We make waffle potatoes for breakfast a few times a week because they are so easy and filling.

We love waffle potatoes because they’re

  • Super easy and fast
  • Substantially filling breakfast
  • Low-fat
  • Oil-free
  • Delicious

How to make waffle potatoes

It’s so simple to do this, especially if you have leftover baked potatoes in the refrigerator already.

If there are no leftover cooked potatoes available, you’ll want to start by washing and scrubbing some fresh raw potatoes.

I have a handy kitchen gadget called a Potato Express Bag that allows me to cook a potato in the microwave in about 4-5 minutes, and they come out flakey and delicious.

Once cooked and cooled enough to handle, slice the potato open and place it on a hot waffle iron or panini press. I have used both, and either works great.

I like to add diced onions and spices like sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, nutritional yeast, and even smoked paprika.

Lower the lid on the waffle iron and cook for approximately 8 minutes until golden brown. Appliance temperatures vary, so keep an eye on yours the first time cooking.

Keeping it from sticking

A couple of important things to remember to keep it from sticking. First, always season your waffle iron or press periodically to maintain the surface area. Second, allow plenty of cooking time for potatoes to get crispy.

Once they are good and crisp, the potato flesh will release from the top and bottom plates. If you open yours and they are stuck to the top, simply allow a few more minutes of cooking time.

Sometimes, we make waffle sweet potatoes, though they do stick a little more than regular potatoes.

The great thing is you can go get ready while they are cooking both sides at the same time, with no flipping required. Breakfast in minutes!

Plant-based vegan sausage makes a great addition when serving this for breakfast. It is one of the many products that I like to order from MamaSezz meal delivery service. It comes ready to heat and eat, and it can also be frozen.
