  • ½ Grown In Idaho® Super Crispy Waffle Fries

  • 4 Slices Thick Cut Bacon

  • 1¼ lb. Ground Sirloin

  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt

  • ½ tsp Black Pepper

  • ½ C Blue Cheese Dressing or Blue Cheese Crumbles

  • 2 Scallions, thinly sliced

  • Toothpicks (optional)


  1. Heat skillet and cook bacon according to package instructions, or until crispy and browned. Transfer cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. When cool enough to touch, break into small 2” pieces.

  2. Now prep fries:
    OVEN: Preheat oven to 425°F. Arrange frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 18-20 minutes or until crispy. Stir halfway through cooking time to ensure even baking.

    AIR FRYER: Preheat air fryer to 360°F. Fill basket with half the frozen potatoes. Cook 12-13 minutes. Slide out basket halfway through cooking time and shake.

  3. Halfway through fry baking, divide ground ground beef into 1½ oz. patties (should yield ~13 sliders). Season generously on both sides with kosher salt and black pepper.

  4. Heat grill or skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, cook burgers for 3 minutes, then flip. Cook an additional 3 minutes for medium-rare, or until an internal temperature of 160°F is reached. Place each burger on a large cooked waffle fry, then top with a piece of cooked bacon and a heaping spoonful of blue cheese dressing or crumbles. Place another large waffle fry on top, then secure with a toothpick, if desired. Sprinkle scallions over sliders, then serve immediately.
