Potato Waffles

BEST ALTERNATIVE TO HOT CHIPS EVER!!!

These are so easy to make.  They don't take long and they can be served in so many ways.
Enjoy by itself, with tomato sauce, in a bread roll (who doesn't love a hot chip roll!!!???) served with salad, as a side or use them as a 'sandwich' to mix and match your veggies between 2 waffle potatoes!




Place potatoes in the microwave for 10 minutes with enough water to cover them completely.




Place a potato in a preheated waffle iron.


 






Press the lid til completely closed. The potato will squash down.


Heat for approx 4 minutes per potato.
You can press more than one potato at a time if you like. This will depend on the size potatoes you choose. 


I used baby potatoes for the example photos as they fit nicely into a bread roll.

  9. this looks amazing!! i don't have a microwave - I have a steamer, rice cooker and crockpot -- how would you recommend cooking the potatoes with those options so that i doesn't stick and comes out properly?

    (those are my only cooking options right now, we are in an RV)

    1. Hmmmm well to be honest I haven't tried those methods of cooking them, I know it would work ok with baked ovens. You'd just have to give it a try and see what works :-)

  11. Steam them instead of microwave or parboil would also work ... no microwave in this home.

  12. Hi Sandy, what a fantastic idea! I tried this today myself but every potato I put in there either stuck to the iron or became potato crumbs... Do you have an idea what I am doing wrong? ;) //Sam

    1. Hi Sam,
      Make sure your waffle machine is VERY hot before you start, and also that the potatoes are very dry. See how you go :-)

    1. You can cook them in a pot with water, just make sure they are really dry before you put them in the waffle maker or else they are more likely to stick.
