Hash Brown Waffles


Two titans of the brunch world have united to form the perfect food in Hash Brown Waffles.

Hash Brown Waffles

Hash browns and waffles are two integral parts of a balanced breakfast (well, a DELICIOUS breakfast, at least). But there are just some mornings when you only have time to eat one (I don’t know why you would only have time to eat one; just go with me on this, OK?). It’s like the Sophie’s Choice of brunch! And it’s a lose-lose proposition (which, I suppose, is the essence of a “Sophie’s choice” dilemma). No matter which one you choose, you’ll feel like you missed out on the other. Well, with this recipe, such decisions are a thing of the past.

The shredded potato of the hash brown has been ironed to form a lovely waffle! It’s easy, it’s tasty, and what’s more, it just feels right, you know? Make these and you will never have to choose between the two ever again. Crisis diverted, amiright?!

are Hash Brown Waffles Healthy?

The question is really, “Are potatoes healthy?” because that’s pretty much all that’s in this dish. Oh, and eggs, but I’ve posted enough egg recipes for you to know how I feel about them (recap: I love them!). Potatoes are loaded with carbs, which some may shy away from, but I think carbs in the morning is a great idea, providing you with energy to get through the day. Because of those carbs, this isn’t one for keto dieters, though you can enjoy it if you’re on a vegetarian, gluten-free or whole30 diet.

How is kosher salt different from table salt?

Kosher salt has larger, coarser flakes. Some chefs prefer to use it because its size makes it easier to handle. They probably also like that it doesn’t contain any iodine, which is commonly found in table salt. Iodine isn’t a bad thing, though it does affect taste, making table salt assume a metallic or bitter profile. If you wanted to use table salt for this recipe, start with 1/4 teaspoon. Kosher salt is less dense and flakier, so there will be less of it in a teaspoon than one of table salt.

FAQs & Tips

Can I make these waffles ahead of time?

If you plan on entertaining guests at your next brunch, then why not make a number of waffles ahead of time? Just keep them in the oven set on LOW so they stay warm. Don’t make them too far in advance, though, or they will lose their freshness and dry out.

How do I store these waffles?

If you have leftovers, let them cool first. Then wrap them in plastic or aluminum foil then store them in the fridge where they should last for up to five days. If you think you’re going to want them in four months’ time, wrap them in plastic then aluminum foil and put them in the freezer. You can also store them in an airtight container if wrapping them is too much of a hassle.

Can I use frozen shredded potatoes?

Sure, though you’ll need to let them thaw then apply a bit of elbow grease to strain them dry.

Which vegetable oil do you recommend?

Anything neutral-tasting, like a sunflower or Canola. Others, such as olive or coconut oil, have a distinct taste and may not go well with the rest of the ingredients.

How do I get crispy waffles?

The more you rid them of moisture, the crispier they will be. So place the shredded potato between absorbent paper towels and squeegee away.

Serving Suggestions

Assuming you’ve made these for brunch, I have a number of suggestions to pair them with. First is this recipe for Baked Bananas. I like using it as a brunch dessert, such is its sweetness. Plus, it’s easy to do. If you’ve been out for brunch lately, you may have wondered at how they make Soft Scrambled Eggs. Well, wonder no more with this recipe. And what would a brunch be without Bacon? This recipe will teach you how to get crispy strips using only your microwave.
