If you have a waffle machine and leftover mashed potatoes you can easily make homemade potato waffles which can be eaten as a savoury addition to any meal or add maple syrup, fresh fruit, yogurt or butter to enjoy as a treat.
Recipe type: Main Dish
Serves: 6
  • 6 medium potatoes cooked
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1½ cups flour
  • ¾ cup milk
  1. Place everything into a blender and mix well until it resembles a pancake batter.
  2. If you find that the potato waffle mixture is too sloppy just add a little flour until you get a pancake consistency.
  3. Oil waffle iron a little I use a pastry brush to do mine.
  4. Then into the waffle iron (or pan if making it pancakes) place 1½ tablespoons of mixture into the waffle iron and close lid.
  5. I have my waffle iron set at around 4 but it depends how brown and crispy you like them.
  6. Optional: Add cheddar cheese for a special potato cheese waffle. Use 1 cup strong cheese. Place 1 tablespoon of potato waffle mixture first then cheese and then top with a bit more batter as this keeps the cheese inside the waffle.
  7. You can also add all sorts of herbs to the potato batter before using the waffle iron. You can add cumin, parsley, spring onion etc.
