How to make Chick Fil A Fries

Chick-fil-A waffle fries are more than just a side dish – they’re a sensation! Crispy, golden, and perfectly seasoned, these fries are a fan favorite for a reason.

These crispy, golden bites of potato goodness are a fan favorite for a reason. But what makes them so darn special? Let’s dive into the preparation and unique characteristics of Chick-fil-A waffle fries.

Chick-fil-A waffle fries are made from whole potatoes that are freshly peeled, cut, then cooked. The potatoes are cut into a unique waffle shape using a special press that makes them waffley amazing.

The waffle shape is not only fun, but the ratio of outer-edge to inner-potato goodness gives them a crispy exterior and fluffy interior that’s hard to resist. Because of their shape, they have more surface area than traditional fries, which means more crispy edges and more room for dipping sauces.

The fries are then lightly salted and served hot and fresh for your enjoyment.

Don’t forget to pair these with some delicious Chick Fil A sauce!

And now, I’m going to show you how you can have that magical seasoning anytime you want!

From their unique waffle shape to their delicious seasoning, these fries are a standout item. And if you haven’t yet tried to recreate this tasty recipe at home – here’s your chance!

I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!
