Easy Hash Brown Waffles

Did you know you can use your waffle maker to cook things other than just waffles?

Check out this recipe, which I've using regularly for weeks now.  The pictures below are of russet potatoes, but next up on our agenda, Sweet Potato Hash Brown Waffles.

Easy Hash Brown Waffles

1 large russet potato
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided use
1 egg

1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder (optional)
cooking spray

Using a food processor or grater, grate the unpeeled potato and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt.  Place in a colander and allow to drain, about 10 minutes:


Gently press the potato against the bottom of the colander as to remove any extra moisture.

Plug in waffle maker to preheat.

In a medium bowl, combine the remaining salt, egg, pepper, paprika and onion powder:

Add the grated potato and stir to combine:

Once the waffle maker is fully preheated, spray it with cooking spray and spread the mixture evenly on the waffle maker surface:

Close and cook 13-15 minutes.  Check the waffles.  If they are fully cooked to your desired brownness, serve and enjoy!

A drizzle of ketchup makes these hash brown waffles extra delicious!

Serves 4.

Life is sweet,
