Backstory

Unfortunately, these are so tasty that they may become habit forming and you will probably eat too many.

Ingredients

  • 6 large Potatoes
  • BECHAMEL SAUCE
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 5 ounces grated parmesan cheese
  • 5 ounces crumbled Maytag blue cheese
  • 4 ounces crumbled Maytag blue cheese -- for sprinkling

Directions

  • Peel potatoes and slice thinly with a mandoline.
  • Wash potato slices in cool water to extract starch.
  • Drain and dry slices and deep-fry in oil in small batches until crisp at 350 degrees. (Do not fry too dark, as chips will be baked in the oven later.)
  • After frying, drain chips and salt them immediately with Kosher salt; set aside.
  • To make the sauce: In a large saucepan bring the milk and cream to a boil.
  • Remove from heat; add butter and cream cheese, parmesan and 5 ounces of blue cheese, whisking constantly, until melted.
  • If lumpy, mix in the blender until smooth.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pour 2 to 4 tablespoons sauce on an 8-inch oven-proof plate.
  • Mound chips high on the plate and cover with about 1/2 cup sauce, or to taste.
  • Generously sprinkle with Maytag blue cheese and bake for 4 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Any leftover sauce or cheese can be used on baked potatoes or pasta.
