Hash browns or hashed browns is a popular American dish that is somewhat similar to a rösti. In so-called diners in North America and the United Kingdom, hash browns are a breakfast dish, where they are often baked on a large pan or grill. Until, someone came up with the brilliant idea of ​​putting it in a waffle maker, I would like to say that I came up with it, but unfortunately that is not the case. It doesn’t matter, the most important thing is: very tasty and also very easy to make!

Makes: 4 large waffles
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes (depending on your waffle maker)
Equipment: waffle maker

1 sweet potato
1 normal potato
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
salt and pepper
oil spray

Grate both the potatoes and soak the grated pieces for 10 minutes in a large bowl of cold water. This will release all of the starch and make the waffle much crisper in the end! After soaking it is also important to squeeze all the water out of the potatoes. The most convenient is to use an old but clean tea towel and put all the grated and soaked potatoes in and squeeze it out real good.

Then mix the potatoes, eggs, flour, pepper and salt in a bowl. Stir well so that everything is evenly distributed. Preheat the waffle iron and when the light turns green (like mine does) spray the top and bottom with oil spray and put a few tablespoons of the mixture in the waffle iron and click  to close. In the meantime don’t open it, really wait until the waffle maker tells you that they are ready, otherwise they will break and fall apart and you will get mad at me;)

Serve warm with some extra pepper and salt and your favorite sauce!
