Fries With A Cheesy Onion Twist
This decadent version of french fries is covered in a creamy cheese sauce and topped off with sweet caramelized onions.
This isn't just any plate of fries. These are loaded with flavor. When I visit my favorite burger joint, they sell a similar version of this dish that I've recreated at home. I jazzed up plain fries by adding thousand island dressing, a rich and creamy cheese sauce and topped it off with delicious caramelized onions. Rather than using plain or raw onions, caramelized onions add a rich deep sweetness.
Smothered cheese fries with caramelized onions recipe
To make 1 cup caramelized onions, start with 3 cups of sliced raw onions. Over medium heat, cook the onions in 2 tablespoons of butter until the onions are a deep, dark brown color. This process can take up to 30 minutes. Remember to stir the onions frequently to prevent sticking and burning.
