Reuben Waffle Potato Appetizers

I love Reubens, so I turned the classic sandwich into a fun appetizer with corned beef and sauerkraut on waffle fries. —Gloria Bradley, Naperville, Illinois

    I made 1/2 recipe. I baked the waffle cuts.....then made the cream cheese part. I also added the corned beef to the cream cheese mixture - makes it easier when assembling. I did all this the day before (keeping the cheese separate from the fries. When ready for company, I put all together and the baked at 400 degrees. Turned out great and saved me from last minute preparations while guests were there.
