Waffle Hashbrowns

Learn More About This Recipe +

Hashbrowns are hard to get right-often they are too soggy, or not crispy enough. Using a wafflemaker helps clear up this problem entirely, by creating two extra crispy sides (helped with a bit of cheese),  and a soft interior. One of the best things is that these cook up fairly quickly and once they are in the waffle iron, leave your hands free to make some eggs to top them with. Make these as a side with eggs and fruit salad, or even as a fun potato side dish. The kids can easily help you whip them up!

Be sure to use russet potatoes, the starch gives you a better end product.
