City diners, Disco Fries are served with mozzarella and brown gravy. In other parts of the US, nacho cheese is often used, especially in snack stand-type settings.

Chili cheese fries

Chili cheese fries are topped with chili con carne. The cheese is usually either American or cheddar. In Cincinnati, Ohio, they use their own Cincinnati chili for their chili cheese fries at the local chili restaurants. In New

Mexico, they use New Mexican chile for their chili cheese fries, often adding chopped lettuce, tomato, and olives as garnish.

In Ireland, a variation called “taco fries” consists of fresh cut chips covered in sub sauce and shredded cheddar. Piled on top of the cheese are ground beef, tomato, peppers, onions, and various seasonings. In Bulgaria, a common side dish offered in most restaurants consists of French fries, topped with grated or crumbled sirene. In the Netherlands a dish named ‘kapsalon’ is served as fast food. This consist of fries covered with cheese, salad, and shawarma or doner kebab. It is often consumed with large amounts of garlic sauce or chili sauce.

Animal Fries’ consisting of cheese, grilled onions, and spread on a regular order of fries at In-N-Out Burger, part of their “secret” menu

In the United Kingdom, chips and cheese are often served in pubs. Preparation includes the pouring of cheddar sauce over chips or sprinkling cheddar over chips and then putting the dish under a grill. A variation adds beef gravy on top.

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Shoestring Fries

 
To start the morning I toasted a Thomas Bagel Thin. These toast up great and make very good Breakfast Sandwich. Then I Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites and took one slice of Sargeto Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese to top the Egg Whites. And I have my Breakfast Sandwich! I was at Kroger yesterday and they had the Thomas Bagel thins on sale, buy 1 get one free. These are 110 calories and 21 net carbs. I froze one package so we’ll see how they hold up. We had about 1 1/2 inches of rain overnight, lot of local flooding down in Cincinnati. After Breakfast I took Mom’s car in to have the oil changed at a local Car Repair we go to. Then after Lunch I went over to spend some time with Dad. Back home did a load of laundry for Mom. So for Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Shoestring Fries.

 

 

I used the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

To go with the Sausage Dog I baked up some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with Morton’s Lite salt and Ground Black Pepper. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right.! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Served with a side of my favorite Ketchup, Hunt’s Ketchup. I had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Fish Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Fish Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 
For Breakfast on this chilly Saturday Morning I Prepared a Cheese Omelet, made with Egg Beater’s Egg Whites and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I then toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had the every morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cold out this morning, 32 degrees and light frost. The afternoon it got up into the 60,s and sunny. As it warmed up outside I got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and around the driveway. After Lunch I went over to spend the afternoon with Dad. He wasn’t having a very good day. He was having a lot of trouble breathing today. He’s been having more bad days than good lately, just keep praying for his recovery. Back home I did a load of laundry for Mom. For Dinner tonight, it’s a Dinner by the oven tonight! I prepared a Fish Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

I picked up a bag of the Gorton’s Smart and Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets at Meijer a while back and had them in the freezer. You bake them from frozen so I didn’t have to thaw them out. To prepare them I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Then took a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. Laid the Fish Fillets flat in the pan and baked for 24 minutes, I flipped them over after 15 minutes. The Fillets came out perfect! The Breading gave them a nice crunch and they had excellent flavor. They are 190 calories and 25 net carbs per serving which is 2 Fillets. Another great Seafood Product from Gorton’s, and another good one to have in the freezer! Served it a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Bun along with a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

 

For a side I baked up some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

One of America’s Favorites – Polish Boy

January 9, 2017 at 5:47 PM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

The Polish Boy is a sausage sandwich native to Cleveland, Ohio. It consists of a link of kielbasa placed in a bun, and covered with a layer of french fries, a layer of barbecue sauce or hot sauce, and a layer of coleslaw. While the sausage is typically grilled, some establishments will quickly deep fry the sausage after grilling and prior to assembling the sandwich. While Polish Boys can be found at various establishments throughout Cleveland, a popular place is Freddie’s Southern Style Rib House, known for their southern style barbecue sauce. Esquire named theirs as one of the best sandwiches in America, calling it “soul on white.”

Chef Michael Symon cited the Polish Boy as “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” on the Food Network, where he featured

A Polish boy sandwich from Freddie's Southern Style Rib House

A Polish boy sandwich from Freddie’s Southern Style Rib House

Seti’s Polish Boys on the show. Seti’s version is unique because of optional chilli and cheese that can be added to your sandwich.

Polishboy sandwich consist only of a beef polish sausage, french fries, coleslaw and barbecue sauce on a bun. Polishboys can be found in most if not all of Cleveland soulfood restaurants. Chilli, cheese peppers and sauerkraut are not ingredients found on a Polishboy. Chef Gregby Camp from “Mickey Flickey’s Amazing Wings” appeared on The Wendy Williams Show to teach the audience how to make a Cleveland Polish boy. Chef Camp suggests toasting the bun to give it better flavor and to hold the sandwich together. His sandwich features just enough coleslaw to taste, homemade french fries and their Amazing Comeback Barbecue Sauce.

 

 
Hot Sauce Williams, a restaurant on Cleveland’s East Side, features a variation that includes the addition of smoked and barbecued pork shoulder to the sandwich and was featured in June 2010 on the Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food. Host and food enthusiast Adam Richman tried their Polish boy, which featured the restaurant’s signature hot-sauce. Since the airing of the episode, Hot-Sauce Williams changed the type of french fries used in the sandwich and removed the pork shoulder from its components. B&M Barbecue, a Cleveland BBQ chain, calls this variant of the Polish Boy with pork shoulder a “Polish Girl”.
