These Disco Fries are a New Jersey diner classic. Crunchy crinkle-cut fries get bathed in an easy homemade gravy and gooey mozzarella cheese.


  • 2 pounds of McCain Seasoned Crinkle Fries
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Brown gravy (recipe follows)
  • Parsley, for serving

For the Gravy:

  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Sea salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425. Spread the fries in one single layer on a large parchment-lined baking sheet. Cook the fries until golden and crispy, according to the package directions.
  2. While the fries are cooking, make the gravy. Melt the butter in a sauce pan and add the shallot and garlic. Season with sea salt and pepper. Cook until the shallot and garlic are softened. Sprinkle in the flour and cook, stirring, another 3 minutes. Slowly whisk in the beef stock while constantly stirring to avoid lumps. Add in the Worcestershire and season to taste with salt and pepper (if needed). Bring the gravy to a bubble and simmer 5-7 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat.
  3. When the fries are done, remove them from the oven and evenly sprinkle with the shredded mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted. Pour the warm gravy on top and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
