Over the past year, I’ve been slowly working my way through every frozen French fry bag ; my wife, shaking her head in disbelief will confirm this. Why? Well, I’ve been working on finding out just exactly who has the best frozen fry. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it.
I’d delayed a waffle fry for the longest of time, because I thought this still of flattened fry just wasn’t to my tastes. Still, the tasting must be done! Ore-Ida’s product comes in a bold red bag like most of their line, which also isn’t resealable once opened.
Cooking: Bake, deep fry, or yep you guessed it – air fry. The latter produced perfectly golden waffle fries.
Taste and texture: These exceeded my expectations by some margin. The Ore-Ida waffle fry is more amalgamation of smaller French fries, than it is, a smaller lattice of mashed potato. These are big, with plenty of crunch and lots of soft potato. You don’t need many per serving.
Overall: Who knew I was a waffly fry fan, not me! I’d happily buy these again should the dish require it. Scroll down – they make the perfect ‘loaded fry’ base.
