Last year around this time, I was writing a new post to share for St. Patrick’s Day for Dubliner Tomato Chicken and had a really good idea for a new french fry recipe. I was going to call them Blarney Fries, and use that delicious Kerry Gold Dubliner Irish cheese.

Good thing I wrote my idea down, because when I was rifling through the folder that houses all of the new recipes I want to make, I came across this one and couldn’t wait to make them. The idea was really quite simple; and much like the idea of NJ Diner Disco Fries (or poutine if you prefer that terminology!).

Blarney Fries are my version of an Irish Poutine made with steak cut french fries, Irish Dubliner cheese, shaved roast beef; then topped with brown gravy.

For this recipe you’ll need steak fries, shredded Irish Dubliner cheese, thinly sliced roast beef (or even some diced Sunday leftover roast!), brown gravy and chopped scallions for garnish. I used frozen steak fries to make it easier, but you can use peeled russet potatoes, cut into thin wedges as well. Start by heating some oil in a large frying pan and cook the potatoes until they are crispy and golden brown. (You can also bake them in the oven if you prefer).

While the fries are cooking, you can make the brown gravy. Melt butter in a small saucepan; then whisk in some flour to form a roux. Next, add beef broth and gravy master; then whisk until the gravy has thickened (approximately 5 minutes).

Drain the fries on paper towels to remove any excess oil; then place them on a baking sheet and preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Top the fries with the shredded cheese; then bake for 10 minutes until the cheese has melted. Remove the fries from the oven, and drizzle the gravy on top. Garnish with the chopped scallions.

OMG these Blarney Fries were a heart attack waiting to happen, but were so DELICIOUS we ate them anyway! That says a lot from me  because I’m not usually one for gravy on anything because food gets too soggy. (I’m weird like that 😉 ). This recipe serves about 8 people and would go perfectly with a nice juicy burger. ~Enjoy!
