How to Make Loaded Potato Waffles
- Preheat a waffle iron and prepare it with non-stick spray or brush it with vegetable oil.
- Put mashed potatoes into a large mixing bowl and smooth out any major lumps. Add cheddar cheese, eggs, sour cream, salt, chives (and any other desired seasonings) and mix thoroughly.
- Add flour, baking powder and a quarter cup of milk. Mix the batter thoroughly. Continue adding milk by the tablespoonful until the batter is not too stiff. The consistency should be like a milkshake. Pudding texture might be too thick. The batter should spread somewhat when it is scooped into the waffle iron.
- Place desired amount of batter into the waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer's instructions. Personally -- I monitor the steam output. When there is barely a stream of steam trickling out of one side of the waffle iron, then I know the waffle is ready and a deep golden brown. This could take between 5-7 minutes per waffle.
- Pry the waffle carefully out of the waffle iron and serve immediately, or keep warm in a low oven. I have not yet tested re-warming these in the toaster, but I expect no issues since they cook fully in the waffle iron.
Prepare the waffle iron with non-stick or oil before dropping the next portion of batter.
- I have only eaten this waffle two ways: plain or with pancake syrup. I imagine that it would be a delicious vehicle for scrambled eggs and bacon or an interesting addition to lunch or dinner.
