This is a super easy way to make hashbrowns. No worries about burning or checking the pan every few minutes. Just throw some grated potato onto a waffle iron and go about your business for 15-20 minutes.
Nice and crisp!
After potatoes are grated, twist them up in a clean tea towel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible - the drier the mix, the crispier the hashbrowns. Season with salt and pepper.
Spray the waffle iron lightly with cooking oil spray. Then spread out the grated potato - I used about 1 1/2 cups of potato for this single batch - then close the lid. The waffle iron will indicate it is ready earlier than it is. You will likely need a minimum of 10 minutes, but mine took closer to 15.
