  French fries 26 Ounce (Frozen, May Use A Small Crinkle-Cut Style)
  Butter/Margarine 3 Tablespoon
  Onion 1⁄2 Small, finely chopped
  Flour 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Milk 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Minced parsley/1.5 teaspoons dried parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Corn flakes cereal/Any other topping 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Cooking oil spray 1

Thaw a 26-oz. package of frozen French fries for about ½ hour to 1 hour. Spray the bottom and sides of a 13-inch by 9-inch by 2-inch baking dish with cooking oil spray. Place the French fries in the prepared dish, spreading them out to cover the bottom. Now, prepare you cheese sauce. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine in a medium-sized saucepan. Add ½ small, finely chopped onion. Saute the onion over low heat until clear. Remove from heat. Add ¼ cup flour and stir until somewhat smooth. Add 2 cups milk and 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese. The mixture will be lumpy. Place over low heat, and stir continuously, mashing out any lumps, until cheese sauce is smooth and thickened. Remove the cheese sauce from heat and add ¼ cup minced fresh parsley. Pour the completed cheese sauce evenly over the French fries in the baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, and add corn flake cereal in a border around the edge of the baking dish, and return to the oven for an additional 5 minutes or so of baking. When the casserole is bubbly and the topping is browned, remove from the oven and serve immediately! Yum!!! Super Bowl football basketball NCAA game day playoff
