Potato Waffles

Potato Waffles

SuperWifey

"Here's a quick and delicious way to use up those leftover mashed potatoes. You WILL need a waffle iron. These are basically potato pancakes (a.k.a. latkes) but without all the greasy clean-up and calories from pan-frying. I usually serve them with fish or chicken and sauteed apples."

When my husband saw me fire up the waffle maker, he had his mouth set for butter and maple syrup, so these waffles took him by surprise! I had sour cream and chive instant mashed potatoes in my ...

Very good, nice change from potato pancakes. We topped the waffles with sour cream & served with applesauce & pork sausage patties. Thanks for the recipe.

Fun twist to potato pancakes! I added some finely shredded cheddar and green onion to the mix and used bisquick mix instead of just flour. Just use your waffle maker's instructions for the bak...
