Why I Love This Recipe

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


Ingredients You'll Need

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.


Questions, Comments & Reviews


Thanks, Karen. I've changed the recipe to warm water. Many thanks, Reuben.

I think I'm in love. I adore Maytag and this sounds fantastic. I don't have a deep fryer but putting tht potatoes through the food processor blade and roasting will approximate the deep frying. Try soaking in hot water vs. cold. I got that tip form Cooks Illustrated and the oven fries I made turned out great. Thanks.
