Talk about taste sensation...who doesn't love tater tots cooked up with a crunch factor of 10 and then topped with creamy Gouda cheese, sauteed peppers, onions and an over easy egg on top! It's there; it's all there. Crunchy, creamy, cheesy, savory, sensational love bites that only a combination like this can bring. These waffles might make you want to dance; they did me!

(After I tried this technique of fixing up potatoes in the waffle iron I now buy tater tots just to make these breakfast waffles.)

The Whispers sing it perfectly, "It's A Love Thing"!

How to Make Tater Tot Waffles and Eggs

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat up your waffle iron. Spray your waffle iron with baking spray then add 12 to 15 tater tots side by side in each waffle space. I used 12 but if you want a larger waffle add more. Press the waffle iron down and let them cook.

    (I tried hash browns but couldn't get the crunch and thickness of a waffle like I did with the tater tots.)
  2. Meanwhile while they are cooking saute up your sliced onions with butter on low heat. Let those onions get nice and tender then add your sliced roasted red pepper. In another pan, cook up your eggs in some butter. Once the waffles are done about about 5 to 7 minutes...approx. open and add a little garlic salt then your cheese slices so they can melt.
  3. Plate your waffles, add the hot peppers & onions. Now top with your over easy egg, salt & pepper and add a dash of Frank's hot sauce.
  4. These are sensational breakfast waffles. They are so crunchy, with a melted creamy cheese and topped with peppers, onions and over easy egg...you'll love it!
