A waffle is a food that is produced from leavened batter or dough and fried between two plates that have been designed to give it a certain size, shape, and appearance. Depending on the waffle iron used and the recipe, there are numerous variances. Waffles are consumed globally, but Belgium, where there are more than a dozen regional variations, is where they are most popular. Waffles can be made from scratch or simply heated after being cooked and frozen commercially. Long waffles that have been fried on a stick and are frequently drizzled with chocolate syrup and sprinkles are known as waffles on a stick. Waffles can be sweet and savoury too. Potato waffles are a perfect wholesome savoury dish that not only looks appealing but also is a treat to the taste buds.

1. 2 pounds baking potatoes—peeled,  coarsely shredded and squeezed dry

2. 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

3. 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

4. 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

5. 1 teaspoon baking powder

6. 3/4 cup shredded extra-sharp yellow cheddar cheese, plus more for topping

7. 3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter, plus more for brushing

8. 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon, plus more for topping

9. 1/3 cup chopped chives, plus more for topping

10. Sour cream, for topping


1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees while heating an 8-inch waffle iron. Combine the potatoes, eggs, flour, salt, baking powder, 3/4 cup of cheese, and 3 tablespoons of butter in a sizable basin. Add the 1/3 cup of chives and the 1/2 cup of bacon.

2. One-fourth of the potato mixture should be placed onto the waffle iron after it has been brushed with melted butter. Close the lid and cook the waffle for 5 to 7 minutes on high, or until it is golden and crisp. Transfer to an oven rack to maintain warmth. Use the remaining potato mixture in the same manner. Serve the waffles with sour cream, bacon, cheddar, and chives cut on top.
