I shared the other day on Instagram (in my instastories) that you can cook your hashbrowns in the toaster. And I was surprised at how ‘poo-poo’ed’ the idea was. I definitely did not cause a fire in my kitchen nor did it become the only thing that my kids would eat. But I thought that I would share this recipe for cheesy potato waffles for those who think that everything needs to be made from scratch.
The boys love these cheesy potato waffles in the morning – but I don’t make them very often as we don’t often have any leftover mashed potatoes…oh what’s that, my family of five polished off 2 kilos of mashed potatoes?
I am seriously worried about when these three boys are teenagers and how much food they will power through.
Anyways, back to cheesy potato waffles. I think that these are perfect for brunch. And I think that these could be a really delicious way to start Christmas morning. You could serve them with a little sour cream and smoked salmon – wash it all down with a little processco?
CHEESY POTATO WAFFLES
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 tbsp butter
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
3 Spring onions
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat the waffle iron.
In large bowl, whisk together butter, buttermilk and eggs. Stir in the mashed potatoes, spring onions and cheese until well combined.
Fold the flour mixture into the potato mixture until it’s well combined.
Scoop 1/2 to 2/3 cup (depending on the size of your waffle baker) of the mixture into the prepared waffle baker, spreading it into an even layer. (The potato mixture will not spread or expand as much as a regular waffle, so it’s important to spread it in an even layer.) Close the lid and let the waffle bake until golden brown and the egg is cooked throughout.
Transfer the waffle to a serving plate then repeat the filling and baking process with the remaining potato mixture.
Serve the potato waffles topped with sour cream and smoked salmon for something a little special.
Have you ever whipped up a recipe from my blog? I would love for you to let me know…So I don’t feel as if I am just writing all this stuff down for nothing… If you choose to whip up one of my recipes , then I would love for you to share it on social media, and don’t forget to use the hashtag #goodfoodweek.
