So - It's Sunday and There is Beer and something Cool on TV?

Ladies and Gentlemen - this is NOT a time for salad.

Range Fries with Bacon and Homemade Queso.

Cook up some Waffle Fries, a couple big handfuls per servings (I love the Alexia brand sweet potato waffle fries, regular waffle fries will work),

Fry up 1/2 to 1 pound bacon (depending on whether you are doing 2 or 4 servings)

Keep warm until ready to assemble or cook while you're making your sauce

For the queso (makes enough for four servings, and will reheat nicely)

In a sturdy cooking pot heat on low until steaming (do not be tempted to raise heat)

-1 a teaspoon of butter
-1 cup half and half on low until steaming

 SLOWLY stir in, 1/4 cup at a time, stirring constantly and maintaining the temperature on LOW

-3/4 pound deli white american cheese, that you've finely shredded) do NOT use the cheap stuff
-1/2 pound deli fontina, also very finely shredded

When melted, add:
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped canned green chilis
-1/2 tsp cumin
-1/2 tsp Penzey's roasted garlic powder
-1/2 tsp onion powder
-1/2 tsp dried cilantro or 1/4 tsp oregano
-dash of salt and pepper

Layer fries and bacon and top with cheese.  If you like, pop it under the broiler for a moment to bown up the top (optional)

Serve immediately with a cold beer or beverage of your choice


  1. And have your health care paid up.

  2. A little leftover crumbled hamburger would be a nice add too! :-)

  3. Hey!! You forgot to tell us what the Cool thing on TV was...

    1. I think my friends are all watching a Nascar race today - we actually don't own a TV (by choice).

  4. And I gained two pounds just from reading this......


  5. New episode from "The Musketeers" Season Three?

    Really tough to get those right now since Auntie Beeb still hasn't put it on the schedule in the UK.
