Make most any meal better with these Loaded Waffle Fries, topped with a savory blend of cheese, scallions and bacon. I copied this family favorite recipe from a local restaurant and it's great with hot dogs, burgers or by itself. —Jeffrey Viccone, Decatur, Illinois
I came up with this recipe after my daughter had cheese fries at a restaurant and couldn't stop talking about them. She loves that I can fix them so quickly at home. Plus, the frozen fry packets can be refrigerated and reheated. -Melissa Tatum, Greensboro, North Carolina
"Here's an easy side dish for two that can be made in minutes from scratch. I think these fries rival frozen french fries for flavor," relates Peggy Hinnah of Fulton, Missouri. "We love snacking on these crunchy morsels served straight from the oven."
"These flavorful fries are the first thing we make when the zucchini in our garden is ready," relates Debbie Brunssen of Randolph, Nebraska. "I fry several batches because our family of eight loves these crispy golden wedges." You will, too, at just 71¢ per serving.
Looking for an alternative to french fries? Try these lightly crisp potato wedges. You can have fun with the coating—add some garlic powder, Cajun seasoning of whatever spices your family prefers.
