Chickie’s & Pete’s Crabfries

Seriously, is there any fry out there that is better!? I remember ordering these in the restaurant, eating every last crumb, scraping the cheese clean out of the little cup and thinking to myself, I can make these. French fries, crab seasoning…but the cheese? The cheese was a mystery to me. I could not figure it out. It’s a magical sauce that has left many to wonder, WHAT IS IT MADE OF? Oh, you were not wondering? Is it just me? Me that sits and ponders what cheese makes this sauce? LOL 😛 Well, I tried out a few cheeses and I was SO stumped and ready to throw in the towel… until one day…

One day I was looking in my fridge and I was staring at some Cooper Sharp (something I often do) and I thought to myself, no way. This can’t be the answer……can it??

IT SURE WAS. Cooper. Sharp. Literally melted down slow with some water to thin it out. That is the cheese sauce. Since this day, I’ve been making these at home regularly and they are a hit, every single time. Be prepared to have your world rocked.

what you need…

-what you need-

  • 1 bag of frozen crinkle cut fries
  • Old bay seasoning
  • 1/2 pound Cooper Sharp cheese, cubed
  • 1/3 cup water + more

-what to do-

  1. Preheat your air fryer, or oven, to 400 degrees.
  2. Air fry or bake the fries until crispy, I used the air fryer and this took about 20 minutes, shaking halfway through.
  3. While the fries cook, in a small sauce pot over low heat add in your 1/3 cup water and cubed cheese. Stir with a whisk until melted, add additional water as needed to get desired consistency. Just keep note once the cheese starts to cool it will thicken. You want to keep the cheese hot until ready to serve.
  4. When fries are done, season with crab seasoning, serve with hot melty cheese on the side and ENJOY!!!!

What do french fries do when they get together?

they ketchup.
