Pat's Story

Trolling the internet looking for the meaning of hashmarks(stripes on sleeves of uniform from the service) checking on a photo of my grandfather, and came across this unrelated article and thought I would share it with everyone -because it is such a clever idea. Your kids will love these.


2 lb
bag of frozen tater tots, or regular hash brown potatoes or shredded type
salt , pepper and garlic powder to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Spray your waffle iron generously with cooking spray.
Place tater tots on waffle iron to cover each section. Close lid ,pressing down slowly.
After 1 minute, open the iron and add tots to any empty spaces, as needed.
Close lid and cook until crispy and golden brown -like waffles.
Remove from waffle iron. Salt and season lightly. Serve with ketchup, if desired.Enjoy!

Hey, Pat! These are great . Pinched and will try them out. I would have never thought to do hash browns in the waffle iron. I have thought I would try a grill cheese sandwich but I'm sure that's been done for a while. Thanks, for the pinch Pat.
