So I’m pretty much obsessed with my waffle maker lately and my latest addiction is quick and easy waffle hash browns. They make for such a perfect savoury breakfast (or any meal, really) that go well with a multitude of toppings.
It’s a nice change from typical breakfast foods and with potatoes being a great source of B vitamins, vitamin C and minerals like iron, potassium and magnesium, it’s nutritious too.
I’m looking forward to experimenting some more with different ingredients, possibly sweet potatoes and other seasonings next time. The possibilities are endless! 😉
- 1 onion
- 2 large potatoes
- Cayenne pepper
- Black pepper
- 2 Tbsp olive oil (or butter)
- 1 Tbsp flour (optional – I used Doves’s Farm gluten free plain flour)
This recipe yields 3 to 4 waffles.
- Grate the potatoes and squeeze as much liquid out as possible, either with your hand, a dish cloth or a sieve.
- Grate 1 onion.
- Mix both together with some cayenne pepper (I put a generous amount), salt, black pepper, olive oil and flour.
- Brush a bit of olive oil on the waffle iron plates and preheat.
- Spread the mixture on top and cook for about 15 minutes on medium/high heat, or until the outer layer has become crispy and the potato is fully cooked. If your waffle maker doesn’t have a heat control setting, the cooking time may vary.
Great with a fried egg, instead of toasts.
Or as more of an English breakfast with added baked beans. 🙂
