Baked Herb Waffle Fries

For some time now I have proudly used the phrase “I can’t cook”. It was better than saying “hey look I prefer eating out and processed food because it’s easy”. However it was much more expensive and much less healthy.

Here’s a side that goes well with Cheesy Turkey & Bacon Sliders or any other quick healthy finger food type meal you’d like. The kiddos with also enjoy it!



What you will need:
3-4 Russet Potatoes
Olive Oil
Large Square Pan
Veggie Cutter
Oil Brush

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

Prep Time: 10-15 mins
1. Rinse the outside the potatoes. Be sure to clean them good because they will not be peeled. Using the crinkle cut side of the veggies cutter cut your potato. After your 1st cut rotate the potato opposite of the cuts you already have. Continue this process as you cut each potato. The rotation is how you will get the waffle fry look. (totally hoped I didn’t just confuse you). Continue until all of your potatoes are cut.

2. If you have a non stick pan put potatoes in the pan. If not have cover the pan in a foil wrap of you choosing. I would recommend spraying your foil with a non stick spray.

3. Brush your potatoes with olive oil. Do not over oil this will cause the potatoes to be flimsy (it’s happened to me). Sprinkle salt to taste onto the potatoes. Lastly, sprinkle fresh or dried parsley and/or oregano onto your potatoes as well.

Cooking Time: 20-30 mins (depends on the thickness of cut) Put potatoes in oven. Allow to cook for about 15 minutes. Check tenderness. If the potatoes are to your liking turn your oven on low broil. Allow to broil on one side for 5-7 mins or until potatoes are a golden brown color. Flip and repeat. Keep your eyes on them as broil works fast.

Eat up!

Stay tuned for an easy homemade chicken broth!

    1. I have had bad experiences w/ the oven and potatoes as well. If you try these please let me know how they turn out. I made them twice last week and there weren’t any left.


  1. Hey Mommy Usage. Great to see you’re doing great and on a roll! =) Not sure if you remember me. I commented at the Community Pool.

    A suggestion or two. As you start to write more posts.. you’ll need to classify and order them. Like one for recipes, being frugal, experiences being a mom etc. It makes it much easier for your audience to find and read old posts that are amazing.

    Another suggestion is to have sub-headings.. it makes easier for your audience to know what’s the main thing for that part rather than a long stretch of text.

    I like the previous post “If we had coffee..” where you were talking about being frugal. That could be something else you could write about. Above all, there’s always something you can write about. The sky is the limit.

    You’re doing great so far. I got a feeling Money Usage will go far =) Take care and all the best.


    1. Thank you! I have been trying to navigate WordPress to figure out how to put your suggestions and other to use. I’m very new to blogging and some of the language is confusing lol…I promise you will see your recommendations being used! Thank you so much for your feedback!
