Yup, I put potatoes in my waffle maker. What!? You don't put potatoes in your waffle maker? Heresy!! These golden crisp-on-the-outside and creamy-cheesy on the inside savory snacks are absolutely mind blowing!
2 cups cold or room temperature mashed potatoes (preferably unseasoned) 1 cup bleached all purpose flour or 1/2 potato flour (starch) 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese 2 large scallions thinly sliced 1/3 cup Ghiggeri's Garlic Infused Olive Oil 1 large egg, beaten 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 teaspoons salt (less for pre-seasoned mashed potatoes) fresh ground pepper to taste Sour cream (optional for serving)
Heat the waffle maker. Meanwhile add all the ingredients to a large bowl including 1/2 of the scallions, and whisk thoroughly.
Grease the hot waffle iron well. Add 1/3 cup for each waffle. Cook until golden brown on the inside, about 5 minutes per waffle. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, additional scallions, and hot sauce, if desired.
