I think about going back all the time, but alas, have not made it. But fear not! I have made attempts at recreating the goofy fries masterpiece.
Part 1: Corned Beef (not quite pastrami, but will do)
This morning, I tossed a corned beef brisket into my crockpot on low with about 3 cups of water. When I got home, I turned it off and scraped some of the fat off. When I took it out about an hour later, it shredded as I was cutting it. Yum.
Part 2: Cheese Sauce - inspired by Pinch of Yum
For the cheese sauce, over medium-low heat, heat 3 T milk and 1 oz cream cheese. Whisk until smooth (add another splash of milk if needed) and add 1/8 t garlic powder, and 1/8 t salt until smooth. When smooth, add 1/4 c shredded cheddar cheese. Whisk until smooth, adding more milk to thin out the sauce to your desired consistency.
Part 3: Fries - I like to use Trader Joe's Handsome Cut French Fries. 12-14 minutes in the toaster oven at 425 and you're good to go!
- Toss cooked fries with some salt and garlic powder if desired.
- Top with cheese sauce.
- Add chopped corned beef on top.
Sorry! No pics at the moment because I could not be bothered to take pictures because these wanna be goofy fries were that good, no great, no fantastic. :) Will update later (hopefully).
