Potato Waffles

Waffles are one of my favorite breakfast options, and once in a while, I do love a good waffle with simple pancake syrup. But I prefer savory breakfast to sweet. So I came up with my version of potato waffles served with a quick gravy that can be put together in 30 minutes. These Potato waffles with gravy are so delicious that we had it for dinner as well. A great tip to keep the waffles warm until you serve is to cook all the waffles and place them on a cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in an oven preheated to 100C.

How to make Potato Waffles


The first time I made these Waffles, I ran out of buttermilk, so I used milk. The flavor was good, but still, I felt something was missing. The second time, I used buttermilk, and my suggestion is to use buttermilk for the best tasting waffles. This recipe is excellent to use up your leftover mash potatoes.

The gravy is slightly spicy, but you could leave the chili powder out if you don’t like spicy food.

If you don’t own a waffle iron, no worries, you can use this recipe for making pancakes and still serve with the gravy. 

Ingredients 

potatoes

mushroom

bell pepper

onion

flour

baking powder

baking soda

black pepper

Garlic Powder/ fresh garlic

chili flakes

cheese

eggs

buttermilk

butter

Potato waffles with gravy

In a bowl, add all the veggies, cheese, including the spices, and mix well until combine using a rubber spatula. 

In a large bowl, add eggs, buttermilk, melted butter, and mix well with a whisk. 

Next, add the veggie mixture into the wet ingredients and mix well to combine.

Now, add the dry ingredients to the wet and using a spatula fold until combined. If you see a few lumps, that’s fine. Avoid over-mixing, this will make the waffles rubbery and tough. 

Preheat the waffle iron and spray with oil or butter. Pour 1/3 cup of batter and cook them until crisp and golden. Serve warm with gravy or just plain.
