Tempting Tuesdays ~ Waffle Fry Sliders by Ro

I am a huge fan of Rosanna Pansino, the host of Nerdy Nummies on YouTube. She makes the most amazing treats, but I've never been brave enough to try any of her recipes until now. I love waffle fries and I love little sliders, so I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to make one of Ro's recipes.


1 pound ground beef
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cooking oil (for your pan)
1 package waffle fries (cooked according to package directions)
Toothpicks to keep the sliders together
Your favorite cheese cut into squares

Optional extras
sliced tomato
dill pickle chips
purple onion

Cook waffle fries according to package directions while you prepare the ground beef.

Place ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, minced garlic, pepper, and salt into a bowl. Dig in with your hands and mix it all up.

Pinch off some of the ground beef mixture and roll it into a ball. Remember these will shrink while cooking, so don't make them too small. I got 18 sliders out of this batch.

Add 1 tbsp oil to a pan. Cook ground beef over low-medium heat for 3 minutes per side. Once flipped, press down with the back of a spatula to make it into a patty shape.

Add cheese squares while second side is cooking and let it melt.

Time to assemble! Get a nice and big waffle fry to use as your base. Ro puts lettuce and pickle on the bottom before she puts on the slider, but since I'm not a huge lettuce fan, I just put the pickle. Next comes the meat, then any sauce you'd like, and top with your favorite burger veggies. Add another waffle fry and secure the slider with a toothpick. These can be served as party appetizers or just a fun dinner for the family.

Watch Ro put it all together in this video. The waffle sliders are the last recipe so if you want to skip to 9:56, that is where you'll find it.

And that's all folks!
