I’ve got the perfect method for getting evenly crisped hash browns every time! Ditch your frying pan and plug in your waffle iron for incredibly crispy and delicious hash browns the easy way.
Swap out your usual toast for Hash Brown Waffles, serve them with over-easy eggs, and you’ve got a winning breakfast. Using frozen tater tots makes your job even easier, as there’s no need to grate potatoes all morning long.
I tried this hack with both traditional tater tots and sweet potato tots and guess what — both came through with flying colors! Crisp, delicious hash browns, made with one easy, little ingredient.
Here’s all you’ll need for tasty hash browns: a waffle iron, nonstick baking spray, and regular or sweet potato tater tots.
Want the secret for flawless Hash Brown Waffles?
1. First, spray both sides of your waffle iron with nonstick baking spray. You’ll need about 35-40 tater tots to make a perfectly round hash brown. Next, press the waffle iron down firmly and don’t lift it for at least 5 minutes. Make sure not to peek, because lifting the waffle iron too soon will cause your hash browns to pull apart!
2. Once golden and crispy, remove it from the waffle iron and enjoy! You can eat your waffle as is, or serve it topped with a fried or poached egg, top with sour cream and salsa, sprinkle with fresh herbs, such as parsley, basil, or cilantro, or dip in ketchup.
Whether you make ’em with tater tots or bright orange sweet potato tots, Hash Brown Waffles will revolutionize your mornings!
