How To Make Lemon Feta Fries
Make your waffle fries. I prefer to bake mine but feel free to make them however you prefer; air fry, deep fry, pan fry, etc.
Whisk up the lemon olive oil sauce: olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic powder, dried oregano, dried parsley, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. I highly recommend making this sauce ahead of time and allowing it to chill in the refrigerator. This allows everything to meld together and amplifies the flavor of the sauce.
Sprinkle on cheeses and broil. Sprinkle all of the mozzarella cheese on top and only 6 ounces of feta cheese, set the remainder aside. Broil on low for 5 minutes. Just a note, broiling on high tends to char and burn the fries, yuck!
Drizzle with sauce. Make sure each of the waffle fries has a good amount of lemon olive oil sauce. You can also serve more of the sauce on the side too. Yes, it is that delicious!
Top with remaining feta cheese. Eat them while they are piping hot!
