|Next time I may add some onions and bacon in the mix.|
However I found my first batch, based on Internet pictures didn't work.
Waffle Makers, generally are built for cooking waffles. Mine, a somewhat commercial quality version has one heat setting, and has huge over sized waffle trays. Ideally it appears, a waffle maker with an adjustable thermostat may be a better option if you really want to continue to ask "will it waffle?"
That said, I did find a combination that eventually worked well for making hash-brown waffles. I went to the store and bought frozen, pre-shredded hash-browns. I microwaved them in a bowl till they were room-temperature. You're going to need a lot of hash-browns (one of my failures the first time). One bag may make four waffles in my maker. My first attempt (which failed) was primarily because I didn't pile, and cover the complete grate. The other trick I learned was to "marinate" the shreds in oil, rather than cook them in oil. Add an egg-marinate to bind and salt and pepper, and guess what, they turned out perfect.
Hash brown Waffles Ingredients:
- 1 raw egg whisked
- Hash brown shreds
- Cooking oil
- Salt & Pepper
- De thaw, and make sure shreds are room temperature. Place in bowl with egg, oil, salt, and pepper.
- Mix till shreds are thoroughly coated.
- Place in a clean un-oiled waffle maker and cook for about 10-15 minutes.
