Delicious Waffle Fries Recipe


Just a little humor in searching for ingredients at the groceries. Sometimes it is like going in a maze especially if you are in a hurry.

Thankfully, you do not really need to get that much stuff since all you really need is a Patata (potato) or a whole bunch of Patatas if you want to make a whole bunch of waffle fries. Ingredients are actually just potato, oil and some flavoring of your liking.

How To Make Waffle Fries: Ingredients
  • Tip: To make your waffle fries better in taste, you must always choose the fresh and good-looking potatoes. Rotten ones would, of course, upset your stomach when eating the finished product.


Scrub your potatoes well especially if you are going to keep the skin on. Who knows what bacteria would await in there. Better not use soap, water will do.

  • Tip: Soak potatoes first with cold water while you prepare the pan or a deep fryer so to prevent them from turning into brown color.


How To Make Delicious Waffle Fries: Slice and dice the potatoes

To make the perfect shape of a waffle fry, you are going to need a “crinkle cutter”. Do not fret! The price is fortunately very affordable. The crinkle cutter will make cutting the waffle fries easier.

However, if you have a vegetable chopper, it would be a lot easier and fast.

  • Slice the potato downwards and rotate it 90 degrees every slice you make.
  • Keep on doing this until you become very good at it or used to cutting it already. Make sure they are even with the rest and in perfect shape and size. It’s your choice whether you want it to be big or small (A medium would be advised though).


After carefully slicing the potatoes, deep-fry them using a deep fryer. It is very simple really.

How To Make Delicious Waffle Fries: Deep-fry using a deep fryer
  • Add oil (it should be poured up to 375 degrees in order to let the Fries soak).
  • Carefully put the nicely sliced fries into the deep fryer! If you do not have an expensive deep fryer for fries like those other people do, use a pot and carefully put the fries in to avoid the oil from spilling all over the place, kitchen, or counter.
  • Cook them for at least 5 minutes until it has that sweet delicious golden brown looking color to tell you they are done and they are ready to get out of there.


When done frying the golden brown waffle fries, let them out of the deep fryer or pot and put them in the baking pan!

  • If you do not have a baking pan like the others do, use a plate or a tray.
  • Place some paper towels on the pan to avoid the waffle fries from and drain the oil at the same time.

If you want something on it like a bit of seasoning or spice, now is the time to do so!



Once done cooling down the freshly fried potatoes, add seasonings to add some more taste to it! Choose what you want to add in the special meal or put in your favorite type of seasoning.

Although, adding seasonings isn’t all that necessary. It’s okay not to add any if you don’t want to. You can let it stay plain and crispy together with some ketchup on top of it.

Below are some suggestions that kids would love to have with waffle fries:

  • Cheese powder or freshly grated cheese.
  • Chicken gravy (yep, they love it!).
  • Mayonnaise.
  • Ready mix tortilla dips.


  • Spicy beer mustard, Queso Fundido al Tequila, Espresso barbeque sauce, and Tangy ranch dip duo are good choices of dips for your waffle fries. If you don’t have any of them or think they are too much, Ketchup is also suggested.
