What are Crispy Potato Cheese fingers?

Crispy Potato Cheese fingers are a trending potato snack similar to french fries, but made with cheesy mashed potatoes. With only 3 simple ingredients – potatoes, cheese, and cornstarch, you can make these addicting sticks that are sure to satisfy your french fry, mashed potato, and cheese cravings.

Can I make potato sticks without the cheese?

Yes, you could – even thought it defeats the purpose of the name “Potato Cheese Sticks”. If you are vegan, I suggest substituting the cheddar cheese with vegan cheese.


To make these Crispy Potato Cheese fingers you will need for :

Potato Cheese Dough:

  • 2 medium yellow potatoes 500g
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded, 100g
  • ⅔ cup cornstarch 100g

Deep Frying :

  • 1 litre vegetable oil or canola, peanut


Compared to a french fry, these potato cheese sticks stay crispier for longer, has a super fluffy yet slight chewy interior, and a strong cheddar flavour that’ll wake you right up!

Making the potato cheese dough

Peel and chop potatoes into small chunks.

Boil potatoes in salted water for 15-20 mins, until tender.

Transfer hot potatoes to strainer, pushing the potatoes through. Alternatively, you can mash them with a fork or masher.

Add in shredded cheese and cornstarch, mix and kneed until dough forms.

Cutting dough into strips

Divide dough in half and transfer into two sandwich bags, rolling the dough evenly until it fills the bag. Place bags into freezer for 20 mins.

Cut bags open, placing them onto a cutting board and slicing into 12 strips/bag. Place strips into freezer for another 20 mins.

Deep frying strips

To a large enough pot, heat vegetable oil over medium high heat until it reaches 350°F (180°C).

Carefully place strips into oil, letting it cook for 3-4 minutes or until crispy golden brown. (Note 1)

Transfer potato cheese sticks to wire rack to cool, serve with some ketchup 

Enjoy your Crispy Potato Cheese fingers!


Cook in batches – Do not let the pot overcrowd with potato sticks because they will stick together.

This recipe makes 24 potato cheese sticks.
