Great, now I want to go to Gold Star Chili and get some proper cheese fries.

Mmmm, bacon flavored toppings.

When I was back in college, I once made Ore-Ida® fries with Cheez-Whiz®  sprayed on top of them. They kind of looked like that, only I didn't have dirt sprinkles. Even with all the drugs I did back then, I still only made them once. That's how awful they were. Or, possibly, that's how poor my cooking skills are. I really don't remember.

The audacity of McDonalds, how dare they offer an item on their menu that doesn't look like a meal prepared by a Michelin star rated chef! Furthermore forcing customers to buy and consume this item under threat of violence is a violation of human rights!

That looks vile.

Real cheese, or chili-cheese, fries from an all American Coney Island are the pinnacle of culinary achievement however.

If I want dressed fries I go to Fuddruckers, there's a whole salad bar and a nacho cheese dispenser to top my fries.

Anyone have a simple recipe for a cheese sauce? Bored with this thread. I don't typically like the 'slap cheese on and microwave' option, and am not a huge velveeta (or any 'processed cheese type food') fan.

Vintage fries?

So, like... fried grapes?

Put cream cheese in a non-stick skillet over medium low heat, once it's melted add grated cheese (whatever kind you like) the cream cheese will help keep everything smooth if it is too thick sour cream can help as well.

Mornay Sauce:

Add a tablespoon of butter and a table spoon of flour to a pan. Cook for five to seven minutes (it should turn a light sandy color), stirring frequently. Meanwhile, heat a cup of milk in at half power in the microwave for three minutes (or you can use a second pan and heat it on another burner on your stove). When the butter mixture is the right color, add the milk a little at a time, whisking to make sure lumps are gone before you add more. When all the milk is in, add salt, pepper, a bit of fresh-grated nutmeg, (half a pinch of cayenne is optional but good), and bring to a boil. If it gets too thick, you can thin it with a bit more milk or some wine. When the sauce is just a bit thinner than you want it to be, add an ounce (or more for a thicker sauce) of your favorite grated cheese. This is also a good sauce for macaroni and cheese.

Most Japanese people I know love cheese and milk. I know it is anecdotal, but between living there for 2 years and being married to a Japanese woman and spending considerable amour of time with her family and friends I remember eating lots of cheese- on curry, hamburgs, okonomiyaki, pasta, cheese kamaboko, and lots of other things.

There are recipes out there for cheese sauces that don't contain dairy, but I've not tried them (that I know of).  My wife is Han Chinese and doesn't like cheese, but man she'll eat the hell out of ice cream even if it does make her guts all rumbly.

Chinese and Japanese are about as different as Italians and Egyptians though. Cheese is pretty common in Japan. Milk is served every day in school to the kids as well. I don't think lactose intolerance is a huge issue there with their consumption of dairy.

I love Japanese McDonalds. Will not touch them here in the US, but in Japan they have the "Teriyaki McBurger" and it's the greatest achievement in fast food ever!

Funny thing?  If McDonalds is anything like Burger King you REALLY want to visit the R&D kitchens.  It's that they have to boil down the process in to a procedure that some 18 year old part-timer who really doesn't want to be there can do without farking it up too badly that kills the product.

In the R&D kitchen its made be a reasonably well paid and well trained chef. It apparently tastes really damn good.

In Michigan we had fries-n-gravy. It's still around in some older chains, and of course you could always order it and they'll figure it out. We never took the additional step of adding cheese curds, but again I say this, our large number of Tim Horton's, our love of hockey, and other factors are solid reasons why Canada should annex Michigan.

To be honest I don't find McDonalds to be disgusting. I worked there in high school and if it's prepared properly and the freshness rules are followed it's not bad tasting at all in my opinion. I don't eat at McDonalds often because if I eat enough to feel satisfied I've eaten way too much to be healthy, and since I stopped eating fast food even a small amount of fast food can make me feel ill.  If I'm on the road and don't want to stop for long a big mac and a coke is still a tasty meal even if I do regret it 15 minutes later. It's one of my guilty pleasures.

My point was that most of the people in this thread like me probably don't care what is on the McDonalds menu in their home town since they don't eat there so why should they care what is on it in Japan?
