How to make it

  • 1. Preheat a Belgian waffle iron according to manufacturer instructions.
  • 2. Add half of French fries and press down firmly to compress (If using a two-well waffle iron, fill both sides).
  • 3. Cook until completely crisp and golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes (if using a single well waffle iron, hold finished waffle on a rack set in a rimmed baking sheet in a 200°F oven while you cook the second waffle).
  • 4. Season with salt and serve with mayonnaise or ketchup immediately.

    I tried this again with diner fries. They have more grease in them and it worked a lot better! I added another picture.

    I was in Burger King territory today so I picked up a large order of fries so I could try this. I just have a plain ol' waffle maker - not a Belgian one so I cooked them until the green light came on, lifted the lid until it turned red again and then cooked until the green light. Probably about 10 minutes. I'd like to try these with some greasier fries. I think Burger King has gone healthy on me or something. They got nice and crisp though and much improved the BK fry, which we all know is inferior to McDonald's. :-) I added a picture and a thread in IMI. 3/13/14
