  • 30 ounce frozen french fries
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • ¼ cup dill pickles diced
  • ½ tbsp yellow mustard

Swiss Cheese Sauce

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk I used 2%, can use whole or heavy cream for a creamier sauce
  • 8 ounces swiss cheese chopped


  • Bake the french fries as directed.
  • Meanwhile to prepare the sauce melt the butter in a medium size saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted whisk in the flour. Will be thick. Pour in the milk and stir to combine, as it heats this will thicken slightly. Add in the cheese and continue to stir as the cheese melts. Once the cheese is completely melted continue to stir. The sauce will thicken.
  • When the sauce is thick, remove from heat.
  • To assemble the fries, top the fries with the diced ham, diced pickle, drizzle with cheese sauce and mustard.
