Savory Potato Waffle

Yumm I would make these again!

OK these are really good and I think you could use them in many different applications. Start with your ingredients:

2 pounds russet potatoes (peeled and grated)

2 large egg beaten

4 tablespoons flour

1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

1 teaspoon coarse black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/2 cup cubed prosciutto (King Soopers for CO folk )

1/2 cup green onions sliced thin (the whole onion green & white)

3 tablespoons melted butter

For starters place your grated potatoes on sheets of paper towels, really squeeze out any water. Then place in a mixing bowl. In a small bowl mix your flour and all your seasonings (baking powder included). Add the eggs, melted butter, cheese, onions and prosciutto with a large spoon mix until well incorporated. Add  your flour mixture.

Warm up your waffle iron. When nice and hot brush with oil or melted butter or spray oil. My iron has four compartments, I place a little mound in the center of each compartment.  Close and cook until waffle is golden and crisp. About 5 to 7 minutes. Use batter immediately, potatoes will turn brown if you make to far in advance.

You can keep waffles warm in the oven as you continue to make more have your oven at 200*

Top with Sunny side egg, or smoked salmon & creme fraiche, avocado tomato salsa. I am even thinking of trying for dinner with chicken or pork saltimbocca. Use your imagination.

Also try cooked bacon or rosemary ham (also at King Soopers) in replace of the prosciutto. Try switching up the cheese also.

Buon Appetito
