I love a slider in any form, but I especially love these Waffle Fry Sliders. So easy to make and a really great way to change up the classic burger.
You get the best of both worlds with a perfectly coked burger plus all your favorite toppings and a crispy waffle fry. We used Sweet Potato Waffle Fries because I just love them, but you can use any type you like. Burger and fries…literally.
My number one favorite way to cook fries of any kind is the air fryer. Even reheating restaurant fries. And we know how hard it is to recreate the goodness that is fresh restaurant fries.
I set my air fryer for 375 and do 10-12 minutes to get them crispy but still soft inside. These Waffle Fry Sliders need the waffle fry to be a bit crispier to hold up the burger and toppings.
These Waffle Fry Sliders are a mini version of a classic burger but you basically season and cook the same way.
My favorite way to cook burgers is on the grill. But if you happen to live in a climate where it gets to -20 and you don’t want t step outside (not that we haven’t though) Then my next favorite way is in a cast iron pan on the stove.
Season with a little salt and pepper, maybe garlic and onion powder. That’s it, I don’t get fancy. Once you form your mini patties, be sure to press a finger in the middle of the burger just to make an indentation. This helps the burger from shrinking up into a really tiny burger plus will help with cooking more evenly.

1 pound ground beef
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
Toppings: cheese, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard
1.Prepare Frozen Waffle Fries according to package directions.
2. While waffle fries are cooking, prepare your sliders. In a medium bowl, add the ground beef, a large pinch of salt and pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Mix together until all combined.
3.Prepare a pan on medium-high heat with a little butter and olive oil. Roll your hamburger meat into small balls, about 1 inch. Press down to make small patties. Press your finger into each pattie to make a small indentation.
4. Add patties to the pan and cook on each side 2-3 minutes until desired doneness. Remove from pan and set aside.
5. Once waffle fries are done and cooled slightly, build your burger with your favorite toppings.
6. Use a toothpick if needed to keep everything together. Enjoy!
