Irish Fries

French fries are the ultimate pub grub food.  They are served as a side for a variety of pub grub foods like burgers or fish as well as appetizers and starters like chili cheese fries, ugly fries and poutine.  The best tasting and most economical fries are fresh hand cut fries which is the only kind we make at home.  Frozen fries are available in a wide range of cuts: crinkle, thick, thin, wedge, buffalo, chunk and more.   Many restaurants resort to using frozen fries out of convenience.

We enjoy going to Murphy Inn Restaurant in St. Clair, Michigan during the summer months.  Quite often we go by boat.  The past couple of weeks we have introduced Murphy's to some our our friends.  A couple of weeks ago we enjoyed the pizza special on Monday nights with good friends.  We repeated that again last week.  Our group ordered a variety of appetizers.   One of the appetizers was Irish Fries

The Irish Fries were thin cut French fries topped with cheese sauce, green onions, bacon and sour cream on the side.  They were a gooey, delicious delight!  These will be something I will be making at home but using hand cut fries and fresh made cheddar cheese sauce.  The sauce they used was likely canned similar to what the cheese sauce is for nachos.  I'm not fond of cheese products like cheese sauces or spreads.  While I do use them on occasion, if I can substitute with a fresh made cheese sauce or spread, all the better.
