Mashed Potato Waffles?

Yes, that's right, mashed potato waffles!  This recipe is yet another Pinterest find.  It's been waiting out there on my "Sides" board for months waiting until we had some left-over mashed potatoes!  Guess what?  Last night I made a roast and mashed potatoes so this morning we had some left-over mashed potatoes and I could finally try this recipe!



Here is a link to the recipe:
Mashed Potato Cheddar and Chive Waffles

I think the recipe had me with browned butter.  Who doesn't love ANYTHING with browned butter in or on it?  A little butter is browned and mixed with egg and buttermilk.  I didn't have any buttermilk in the house so I made my own with a little vinegar and milk.  The left over mashed potatoes and some chives are added to this, and finally the dry ingredients, a little flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and pepper.  The recipe called for a little garlic powder.  I left that out but I'm sure it would be delish!

The batter is pretty thick which had me a little nervous about how it would cook up in the waffle iron.



The pictures in the recipe are of cute little round waffles.  I didn't want to have to wait that long for breakfast so I started with two dollops per round.  My waffle iron only makes one waffle at a time. I do have a nicer, double waffle iron on my Amazon wish list if anyone is dying to buy me a nice spendy gift!  Until then, we'll just do this!


The waffles took about the same amount of time as any waffle batter.  They did mush together in the waffle iron but that was ok.  They were a beautiful golden brown!


How did they taste?  We loved them!  They had a mashed potato/hash brown flavor from the browning in the waffle.  The chives gave them a little brightness.  They were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside!


The recipe called for melting cheddar cheese on the top.  Neither my hubby or I thought that sounded good so I skipped that step too.  I put the cheese on the omelet instead.  I asked Dave if he wanted syrup and he said he'd contemplated that but it didn't sound right, neither did the left over gravy.  We both agreed they were perfect just plain!  


This is how I'm going to use up left over mashed potatoes from now on!
