  1. I’m sorry, maybe this is silly, but I was expecting potatoes to be in the recipe based on the title. “Slices” of chives threw me as well. Nonetheless, it looks delicious and I will definitely be trying this soon.

    1. Isn’t that gorgeous? This recipe is from a cookbook review I did for Southern Living, so that dish is theirs.

  2. Melissa, could you tell me where I can buy a mandolin waffle fries maker. thank you Jodine Sauerman.

  3. If you have a mandolin waffle fries are simple to make. Slice as many as you like, leaving the peel on, then fry until crispy and golden at 350-360°F.
