Begin this recipe for copycat Chick-fil-A waffle fries by washing and drying your potatoes. Then, set the fluted blade of your mandolin to cut the potatoes at about a quarter-inch or half-inch thickness. 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 the cross-cut look. Set the cut potatoes into a large bowl of water while you continue preparing this delicious side dish.

Fill a large pot or Dutch oven with about three inches of peanut oil. Allow the oil to reach 320 degrees before using. Next, drain the potatoes and pat completely dry with a paper towel. Carefully add the potatoes to the hot oil in batches. Fry each batch for approximately four to five minutes before removing from the pot and letting drain on a paper towel. At this point, the fries will not be a perfect golden brown but don’t worry, I got you.

Once your fries have gone through the first round of frying, adjust the heat to high and let warm to 375 degrees. Repeat the process of frying the waffle fries in batches but for about two to three minutes or until they are a perfect golden brown color. Remove them from the oil and let drain on a stack of paper towels. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve warm.
