Layers of crispy waffle fries, crunchy bacon, creamy ranch then topped with melted cheese. All made in the air fryer and minimal cleanup. Air Fryer Loaded Waffle Fries are just what snacking should be, easy and delicious!
I think it’s an official thing by now. We are going on 8 solid months of me being in love with my air fryer. If an inanimate object can be your BFF, my air fryer and I would be attached at the hip. This thing is THE BOMB! What can’t you make in this thing?
Can you make sandwiches in it? Yes! Check out this Roasted Pepper Turkey Sandwich.
Snacks for munching? Yes! Air Fryer Rosemary Cashews is one of my most popular recipes.
What about making an air fryer recipe that is loaded with bacon, ranch and LOTS of cheese? Um, yeah. That’s literally what I’m doing right now.
So we’ve got dinner squared away for Mitten Movie Night so let’s talk about the beer and what we’re watching.
What beer pairs well with air fryer waffle fries loaded with ranch and bacon?
The beer: Oberon from Bell’s Brewery.
We are sadly getting to the end of Oberon season. It feels like yesterday that I was making Smoked Sausage Nachos and pairing them with Larry’s Flamingo Fruit Fight at the beginning of Spring and now here we are, almost to September.
What TV Show pairs well with waffle fries and great Michigan Craft Beer?
Hubby and I have been binging The Boys. Great show and can I add that Elisabeth Shue looks amazing. As someone who is about to slide into the last part of the first part of her 40’s, hats off to you lady.
How to make Air Fryer Loaded Waffle Fries:
Start off by setting the air fryer to 400 degrees. *My air fryer has a ‘french fry’ setting so I set it to that which is 400 degrees. Check your manual for cooking times.
Fry the waffles fries for 15-20 minutes shaking the basket in 5-minute intervals so they don’t stick to the bottom.
Once the waffle fries have cooked in the air fryer to the desired goldenness take the basket of the fryer out.
Layer with the cooked bacon and ranch. See isn’t this a perfect ‘one pan’ snack attack?
Add cheese, then finally the green onions.
Cook in the air fryer for 2-4 minutes.
Serves with an ice-cold beer and here you are…..
