Hash Brown Waffles

makes 2

  • 1 large russet potato, finely shredded and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt & pepper
  • 3-4 dashes hot sauce
  • cooking spray

Preheat oven to 200F.  Place a baking sheet on the middle rack.

Heat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions. Spray the iron with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, mix half of the shredded potatoes (I find it’s best to shred right before you plan on making each waffle) with 1 tablespoon butter, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, salt & pepper and a few dashes of hot sauce. Stir until well combined. Place the shredded potato mixture on the waffle iron and cook until steam from the waffle iron dissipates and the waffle is crispy, about 10-15 minutes. Place waffle in the oven on the baking sheet to keep warm and repeat the process with the remaining ingredients. Serve waffles with your favorite ingredients.
