Looking for a Sunday brunch recipe that warms the heart?  Check out this fun recipe from Chef Rachel.


From Rachel:

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.


Serves 6-8
