Waffle maker hash browns from scratch

Lynn Socko


This is a basic recipe that has so many options, and as I try new things I will add them here. The great thing about making these from scratch is you can control the sodium and fat level!!!

A great way to use up leftover baked potatoes, or next time throw a few extra in the oven or on the grill, refrigerate until you are ready to grate and use.

How to Make Waffle maker hash browns from scratch


  1. Wash potato skins, prick potato with a knife and cook in microwave for about 15 min or until potatoes are fork tender.
  2. Allow to cool completely. Grate, the skin will come right off. You can refrigerate them for a few hours or overnight before grating if you wish.
  3. Season to your liking with your favorite potato seasonings. Drizzle with olive oil, about 1 to 1 1/2 tbs. I spread mine out in an oblong pyrex dish so I could season and drizzle evenly. Now mix together with hands, spread back out and refrigerate till cold.
  4. Spray waffle maker with non stick spray and heat. Place handfuls of potatoes in each square (or circle). Close lid and heat for about 15 min. or until nice and brown. Remove gently. If they tend to stick you might let the waffle maker cool off a bit, mine came right out though. NOTE: you can make them thinner by putting less in each slot.
