Waffle Iron Hash Browns
From the recipe collection of Al Dente Diva
It’s true. You can make hash browns in your waffle maker. Not only is it easy, but it’s also better then a lot of other methods I’ve tried.
Thats because the waffle maker crisps up the hash browns so well using virtually no oil. Therefore giving you all the hash brown feels without consuming a bunch of unnecessary calories along with it. Win!
In addition to that, the presentation is just beautiful. Look how pretty this waffle hash brown looks with the egg on top of it. C”mon, that’s a undeniable thing of beauty.
First things first, you need to own a waffle iron to make this. CLICK HERE to check out the one that Im using on Amazon.
- Russet Potatoes
- Shredded Cheese
- Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder
First, you’ll need to wash and clean your potatoes. Then, using the large grate section of your cheese grater, grate the potatoes.
The next step is probably the most critical of all. Dry the potatoes really well. It’s best to use a dish cloth to wring out as much water as you can. The potatoes need to be dry in order to get that nice golden crisp.
Now that the potatoes are as dry as the can get it’s time to add the egg.
Next is to season the potatoes. Don’t be shy here on the seasoning. Potatoes can taste really bland if they’re under seasoned. I use salt, pepper and garlic powder but feel free to use whatever you like.
Now add the cheese into the bowl and give everything a mix. Make sure that it’s all mixed together well.
Making the Hash Brown Waffles:
Preheat your waffle maker. Spray both sides with cooking spray when it’s hot.
Now add the potato mixture. Be sure to spread it evenly throughout the waffle maker.
Next, press the waffle iron down firmly. Let the hash brown waffle cook for about 5 minutes.
After that, it’s ok to take a peek. It will probably need a few more minutes depending on what setting you have your waffle maker at. Close it and continue cooking if needed.
When the waffle hash brown is finished, gently lift it up out of the waffle iron and onto a plate.
Finally, you did it! Your waffle iron hash brown is done and looking good.
Of course you can eat these waffle iron hash browns however you like. I added a sunny side up egg to mine. The possibilities are endless.
If you are planning to serve bacon along side this, I have a great method for oven baked bacon, too.
I got this waffle maker as a gift for my birthday last year. Its been so fun using it Lots of things can be done in here like cinnamon roll waffles!
