Waffled Hashbrowns

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.

  1. What a great idea - they use less oil than cooking in a pan and you get more crisp surface area, which is the best part! I only have a Belgian waffle maker - I'm wondering if the cavities are too deep to make these.
