I think I may have just entered a stage of my life entitled "waffle iron obsession." I saw these waffle iron hashbrowns pinned awhile ago, but the pin just links to a picture. That drives me crazy as a blogger. I can't take credit, and I can't find the original owner after an extensive search. If you know where this originated, let me know and I'll link....every site I've found doesn't list the original site, but they seem to all spring up the same time....hmmm. Mystery. Whoever it is, is a genious. Since there was not link, I just sort of invented some simple instructions. You could certainly jazz these up by shredding your own potatoes, adding onions, or fun toppings like sour create, but I just went for the basics, and I was pleased enough, it's going to be a regular at my house. As if I needed another reason to make another form of potato....
Basically, I bought a bag of frozen hash browns. I already had a two person waffle iron. I use 'person' lightly b/c the second waffle usually makes it's way into a doggy dish if I'm feeling full.
I sprayed the whole 'machine' with cooking spray when it was heated up. I threw down some hash browns and squeezed it tightly shut until the machine said it was finished. It probably took about ten minutes.
Crunchy on the outside, just soft enough on the inside. You could make at least ten with a bag of hashbrowns. Yum! And now I'm off to see what fits in a waffle iron. :My chihuahua seems to be moving very rapidly away from my location at the moment.:
