Yup, I put potatoes in my waffle maker. What!? You don’t put potatoes in your waffle maker? Heresy!! These golden crisp-on-the-outside and creamy-cheesy on the inside savory snacks are absolutely mind blowing!
Needed for this recipe:
Sunshine Coast Olive Oil Co. Garlic Olive Oil
2 cups cold or room temperature mashed potatoes (preferably unseasoned)
1 cup bleached all purpose flour or ½ potato flour (starch)
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
2 large scallions thinly sliced
1/3 cup garlic olive oil
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons salt (less for pre-seasoned mashed potatoes)
fresh ground pepper to taste
Sour cream (optional for serving)
Heat the waffle maker. Meanwhile add all the ingredients to a large bowl including 1/2 of the scallions, and whisk thoroughly.
Grease the hot waffle iron well. Add 1/3 cup for each waffle. Cook until golden brown on the inside, about 5 minutes per waffle. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, additional scallions, and hot sauce, if desired.
