So, I read an article linking to this original post:

http://dudefoods.com...french-fry-bun/

 

And I thought, holy crap!  That looks delicious and (minus the gross food glue dunno whats in that)  gluten free.  Think of the possibilities... Like those baked cheesy bacon potato skin thingies used as a hamburger bun.  Mmmmm.  Or two twice baked potatoes used as a hamburger holding device.  

 

I think next time I go to Chik Fil A and they aren't busy, I am going to ask them to do something for me.  You know those addicting waffle fries and you sometimes get one that is the size of the carton... I am going to ask them to find me two of those in the bag of frozen ones, so I can make a chicken and french fry sandwich.  The manager and a few staff members at the one near me recognize me as "celiac girl".  Oh, I am totally putting that ranch dipping sauce on it.  Who cares what the mess is.  Does Chik Fil A sell bacon for their sandwiches?  It would make an excellent addition and hold in the sauce.

 

Now I really want to get a waffle fry cutter, go buy some giant round hamburger shaped potatoes, and make myself a waffle fry bun hamburger.

 

I have been really hungry today... can you guys tell?  Half my town including us had no power all day so I sat around reading stuff on my cell phone until it died.  I couldn't wait to come post this.

Just showed one of my sons -- he will be trying something like this very soon...I'm thinking I may need to do a sweet potato version at some point as well!

Maybe you could make one with hash brown cut potatoes?  Use a little egg & rice flour for the glue?  Like a latke?  Or left over mashed potatoes with the egg and the flour?

I actually fry my hash browns as a patty until they're crisp. That's brilliant, I could just do two small ones. I had been thinking I could get a mandoline (I keep hounding my husband for one but he says $100 is too much to spend on a single kitchen gadget <_<) and just do the giant waffle fry thing. The hash browns could get me by until I can talk him into my "gadget."

I like Karen's idea of using egg to hold the fries together.  Probably other things we could sue too ifn some of us put out noodles together.

You can tell your husband that although it is an expensive gadget, it is essential! I have one and use it nearly every day- it is wonderful for cutting veggies for salads, soups, potatoes for Spanish omelettes, etc. it it my most used kitchen implement, and also the most dangerous one as one can cut oneself very badly- At home we have a rule where nobody is allowed to speak to me whilst I am using it!! Also make sure you buy a good one as not all of them work as well.

Oh, I already have mine picked out! I have for years now. <_< For a long time the biggest issue was that my ataxia was so bad that I probably would have taken off the end of a finger. Now though, I think I'll be fine. I also realize it is something I'll use at least 4 or 5 times a week if not every day. But when it comes to parting my man with his wallet... :rolleyes: He's lucky I don't whine for the $300 I want, he's getting off light at $100.

Spend the $ on a good, quality mandolins with a stable base and NEVER use your fingers to hold the item you're slicing.

Yeah. Sliced the tip of my finger off cause I'm an idiot. They glued it back (wanted to stitch it but I said nasty mean things). Took years for the nerves to feel semi normal.

I once worked third shift in a grocery store with an older gentleman and it was just the two of us for the whole store. We were expected to cashier and man the deli. I watched him slice off the tip of his finger in the deli one night, so I know the danger. I also worked in a steakhouse once and we used those giant things to cube whole heads of lettuce at once and used the safety gloves for that so the worst you would do is shatter every bone in your hand, not also cube your hand (and subsequently waste the restaurant's money by ruining the lettuce with your blood :lol:).

 

I've waffled between getting one of those gloves for safety, because I'm a Lucy. And not because of the loss of dexterity. They're really cheap though, $10-20 I think for one and you only need one for the hand you're cutting with.

 

Oh, and while the one I picked is only $100(ish) it seems to be quality and the reviews are good so I'm totally set on it.

As soon as I saw this post, last night for dinner, we had grilled burgers and I used waffle fries for my bun.  I thought this was a brilliant idea and it tasted great too.  I just got some frozen waffle fries and cut the burger in half and ate it as 2 mini burgers, with cheese, bacon and ranch dressing - it was delicious!  Thanks for the suggestion!

I mentioned another mandoline once and my husband yelled at me in public. Told everyone in the store I chopped the tip of my finger off and ruined his golf game.

He had told me, at first sight, that I'd chop my finger off and I told him I wouldn't, if course....

I'm worse than Lucy...I'm a Stooge.

Oooooohhhh mini burgers!!! Genius!  

 

When I bought my mandoline slicer recently (doesn't do waffle fries though, dangit!) my husband made me pinky swear I would always use the included food guard before letting me get it off the shelf.  I am very accident prone and I think me having that scares him, lol.
