One time my grandmother came over and started munching on them. They were in a bowl on the counter, or so the story goes. My parents didn't have the heart to tell her what they were. Wasn't it decadent? Well, I can see that if you don't like cheese curds, but I kinda liked the way the fries got a bit soft. Most were still quite crispy, but the ones that were under the gravy were good too. Kinda like mashed potatoes.. kinda, sorta. It was very satisfying in a down home, Mama's cookin' sort of way.
