DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat waffle iron to high heat. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. When the iron is ready, pile one serving's worth of potato mix in the middle of the waffle iron and close.
  • The top should be slightly browned and crispy when it's done - otherwise the potatoes will fall apart. Fortunately, if the potato waffle starts to crumble as you try to take it out, you can just shut the iron again and let it cook some more.
