Last week I hosted an office Valentine’s Brunch. I made cheesy mashed potato waffles for the potluck brunch. My colleagues were impressed and asked for the recipe. I thought it was a post worthy occasion so I decided to make it again to share with you all. Besides, I wanted my own crispy mashed potato waffles for breakfast today.
I came up with this recipe a while back when I had a big bowl of leftover garlic mashed potatoes from a family dinner. Although my garlic mash was absolutely delicious, I thought transforming it into waffles would be even more adventurous. I know this is a hit because the pickiest eaters have enjoyed this waffle.
Mashed Potato Waffles
Make 3 waffles
4 Red potatoes, peeled and cut
1/3 stick of butter, cut
1/3 cup shredded cheese
1/3 cup of whole milk
3 cloves of garlic
1 and 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons green onions
cooking spray oil
Boil potatoes and garlic cloves in 1 quart water with 1 teaspoon salt. Cook potatoes for 20 minutes or until it’s soft. Drain the potatoes and garlic in a colander.
Turn on the waffle maker. Let it heat up.
In a mixing bowl, combine potatoes, garlic, butter, cheese, salt, green onions and milk. Mash the potatoes and other ingredients until you have a soft and creamy mashed potato consistency.
When the waffle maker is heated and ready, spray the waffle maker with cooking oil. Spoon mashed potatoes onto the waffle maker and close it. Cook for 4-5 minutes.
Your potato waffles are ready when it’s crispy and golden. Top it with green onions, ketchup and/or sour cream. Make it a loaded potato waffle by adding bacon bits to the mashed potatoes. Any way you make it, you still have a fun and delicious potato waffles. Husbands, boyfriends, coworkers, parents and kids will love it!
