step-by-step directions
  • Cut the Fries into equal parts French fries, wedges and waffle fries (use a mandolin).  Soak in water with Vinegar for 2-3 hours.  Drain and pat dry.
  • Working in batches, deep fry the fries in 325°F Oil for 6-7 minutes until lightly golden (the waffles and wedges may take a minute or two longer than the French fries).  Remove from Oil, and drain on a rack. Allow to cool.
  • Increase heat on oil to 375°F.  Cook fries in small batches in hot Oil for 2-3 minutes until golden brown and crispy.  Drain and dump into a large bowl.  While still hot, add Fries Seasoning and toss to coat.
  • Serve with a side of Fireball Buffalo Hot Sauce (in a shot glass or ramekin) – or pour over fries if eating and serving immediately.  Serve garnished with Carrots, Celery and Crumbled Blue.  Also serve with Blue Sabi Dipping Sauce.
  • Fries Seasoning:
  • Combine ingredients together in a bowl and mix.
  • Fireball Buffalo Hot Sauce:
  • In a large skillet, add Whiskey and set over medium-high heat.  Reduce until syrupy consistency (optional: remove from heat and flambé).  Once reduced, reduce heat, remove from heat and carefully add Hot Sauce.  Return to heat then add Butter while you whisk.  Bring to a simmer and, once thick and Butter has melted, season with Salt and Pepper.
  • For Bleu-Sabi Dipping Sauce:
  • Mix together well in a food processor or with a whisk. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
