Cheddar Cheese Dip

  • 1 Shallot (minced)

  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne
  • 2 Cups Milk

step-by-step directions
  • Heat oil to 300°F.
  • Working in batches, fry Potatoes for 6 minutes at 300°F. Remove and drain on a cooling rack over a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Increase oil to 365°F.
  • Working in batches, fry the par cooked Potatoes for 5-6 minutes until rich golden and crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Immediately season with Herbs, Salt and Pepper.

  • For Aged Cheddar Dip:
  • Heat a sauce pot over medium with Butter. Add the Shallot, season with Salt and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the Garlic and cook just until fragrant.
  • Sprinkle in the Flour and Cayenne and stir to form a wet paste. Stir in the Milk, whisking vigorously to try to avoid lumps. Season with Salt and Pepper. Cook for about 5-6 minutes or until slightly thickened.
