Recipe by Janel
"Similar to latkes but the waffle iron makes a lot more crunchy surface area and steams the potatoes perfectly. Serve immediately with your favorite hash brown toppings."

We are having a snowy day and since I had frozen shredded potatoes in the freezer this seemed like a good thing to try. I let the frozen potatoes thaw although they were still cold and I added a diced onion that I carmelized before adding. I must say that like waffles, my first one did not come out. My mistake was not spreading out the potatoes but piling it up in the center just like waffle batter. That didn't work and it was a mushy pile after 20 minutes. Once I spread it out thin, they cooked crispy and delicious. I believe I would add more than one onion next time (this one was rather small) and a little more garlic salt. Overall this was a good experience and we will do it again. Thanks!
well, let me tell you; i love this method a lot better than standing over a stove frying greasy potato pancakes!! i added some grated onion to this; soaked along with the potatoes and used my salad spinner to dry. thanks so much for the post Janel! will make again for sure!
Creative! I liked the addition of smoked paprika and garlic for some extra flavor. This makes for a great breakfast sandwich also. Just use in place of toast.
After reading the reviews, I followed the other reviewers’ suggestions of adding onions, thinly spreading the potatoes onto the waffle griddle, and cooking smaller waffles for five minutes. If you are making smaller waffles as I did, I recommend preheating your oven for 200° to keep them warm while the others are cooking because it does take some time to cook them all.
Fun, simple and delicious! I used a bag of refrigerated shredded hash browns, so I omitted step 2. I also added in some onion powder, but would like to try adding fresh onion next time. I could see adding a lot of different spices. I made mine smaller and got 6 out of the recipe. I cooked them about 5 mins. or so. I was worried about them sticking, but they didn't. Very cool and a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
