  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to the temperature needed for the fries (typically 425 F), and place the rack in the center of the oven.
  2. Step 2

    In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the flour, stirring constantly and cooking until golden brown, about 2 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    While whisking, add the beef broth in a slow, steady stream to the roux , then add the minced shallots and garlic. Stirring regularly, cook the gravy for 15 to 20 minutes, or until it thickens to your desired consistency (it will thicken slightly as it rests).
  4. Step 4

    Once the gravy is simmering, place the frozen fries in a single layer on a baking sheet and cook according to the package directions.
  5. Step 5

    Add the Worcestershire sauce, sherry (if using), pepper, and salt when the gravy is nearly done. Stir well to incorporate. Remove the pan from the heat and let rest while the fries finish cooking.
  6. Step 6

    Remove the fries from the oven and transfer them to a shallow oven-safe serving platter. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 F. Top the fries with the mozzarella cheese and bake for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  7. Step 7

    To serve, drizzle as much gravy as you like over the cheesy fries.
