Cheese Fries

My kids love Snuffer's cheese fries, so I came up with my own version.  You've got to serve this with homemade Ranch Salad Dressing or it just isn't the same.  You can add additional toppings such as bacon pieces, sliced green onion and jalapenos.  We prefer our fries with only the cheese.

3 large russet potatoes
2 - 3 tbsp vegetable oil
Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning to taste
pepper to taste
shredded cheddar cheese
Ranch salad dressing for a dipping sauce (recipe follows)

Prick the potato with a fork about halfway through and cook in the microwave for 3 minutes.  Let the potatoes cool; peel and cut into strips.  Saute' the potatoes in oil that has been heated in a frying pan.  Cook, stirring frequently until golden in color, add more oil if needed.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Season the potatoes with pepper and Tony Chachere's.  Transfer the potatoes onto a pan.  Cover the potatoes with a solid layer of cheese and bake in the oven until cheese melts.  Serve with prepared Ranch dressing.

Ranch Salad Dressing:

1 envelope of Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing
1 cup Hellman's mayonnaise
1 cup butter milk

Mix all the ingredients in a jar or something similar.  Shake well.  Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
