Are You Ready For A Good Time? Cheese Fries

As promised here is my recipe for Cheese Fries. The original came from Miss Paula Dean. Usually I don't change anything Miss Paula does but, on this one I tweaked.

My Family are cheese freaks. We had this with our B.B.Q.'d steak and salad last night and Mmmmm. Mmmmmmm. It is yummy.

Here Goes:
1 28 - 32 oz. package frozen shoestring French fries, thawed and divided. I like the 32 oz. size the best.
1 16 oz. container sour cream
1 10.5 oz. can cream of chicken soup
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
2 1oz. packages ranch salad dressing and seasoning mix
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 teas. salt
1 8 oz. package shredded Cheddar cheese
1 8oz. package Mozzarella cheese
2 - 4 cups Cheddar, Monterrey jack mix shredded cheese.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 13x9x2 inch baking dish. Spread half of French fries to cover bottom of prepared dish. In a large bowl, combine sour cream, chicken soup, cream cheese, dressing mix, broth  and salt.

Spread half of sour cream mixture over fries, top with  the cheddar and mozzarella cheese.

Spread remaining fries evenly over cheese, top with remaining sour cream mixture, and then top that with the Cheddar, Monterrey jack cheese mixture. I load the top of the pan with as much cheese as I can possibly get on there with out it boiling over while it is baking. If you don't want that much cheese on top, just add less.

Cover, and bake for 1 hour. Uncover and bake for 10 more minutes.

I cut this into portions with a spatula and serve it that way. Easier than using a spoon. It is gooey delishisnous at it's best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh divine cheese and potatoes! We do something similar and use shredded potatoes or cubed/diced potatoes. In church they call them funeral potatoes.
