Waffle Fries

Waffle fries are a popular variation of the classic French fries, characterized by their unique lattice or grid-like pattern. Originating in the United States, they are made by cutting potatoes in a crisscross pattern using a specific waffle fry cutter or mandoline slicer. This intricate design not only gives them an appealing visual aspect, but also increases their surface area, leading to a crispier texture. Waffle fries can be served as a standalone snack or a side dish, often accompanied by various dipping sauces, such as ketchup, mayo, or cheese sauce. Their distinct form allows for better sauce coverage, making them a favorite among many fast food enthusiasts and home cooks alike.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Waffle Fries expire?
Depending on where you buy your waffle fries, they might come with an expiration date on the package. Unopened, they can typically last up to a year in the freezer. Once opened, they are best consumed within two weeks for peak freshness but can be safe to eat for up to three to four weeks, if stored properly in the freezer. If you fry the frozen waffle fries, try to eat them within a few hours for the best taste and texture, though they can be safely eaten for up to three to five days when refrigerated in airtight containers.
How do you tell if Waffle Fries is bad?
The obvious signs to tell if your waffle fries have gone bad include the presence of mold, a significant change in color (they become very dark or very light), or an off smell. If the potatoes seem very hard, have ice crystals formed on them, or the fries are very dry and shrunken, they're likely freezer burnt and while not harmful to eat, their quality and taste will be significantly degraded.
Tips for storing Waffle Fries to extend shelf life
• Always store your waffle fries in the freezer unless already cooked. • If you've opened a bag of frozen waffle fries, try to use air-tight freezer bags or container to store the leftovers. This protects the fries from freezer burn and keeps them fresh longer. • Cooked waffle fries should be stored in refrigerator within two hours of cooking to avoid the growth of bacteria. Use airtight containers to keep them crisp. • For leftover cooked waffle fries, reheating them in an oven or air fryer can help retain their crispy texture.
