Waffle Fry Burger Bites are perfect for patriotic noshing since we pledge allegiance to small bites, allowing us the freedom of snacking over the long holiday July 4th weekend!
They’re good anytime in the summer too for a small bite to satisfy a burger craving, if you want to save calories on bread, or for those that are Gluten-Free since the waffle fries are the bun!
I found this idea for the ‘fry’ bun on Pinterest so I can’t take credit for this fun fry-burger-bite idea :)
I used Ore-Ida frozen waffle fries for the convenience. I did have to pick through the bag to find the right size ‘buns’ but that means there are more fries for snacking, not a problem for aFrench Fry-oholic :)
Follow the direction on the package for baking your frozen fries in the oven. I baked my fries 15 minutes at 425 degrees F instead of 450 as directed on the bag.
Top your fries with your preferred burger toppings or allow your guests to build their own! We made these several times of the course of the weekend, making our hamburger paddies and baking our waffle fry-buns as needed. Caramelized onions are a delicious addition too along with bacon.
