As in, cheese curds mounded over french fries, then drenched in gravy?

The kids and I loved it, while recognizing its innate alien nature. I made it a bunch of times over a period of a couple of months.
Now somehow it has morphed into sick food. On the couple of occasions that I have gotten the flu, nothing will do but this dish. If I'm feeling particularly ill the french fries are replaced with egg noodles, and in all cases the cheese is American slices or Velveeta. I cringe to admit this, even to myself. This is the only time that I will buy that type of cheese (?? is it cheese??).

Being of Irish heritage I believe in my soul that anything that can be good food can be improved by putting it on top of a potato

Speaking of cheese whiz, that spray cheese, sharp cheddar flavor, is pretty good on Hershey's Special Dark chocolate (I do not eat either of these items normally but sometimes I get really strange cravings, pregnant or not).
