How To Make Copycat Chick-fil-A Waffle Fries

  • 2 large Russet Potatoes (washed and dried)
  • peanut oil
  • sea salt
  1. Begin this recipe for copycat Chick-fil-A waffle fries by washing and drying the potatoes. 

  2. Afterward, set the fluted blade of your mandolin to cut the potatoes at about a quarter-inch or half-inch in thickness. 

  3. This is where the process of making waffle fries may get tricky: you will need to rotate the potato 90 degrees after each pass in order to achieve a cross-cut look. Meanwhile, soak the sliced potatoes into a large bowl of water

  4. Fill a large pot or Dutch oven with about three inches of peanut oil. Allow the oil to reach 320 degrees Fahrenheit before using. 

  5. Next, drain the potatoes and dry them completely with a paper towel. Next, carefully add the potatoes to the hot oil in batches.

  6. Fry each batch for approximately four to five minutes before removing from the pot and letting them drain on a paper towel. At this point, the fries will not yet be a perfect golden brown. But be patient.

  7. Once your fries have gone through the first round of frying, heat them at a temperature of 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  8. Repeat the process of frying the waffle fries in batches for about two to three minutes or until their color turns a perfect golden brown. 

  9. Remove the fries from the oil and let them drain on a stack of paper towels.

  10. Sprinkle the fries with sea salt and serve warm.
