Cheese Fries Mac and Cheese

Cheese Fries Mac and Cheese

Cheese fries are a guilty pleasure of Mandi and I but when I try to make them at home they never really stack up. The best cheese fries use that processed nacho cheese sauce that comes out of a pump at a baseball game or movie theater. I saw a recipe for this type of cheese sauce on Serious Eats recently and I put it on my to-cook list immediately. I thought it would be cool to use this sauce on a mac and cheese and top it with french fries, so that’s what I did. This is a super indulgent dish of cheese on carbs on cheese on carbs, but hey you gotta splurge once in awhile and this is worth it.

Crispy Cheese Gnocchi with Spicy Ketchup

Crispy Cheese Gnocchi with Spicy Ketchup

It makes sense to dip your gnocchi in ketchup since gnocchi is made of mostly potato. But these weren’t just any gnocchi, they were marbled with a sharp cheddar, and perfumed with a splash of truffle oil. And it wasn’t just your ordinary ketchup either, it was fortified with some garlic and olive oil, and spiked with a nice hit of sriracha. These cheese gnocchi were nice and crispy on the outside, but extremely delicate and soft on the inside and exploding with flavor on every bite.
